The Graham Holland trained Clonbrien Treaty won the opening semi-final heat on Saturday night, maintaining his unbeaten record in this year’s competition. Winner of the 2023 Con & Annie Kirby Memorial at the same track, this son of Pestana and Clonbrien Millie has been running superbly with a fast 29.43 recorded when winning his heat as the 6/4 favourite.

Ballinabola Una qualified two lengths back in second place for last year’s winning trainer Pat Buckley while Swords Rex was another half a length back in third place, giving trainer Graham Holland his second finalist.

Sober Glory won the second semi-final with this being his first heat win in the competition for trainer Karol Ramsbottom. This son of Droopys Sydney and Calzagne Jan won in a time of 29.40 with the Peter Cronin trained Mr Chelm a huge eight lengths back in second place while the Jack Kennelly trained Beepers Lariat grabbed third spot.
