Clonmell all set for National festival

The 93rd National Coursing Meeting will commence at Powerstown Park, Clonmel this morning (11.0) and the action will continue over the weekend with the finals on Monday afternoon.

Huge crowds were pouring into Clonmel yesterday and the betting on the Classics has been extremely lively.

Latest word from BoyleSports, sponsors of the Derby, is that the Kevin Barry-trained duo of Outoftheshadow and Watchman are sharing the top of the market with the Owen McKenna-trained Part Exchange.

There has also been a huge move for the Pat Curtin-trained Roquefort Teddy and he has come into the 8-1 mark.

Outoftheshadow has been the talking dog right through the season but shrewd judges feel that his stamina might not last out the six trips upfield and instead the vote goes to Part Exchange to land the top prize for local owners Mary O'Connor and Una Creed.

The McKenna/O'Connor and Creed team are also well represented in the Horse & Jockey Oaks by Alonso Blonde but the one to follow here could be Silent Wonder which is trained by evergreen Kerry handler Moss O'Connor.

Silent Wonder is a litter sister to Silent Whisper which is a fancied contender in the Derby.

Owned by the Nolan family, Silent Wonder was hugely impressive when collecting her ticket at Glin and is as short as 4-1 with BoyleSports.

Silent Wonder came in season early in the campaign and didn't have a chance to appear again.

But O'Connor is a past master of having them right on the day and she can land the Oaks, possibly at the expense of Share The Dream.
