Exciting finish ahead for the Spring Cup

By Robert Fenton

A cracking finale to the open class Stix & Stones Spring Cup awaits at Drumbo Park tonight.

And Hillsborough trainer Ronnie McKeown holds the strongest double hand in the race courtesy of his semi-final winners Catherines Drico and Boley Lass, both of whom clocked a very fast 28.49 secs for the 525-yard trip.

Slaney's Marting Laney also has two runners and bids for the £1,500 winner's prize with Meadowvale Thril and Swift Cabernet.

The one-two could be going down Hillsborough way but in which order?

Preference is for Catherines as he should lead early and being in front is half the battle.

However, if he dwells or if Boley can stay within three lengths of him to the penultimate bend, then she will beat him home.
