TWOINAROW FAVOURITE FOR CHAMPION STAKES GLORY

Ian Fortune

Sponsors Boylesports believe Twoinarow is the one to beat in the final of the Champions Stakes on Saturday night at Shelbourne Park despite suffering defeat behind One Time Only last weekend.

Twoinarow did storm home behind his conqueror but he is normally a flying starter. The Pat Kiely trained star is a 5-2 chance to come home in front in the €20,000 to the winner decider. Bockos Budsit is second in at 3-1.

He was picked up by Sentimental Lad last weekend but is seen as a possible pace-setter and is certainly a leading fancy. Laurels champion One Time One Shelbourne 575yd track record holder Sentimental Lad are next in at 7-2.

Droopys Nice one is sure to attract some support at 5-1, while the remarkable Beach Avenue is a massive 16-1.
