Daveys Rionach steps up in style

By Robert Fenton

In-form Daveys Rionach is running at the top of her game and the blue bitch took the step up in grade in her stride with another effortless victory at Drumbo Park.

Belfast’s Sean McCafferty has her in great condition since coming back from her break, and the winning time of 30.13 was highly meritable and now takes her up to A1.

She steered a wide course, leading round from Tower Road and Nanny No, Daveys had enough in hand to beat Tower Road two lengths.

Ballyroyal Vic won a hard-fought contest for Dundonald trainer Margaret Campbell. He was just beaten into the turn by Conors Memphis and the pair battled it out down the far side until the third bend where Vic took control and stayed on well, beating Rylane Impact two lengths in a notable 29.05 secs.

Damian Maginn’s Downpatrick-based black bitch Tullymurry Susie is strong in the finish as she showed in taking an A1 525 contest. Despite taking a touch in the home straight, she finished with zest, coming on the outside of Wizzer Magee to win by three lengths in 29.19 secs.
