Report | Turtulla 08th March 2020

James Hannon brought his tally for the season to eight, courtesy of a Turtulla double which began in the Susan Long four-year-old mares’ maiden aboard the Ian Power-trained Boher Cailin.

Owned and bred by Martin Keating who owns Keating Horse Transport, the debutant was settled in mid-division throughout, before taking closer order from the third-last fence.

The daughter of Mahler then kept on very well from the back of the last, to secure a three-length victory over the Denis Murphy-trained Barden Bella.

"She is a home-bred mare, her owner Martin Keating bred her. We fancied her coming here today. I will talk to Martin now and see what we will do," said Power.

Hannon completed his double in the Tattersalls Ireland, Hotel Minella and Barne Accessories Ltd five-year-old and upwards geldings' maiden aboard the Patrick Neville-trained Maccloud.

The well-bred son of Cloudings showed a tough attitude in the closing stages in the colours of her handler to fend off the David O'Brien-trained Bourbon Street by two lengths.

“We are delighted with that, he is a lovely horse. I bred him myself, his mother was a very good mare, probably the best I ever had. She is a black-type mare, she’s a very good mare. I’ll try and get him into the sales next week if I can," said Neville.

Ellen Doyle has posted an excellent record in four-year-old contests this season, and she added to this tally once again when she took the Meadowview Stables-sponsored four-year-old geldings' maiden with Hollow Games.

In the hands of John O'Neill, the son of Beat Hollow powered clear from the penultimate fence to win by a distance on his debut over the Colin Bowe-trained Tim Pat.

“We thought a lot of him coming here today and he did everything right there. Hopefully he will turn out well tomorrow, and hopefully he will then be sales bound after that," said Doyle.

The local event of the afternoon was the David Harry Kelly-sponsored five-year-old and upwards' confined maiden, which saw the Andy Slattery-trained Mongol Emperor come out on top for owner Eithne Thompson.

Eoin O'Brien set a good gallop aboard the son of Imperial Monarch, and he remained unchallenged in the closing stages, to keep his stable companion, Dr Shirocco, at bay by 15 lengths.

“That was great, we will probably go for a winners’ race with him now. He is owned and bred by the Thompson’s and they are from Limerick," said Slattery.

No Fame No Game took the Shanaville Stables and Maharla Stables five-year-old and upwards mares' maiden for novice riders in the hands of Ben Harvey.

Prominent throughout, the daughter of Fame And Glory was left clear at the last following the exit of Cappajune Lady, before securing an eight-length victory over the Jason O'Reilly-trained Getawayrooney.

“She had a great run in Aghabullogue. When she hit the front, she idled. I’d say we will look at the point-to-point bumper in Mallow over Easter," said Kelleher.

The admirable 11-year-old Awesome Lady has hit top from of late and she doubled her tally with success in the Equine Warehouse, Monbeg Stables and Dalton Transport mares' winner-of-one.

Ridden by her handler Paul Power, the Ger Langan-owned daughter of Portrait Gallery prevailed by a neck in what was a nail-biting finish, fending off the Ivan Walker-trained Drumderry Ask by a neck.

“She was only broken at seven and it took about 18 months to get a passport for her, because the mare was never registered. It’s worked out anyway," said Power.
