A treble each for Bowe, O’Neill and James

Although Stradbally was cancelled due to “unfit ground conditions” two metings went ahead today at Ballindenisk in Cork and Loughrea in Galway and produced a treble each for handler Colin Bowe and riders Barry O’Neill and Rob James.
Colin Bowe achieved success at both meetings beginning with Hello Pilgrim in the Caesar Club by four lengths in the maiden race for five year old mares and followed up again at the Cork track half-an-hour later with Collingwood Court for Don Forster by six lengths in tghe maiden race for five and six year old geldings.
Both winners were partnered by Barry O’Neill who went on to score a treble on Kruzhlinin for Camilla Sharples and Gordon Elliott by three lengths in the Open Race.
Kruzhlinan was winning his 11th race of the season and won as late as yesterday at Loughanmore with Jamie Codd. And if all is right during the week will run again next weekend!
And before we leave Cork the final race of the day – the Winner of Two- resulted in a six lengths victory for the father and son, handler and rider, strong team of John and James Walsh from Preben, Tinahely. It was James Walsh’s 12th winner of the season, one better than his best ever score last year.
Bowe recorded a cross card treble when Golden Nomad won the Winner of Two race at Loughrea by three lengths to give Rob James a treble on the day.
James had earlier partnered two winners; Gunsight Ridge for Donnchadh Doyle by four lengths in the maiden race for four year olds and the Michael McNiff trained Atlantic Blaze by a neck in the mares maiden race beating Frank And Honest with Luke Murphy up.
Donnchadh Doyle completed a handlers’ double with Premier D’Troice in a close finish to the five and six year old geldings maiden race. This was a saddle success for Wicklow rider Brian Lawless from Delgany.
