Killeagh owners Sheila Spillane and JJ Fennelly have another exciting youngster on their hands as Burgess Flyer made a spectacular winning debut in last night's opener at Youghal track.
A short-priced favourite throughout, the March puppy was sent off at odds of 4-7. Taking a step to the right from trap one early doors, he was firmly in control after a few strides. Witches Montana was within touching distance going down the back, but the bright prospect pulled right away from halfway. At the line, he was 11 lengths clear, in 29.13.
NO STOPPING THE LYNCH KENNEL
There's just no stopping the Cappoquin kennel of Andrew Lynch and he sent out another top-class winner with Glowing Exile, who stormed to victory in race six, an A3.
Pulling clear in the latter stages, she came home with six and a half lengths to spare over Seaview Misty, in 28.90
A SIZZLING RUN
Sizzler, owned and trained by Pat Moloney, Garryvoe, put on another top-notch performance to take race 10, an A2.
Taking over down the far side, the 3-1 winner galloped to a four-length success, in 29.12. Fairhill Corney next best.
IN OTHER RACES
Twitterstorm, trained by Mark Drinan for Ronan Barry, made it four wins from seven career outings with another superb performance in race eight, an A2 event. A 29.14 winning run for the 7-2 winner, half a length clear of Tattoo.
Race seven, an A0-A1, went the way of in-form Millview Dower with Noel Condon's star tracker making it three straight wins. Taking a heavy bump at the opening corner, the 7-2 winner then came from near to last to win, in 29.34. A neck back to Witches Phoenix.
Knockacrump Oz impressed when winning race four, A3 event. Strong all the way home, Brendan Kearney's 7-2 shot ran out an impressive three and a half-length winner from Seaview Origi, in 29.22.
Race 11, an A1 event, went the way of Witches Rio who took over midway down the back straight and the 5-2 winner pulled away for a comfortable success. Liam Twomey's pacey performer stopping the clock in 29.02.
