SUPERIOR TYSON (Superior Product-Sliabh Bui Turbo) put up a fine staying performance at Curraheen Park on Saturday night.

The Tracey Fitzpatrick, Wexford owned 5/4 favourite destroying the opposition in an A2/3 750 in a smart 42.12. Having his first look at the circuit he jumped out in front from traps and then drew further and further clear eventually crossing the line with twelve and a half lengths to spare over Blitz Son.

Droopys Hamish trained by John Linehan for The Kieran Ryan Syndicate, Dublin Hill did likewise in an open 750 stopping the clock in a slower time of 42.38. 

Out and gone from trap two the red hot 2/5 favourite never saw another runner eventually coming home with six lengths to spare over Ashgrove Classic, who for a moment looked a threat going to the third bend.

Fastest time for the standard 525 came in the top grade of the night, an A1, when Any Vision owned by Ted McCarthy, Donoughmore ran out a surprise 4/1 winner in 28.87. 

The favourite Witches San Jose looked all over a winner when she took over at halfway but she faded tamely out of contention leaving the always prominent Any Vision through for a two and a half length victory over Wagga Sport.

The only other winner to dip under the twenty nine second barrier was Courthouse Jim who took the last in 28.91. 

Handled by Gene Fitzgerald for The Cabbage House Syndicate, Newmarket he slipped through on the rails between the opening two bends and then made the rest coming home with three lengths to spare over the early leader Ladys Crest.

The coursing bred Knockrour Ace owned by John Lynch & Grace Murray, Aghabullogue made a fine debut when taking the fourth, an A4/5, in a smart 29.01. 

Coming on the card with two fine qualifying trials to his credit the 3/1 shot’s sectionals of 3.32 & 16.28 ensured him his place at the head of the field throughout and he came home with four and a half lengths to spare over Mucky Seasca.

Five year old Lahana Gold owned by Chris & Clara Walsh, Dunmanway showed he retains a lot of his old sparkle by taking the sixth race, an S1/2, in 17.96 which brought his career record to seventeen wins. 

Shaking off the close challenge of Spur Big Man as they hit the home straight he then lengthened clear to score by two lengths from Cooly Prairie.

No Better Boy owned by Susan Delaney, Ballincollig was another to make a winning debut when taking the second in 29.15. Taking up the running on the rail at halfway he then drew clear to score by six and a half lengths from the reserve Glenbowen Ruby.
