GRAIGUES CAN LAND THURLES FEATURE

Peter Farrell

With the final of the Centenary Agri Tipperary Cup coming to a close last week at Thurles Park, there will be more silverware up for grabs tonight as the final of the €1,600 to the winner ‘Centenary Feed & Grain A2 570’ reaches its conclusion.

Kindly sponsored by Centenary Co-op, the 570 event has been very well received and tonight’s finale promises to be an epic clash. Graigue Retalick went just under three lengths off the Thurles track record in last week’s semi final and he looks a greyhound whose stock is very much on the rise. Owned by Jim Morrissey, ‘Retalick’ has just the five starts to date and has already ran out the victor on three of those occasions. Well housed in five, the son of Droopys Nidge will require another fast start early on but if getting loose, he will be extremely hard to reel in.

PLENTY OF THREATS

Not a million miles away on the clock is Piercestown Eske in the stripes. Having dipped under the 31 second mark on each round thus far, the Mark O’Donovan trained brindle is very consistent on the clock and will have plenty of support come 9.30 this evening. A slight concern however for Piercestown Eske is his draw in six. The latter certainly moved inwards at trap-rise last week and a similar route tonight could cause issues for both himself and the aforementioned Graigue Retalick in five. Of the others, Kilgraney Island makes the most appeal for trainer Thomas Buggy. This greyhound doesn’t win too often but he could be a likely leader and if doing so, is expected to run a big race from trap four. TarsnaDettori is unbeaten in the stake and boasts a 50% strike-rate from just the eight starts. Well housed in white, he is another who demands much respect. Exchange Snapperand Town Mouse make up the field and both require improvement in order to enter calculations.
