You ignore Liam Dowling at your peril. He wasn’t expected to win the final of the Fine Gael Novice 2 525 Sweepstake (winner, €1,100) at Tralee Track on Saturday night because his charge, Ballymac Sahara, was a 3/1 shot against three 2/1 joint favourites in Crossfield Wilma, Una Maachina and Sporting Shinny, but Ballymac Sahara left them all in the shade and in some style as well as she clocked a quite magnificent 28.32 (.20 fast) in winning by four and a half lengths from Sporting Shinny, which is owned and trained by Abbeyfeale’s Jerry Griffin.

Ballymac Sahara, a February ’21 daughter of Ballymac Bolger and Jaytee Sahara, did the business from trap 3. It was tight into the opening bend, but she just cleared it ahead of the Jack Kennelly-trained Una Maachina and that was that, as good as anyway.
