Miss Joss was highlighted a number of weeks back after a hugely impressive debut at Galway greyhound stadium saw her clock a brilliant 28.74. Fast forward three weeks later and the Mullins-Curtin syndicate owned bitch is back in the headlines with another hot performance.
An October 18’ daughter of ‘Sparta Maestro - Blundel Spark’, Miss Joss left behind her novice tag and stepped into A2 company in her pursuit of maintaining an unbeaten record and she could hardly have been more impressive. Despite heading to post the 7/4 favourite, it was Millrose Star who took the early initiative from trap one and led into the opening corner from the progressing Miss Joss in second place. The striped jacketed runner nestled nicely in behind at this point and looked a huge threat off the second turn. Motoring to the front midway down the back straight, Miss Joss proved a class above as she stepped it up and manoeuvred away from the field in good style. The manner of the victory was very impressive as Miss Joss came home a near five length winner over Confused Keggy in second. The time, as expected, was a very quick calculated 28.60 and this bitch is certainly heading in the right direction.
Another very fast return on the night at the Connacht venue came in race ten from the Adam Forde owned Oh My Knees.
A 28.99 winner in the past, Oh My Knees (Kinloch Brae - Leamaneigh Lisa) had not tasted success in quite a while but had been banging at the door in recent starts which was a good indication of what was to follow last night. Fast away from trap two, Oh My Knees quickly hit the front and she wasn’t for catching thereafter. Outpacing the remainder of the field throughout, the 2/1 market chance, had over five lengths in hand come the winning line as the clock returned a slick 28.63.
