Clinical Eske storms to another brilliant win
Barrie Draper: Trains the new Derby favourite Ballymac EskePICTURE: STEVE NASH
MONMORE served up another Thursday night treat for RPGTV viewers this week with highlights being two very interesting finals.
First up was the Ladbrokes.com 480 Puppies Trophy decider at 8.42 and it was a privilege to see Ballymac Eske produce another stunning all-round clinical performance.
Barrie Draper's star, who smashed the track record here last week, broke well and went round in front closely tracked by market danger Fridays Daryl.
However, the September 10 pup stepped on the accelerator down the far side to draw away and simply destroy the opposition by nine lengths in 27.71sec and get a 16-1 quote for the 2013 Derby.
The Dual Distance Trophy final at 9.15 saw Sandra Ralph's Liscahane Razl, the fastest of last week's heat winners albeit over 630m, squeeze round in front and once on the bunny show plenty of resolution to hold Maxines fancy bythree-quarters of a length in 28.41sec.
