Colin Bowe brings career total wins to 299

COLIN BOWE has his horses in winning form.

Colin Bowe brought his career total of wins as a handler to 299 when Cool Dove and Barry O’Neill had two and a half lengths to spare in the maiden race for five year old mares at Cragmore, Co. Limerick today.
Owned by Maurice Mariga from Youghal, Cool Dove was having her first run and put in a fine jump at the last to record a fine performance.
But the champion handler from Kiltealy will have to wait until next weekend, at least, to hit the magic 300 mark after two frustrating runner-up spots.
Bowe’s Premiumaccess (Barry O’Neill) was eight lengths adrift of Wide Receiver, trained at Ballypreacus, Bunclody, by Cormac Farrell for Edgar Allen in the four year old maiden race. Simon Cavanagh was in the saddle.
Barry O’Neill made it a double success in the maiden race for five year old geldings with a one length victory on Offtheshoulder running for the first time in the colours of the Monbeg Partnership for the Ballindaggin trainer Sean Doyle.
Sean’s brother Donnchadh Doyle was in the winners’ enclosure at Tallow as Deploy The Getaway won the maiden race for four year olds by twenty lengths with Tinahely rider James Walsh in the saddle.
There was a second Wexford success at the west Waterford course when home-bred Casey Jem, running in the colours of James Casey, Gorey, and trained at Ballinapark, Bunclody, sailed home by ‘a distance’ under Luke Murphy in the maiden race for five year old geldings.
And to complete a successful day for the Wexford raiders Mytermsoryours was the three lengths winner of the ‘older’ maidens race at Oldtown in Meath for Jamie Codd.
Owned and trained by Denis Murphy, Ballyboy Stables, The Ballagh, his delighted trainer will be aiming at a winners’ race for Mytermsoryours on his next outing.
