Rock On Fruity tastes sweet victory at Kilbeggan

Rock On Fruity (far side) comes with his challenge

Rock On Fruity's success in the Like Kilbeggan On Facebook Handicap Chase completed doubles for Charles Byrnes and Donal McInerney.

Tearaway leader Shamiran had his advantage eroded by the time they got to the penultimate obstacle, but still jumped it disputing it with Some Drama and Net D'Ecosse.

However, McInerney had them in his sights on Rock On Fruity (8-1), who picked off Net D'Ecosse after the last and scored by five and a half lengths.

Byrnes said: "He'll tip away in those type of races. Maybe the Munster National might be an option if he creeps into it.

"It's hard to get into those races. We'll look at anything he gets into off 11 stone or lower because he wouldn't be a horse to carry a big weight.

"It's a good night's work so it's great."

Rosie Alice landed a gamble under McInerney in the Midland Breeders Supporting Kilbeggan Beginners Chase.

Byrnes' 5-2 favourite raced in third for much of the race and was still on the bridle when taking it up at the last, en route to a two-and-three-quarter-length defeat of Penny Jane.

Jaime Sommers gained just reward for her consistency by turning the Adare Manor Opportunity Handicap Hurdle into a procession.

Cathal Landers was content to watch on from the rear on the Michael Bowe-trained 7-1 shot, who had finished second on her previous three outings.

She made effortless headway in the blink of an eye to hit the front after two out and Landers was able to ease her down considerably, yet still beat Sir Abbot by a length and three-quarters.

Owner John Bowe said: " Cathal rode a great race. He was last most of the way and she loves passing horses. She jumps superbly and I'm delighted with that. It's great for Cathal and great for the pedigree as well.

"We'll see what the handicapper does now. There is a race in Navan that used to be called the Albany Hurdle at the end of the month over two-mile-six, and she stays well.

"That's an option for her and there is also a Listed race in Gowran at the end of September. It would be great to get a bit of black type for her.

"She's the first winner out of Solerina and she's the last filly out of her so she's very important."

Philip and Luke Dempsey combined to take the Denis & Eithne Coyne Memorial Race Handicap Hurdle with Kilkeaskins First.

The 7-1 chance was always at the head of affairs and looked to have matters sewn up a long way out, eventually coming home nine lengths ahead of Sierra Law.

The Brassmoulder (3-1) made it second-time lucky in the Summer Party Pack Discount Group Booking Opportunity Maiden Hurdle, finding more than favourite Chateauneuf Du Pap after the last to score by a neck.

Sharps Choice (11-4) finally put it all together in the Pat Doyle Memorial Maiden Hurdle, while Peacocks Secret (6-1) took the September 8th Celebration Race Meeting (Pro/Am) Flat Race.
