TWITTERSTORM THE STAR OF THE SHOW

Barry Drake

TWITTERSTORM, an unlucky loser last time out, produced a magical display in Wednesday's eighth-race at Youghal track.

Sent off the 11-4 second choice of the punters, the Mark Drinan-trained runner came away running from the outside. Sweeping the bend in front, he was soon tracked by the strong running Tooshartoocatch. Finding plenty in front, the impressive winner finished strongly to beat Toosharptoocatch, by a length and a half, in 28.97, for owner, Ronan Barry, Rathcormac.

WELL BACKED

Well backed to win race five, an A4, Hollyhill Chico (6-4) didn't let her supporters down when breaking in front and making all the running to win in style.

A strong running type, she pulled right away to win, by nine lengths, in 29.11, for Ger Gubbins, Fermoy. Bingo Player was best of the rest in second.

BACK TO BACK WINS

A recent winner around Clonmel, Rapid Jack made it back to back wins when taking the closing race, for Joe Crotty, Dungarvan.

Prominent early, he hit top gear apporching the third corner and he pulled right away to score, in 29.18. A classy performance in the A1/A2 contest.

SMART WINNER

Curragh Sonic made it three wins from just six career outings when running out a smart winner of the seventh, an A0-A1.

Up two grades for a recent success, the 11-2 shot confirmed his status as a promising youngster. Our Dog Alfie finished well to get within a length, in 29.21.
