Report | Tinahely 23rd February 2020

Jamie Codd recorded his 950th winner on Sunday as part of a Tinahely double, with both winners coming courtesy of horses trained by Co. Wexford handler Denis Murphy.

The first leg coming with the debutant son of Jet Away, Bring The Action, who took the Gaelic Plant Hire four-year-old maiden, securing a two-length victory over Simple Rules.

"His work at home was good. Obviously, his work came through today, he could be a grand horse, and there’s miles of improvement in him. Hopefully he’ll go to the Cheltenham sale now," said Murphy.

It wasn't long before Murphy's other newcomer, Tucson Train, took the Specialist Cars and Hunters Anon Syndicate and Ballyorney Veterinary Clinic five-year-old geldings' maiden.

Once again carrying the colours of Denis Murphy, the son of Scorpion secured a one and a half-length victory over the Colin Bowe-trained Sunset West.

“His work has been unbelievable. He’s a nice horse and I presume he’ll go to the sale’s now," said Murphy.

Barry O'Neill also secured a double on the card, bringing his tally to six winners for the weekend, initially teaming up with Colin Bowe to take the Fitzpatrick Gallagher McEvoy Solicitors winner-of-two, aboard Ballymorris Rose.

In the colours of John Asple, the daughter of Getaway had finished second to Beatthebullet last month, but she reversed that form on Sunday afternoon, fending off Denis Murphy's charge by three and a half lengths.

“She’s owned and bred by Anna and John Asple, they had Askanna with me. She’ll have a summer campaign on the track now,” said Bowe.

O'Neill completed his winning weekend when the Shay Slevin-trained son of Sandmason, Locallink came out on top in the Kent Carty Solicitors and Frank & Martin O'Donnell six-year-old and upwards geldings' maiden.

In the colours of Elizabeth Slevin, the full-brother of Summerville Boy secured a one and a half-length success over the Patrick Farrell-trained General Ryan.

"He’s a fair horse, we think the world of him. We’ll sell him now or go back for a winners race now," said Slevin.

It was a day to remember for Gowran-native Dan Nevin, who recorded his first winner to date, when teaming up with Philip Rothwell to take the John R Fitzpatrick Agricultural Contractor five-year-old and upward mares' maiden with their daughter of Black Sam Bellamy, Lawlor's Choice.

Owned by Rothwell’s farrier, Tom Power, along with Annette Lawlor, the six-year-old secured a half-length success over the Michael Murphy-trained Honest Opinion.

“She was unlucky here the last day. I owe everything to Phillip Rothwell and Annette Lawlor who do most of the work, this is sort of a hobby. It’s Dan Nevin’s first winner and he does a lot of work for me so I’m delighted for him," said Power.

Ben Harvey brought his tally to six for the season, when he teamed up with David Christie to take the John Durkan Memorial open for novice riders aboard the admirable 12-year-old Eddie's Miracle.

The veteran son of Beat Of Drums secured a four-length success over the Michael Murphy-trained Better B Quick in second.

"That’s his fourth win this season, but it’s got to the stage where I don’t think any of us enjoy watching him anymore, he takes over, I get so nervous about him. He’s in great form, he has a good turn of foot. We’ll just keep ticking away, and maybe look at a hunters chase later on because he hates this ground," said Christie.
