TWO STANDOUT PERFORMANCES AROUND YOUGHAL

Barry Drake

BLITZN JET (Sparta Maestro-Affane Beauty) produced a top-class performance in Wednesday night's fourth race at Youghal.

A full brother to Dromana Bucko, the Fechin Mullen trained dog was making it three wins from seven career outings when clocking an exceptional 28.86.

In the ownership of Anna Stapel and Fechin Mullen, the 3-1 shot led before the opening corner, he then pulled a length clear of Witches Colombia to the third bend. Flying up the home straight, he increased the lead to seven and a half lengths. A special run from the exciting tracker.

TREBLE FOR  KEHOE AND MAJOR

SLANEYSIDE MAJOR (9-4) took the seventh, an A0-A1 contest, making it three straight wins.

Showing a lovely injection of pace heading into the opening corner, she took over in front and went on to win in style, in 28.95. In superb form in recent times, Major delivered another high class performance and at the line, she was four and a half lengths clear of Seaview Lexi.

It was a great night for Kehoe as he went home with three winners.
