Maralin: Baltazar D’Allier is a beautiful looking model who showed an exceptional turn of foot in a tactical affair. Runner up Semper Fortis made a notable mistake in the latter stages and is one to take for likely improvement on this very encouraging debut. Ballycross has run well yet again and Funny Irish made a very encouraging debut.
Liscarroll: Stowaway Magic battled best to sprint home which was no surprise as his dam has form on the flat and he is a very useful looking youngster. Knocknamona made an encouraging debut in third.
Lisronagh: Stage One is potentially a high class sort by Kings Theatre and from a family packed with winners. Burrenbridge Hotel had run well before falling at the last on his debut and again showed a lot of promise here. Fenlons Hill and Humpback Bridge, both third and fourth respectively, ooze potential and showed encouraging performances.
Rathmorrisey: Soupy Soups had shown promise at Tyrella but made most here and battled when required to hold off the runner up. He is a tough hardy youngster with the attitude to win plenty of races. Shambougg made a very encouraging debut here and will be sure to come on for this next time.
Maralin: Thebarrowman is a very interesting son of Mahler. A half-brother to Warrantor who won a maiden for connections last season and is already a 135 hurdler for Warren Greatrex. Thebarrowman won going away is notable and he is a very exciting debutante. Runner up A Plein Temps yet again ran with plenty of credit and his success is surely just around the corner.
Borris: A Bold Move had been second to Fagan at Tyrella (Fagan won a winners race at Maralin on Saturday on next outing) so it was no surprise with that level of form that he won here and looks a sharp type with plenty of gears. Flans O Man ran a cracker on his debut and is a half-brother to MIlsean who ran a big race in defeat when a close second at Cheltenham. Prince Of Steal is a solid sort who has now been placed on all four starts.
Lisronagh: Crimson Ark winning on his debut, battled well to see off the runner up. He is out of a three times winning mare which is a further boost to his CV. Rupert Wells had been third twice and is getting closer to opening his account. Mr Antolini was a close third on his debut here.
Rathmorrisey: Inchiquin Allstar is a thoroughly safe bet as he has been third and second twice before winning here. He showed an exceptional turn of foot here. Rockey Storm was running a big race before falling at the last when second and remounted but his finish position does not do the performance justice.
Maralin: The Sophster came into this maiden with placed form but she stepped up here to give an absolute exhibition of jumping and put her rivals to the sword from a long way out.
Rathmorrisey: Quill Street narrowly missed out here but for that reason remains a maiden after her very exciting debut. She jumped and travelled well and her ability was clearly displayed. Jumpandtravel does just that and yet again finished placed. She is an extremely game mare who was second three times and close up third here.
Rathmorrisey: Klassy is just that. Anyone looking for a fun Open horse to win plenty of races will have to look no further. He has won six points and second seven times and hardly ever runs a bad race. His jumping was electric here. He has been novice and lady ridden; won left and right handed and suits anyone looking for a decent Open Horse.
Maralin: Three Of A Kind made a very encouraging debut when finishing second in the last race. He is out of a point to point winning mare. Ser Sandor back in fourth is a beautiful big chasing type out of a Roselier mare and closely related to plenty of winners.
Borris: Golden Investment won the final race with fifteen runners and could not have been any more impressive. He is a very useful sort who has been given time to mature and looks a very smart type. All Fired Up was a very reliable second and met a decent winner.
Liscarroll: Hit The Highway was second at Borris in a decent contest on his debut in December and stepped up to win here. A comfortable six lengths victor on only his second career start suggests he is a class above maiden point to point and can compete at a much higher level.
Lisronagh: Ringrone Castle was second at Dungarvan but stepped up to win here. Hinxworth ran very well on debut and stepped up further here. He is a half-brother to Join Together so all the signs are positive for him.
Rathmorrisey: What Happens Now looks a very much above average winners horse. He had won a maiden at the end of last season and very nearly won a winners at Cragmore but stepped up to win here in a decent looking race.
