Rivals will sit up and Lisson after Fitzsimmons' Drumbo four-timer

By Robert Fenton

Stoneyford owner-trainer Frankie Fitzsimmons had four winners from four runners, making him a four-star turn at Drumbo Park.

Two sets of brothers and sisters did the business. First up were the litter pair Lisson Bullit and Lisson Turbo, followed with an end-of-night double courtesy of Lisson Legend and Lisson Dawn.

Bullit fired in with a five-length victory in a low grade sprint in 18.27 seconds, before Turbo, also in a sprint (S6), got up for a short-head decision in 18.62 seconds.

The hat-trick came in the penultimate race (S4) with Legend a comfortable five-length winner in 18.26 seconds.

It was Dawn who produced the best performance of the quartet to clinch Friday's four-timer. Slow away from trap one, she weaved her way through to beat Melodic Air by a head in 29.28 seconds.

On Saturday, Supa Rigel, who is trained by Dungannon's Roy Ruddy, lived up to all expectations with a top performance in 28.98 seconds, beating nearest challenger Bye Bye Jane by three and a half lengths.

He is a likely candidate for the forthcoming Puppy Cup.
