A second round heat success was recorded by the Killaloe owned Redzar Ruinart on Saturday night.
The second round heats of the Cambridgeshire was the main focus of attention at the Limerick Track on Saturday night last. Redzer Ruinart doesn’t find herself in front at traprise on too many occasions but she came through the bars of five on Saturday night to sweep the opening bend and take a three length lead into the home straight first time around. Jaytee Japan, after a sluggish start, began to motor from the second turn on and this quickly became a two-dog affair as the duo developed a massive advantage over the chasing pack at the halfway point.
It was Redzar Ruinart owned by Killaloe’s Pat Reddan who maintained control however, and the daughter of Kinloch Brae and Redzer Ruby, a 4/1 market chance, got stronger as the race progressed to draw clear in the closing stages. Storming across the winning line, the clock was a blistering 41.55 as Jaytee Japan was seven and a half lengths back in second. Of the others, Tinnock Solis and Bling Bling Emma claimed the final two qualifying positions in third and fourth respectively.

From here the Joe Collins trained Varra Tilly stormed to the front to score easily by over five lengths from Da Green Machine in second. The time was a good 29.07 for the 4/1 market chance.
