Followers of greyhound racing had to settle for one night’s action at the weekend on account of Connacht’s clash with Leinster in the Guinness PRO14 Rainbow Cup on Saturday.

Spancilhill owned Mucknish Flyer took the spoils in the opening contest on Friday evening. Crafty Sorentino showed pace from the traps in the A4 Graded 525 Yards contest. At the opening bend, the lead was two lengths over Dromana Bobby in second place along the inner with Muckinish Flyer moving in to second spot as they entered the back straight.

Nearing the third bend Dromana Bobby moved through on the inner to take a narrow advantage as the Mary Ward owned Muckinish Flyer took closer order. Off the home bend Muckinish Flyer (Ballymac Vic-Brookeville Dash) came through to join issue and at the line proved a head too good for Dromana Bobby in 29.67.

Rathmeehan Blake owned by Ballyea duo John Collins and John Browne swept through to take victory in an S9 graded sprint contest making it two wins from two starts scoring by a length from Woodpark Beauty in 19.69.

Friday’s feature was the A2 graded 575 the yards eleventh contest. As the traps rose, the Michael Casey of Mullagh owned Mall Finn Junior was very smartly into his stride in the centre of the track and racing towards the opening bend the son of Rio Quattro and Paradise Maria led Standing Proud by over two lengths with Kilbannon Psycho in third place.

Racing down towards the halfway mark, the Martin Fahy trained Mall Finn Junior really stamped his authority on the contest as he extended his advantage to over four lengths and staying on powerfully he scored by six and a half lengths over Kilbannon Psycho in 31.50.
