Success for Midlands Trainers Continues As Jumps Season Picks up

Round up of winners during the week.

The Real Bandits Again Syndicate are enjoying a great run of success with Bridge Native and the nine-year-old was a winner again at Galway on Monday. Sent off a 7/1 shot, Dot Love’s charge won the 2m handicap hurdle by a comfortable two and a half lengths under Simon Torrens to record his fifth career success and his fourth of 2020.

At Punchestown the following afternoon, Rathowen trainer Adrian Murray won the 2m4f handicap hurdle with Gold Speed which is owned by Anthony McLoughlin, Sean Coyne and Conor McLoughlin. It was tight at the finish as the Sean Flanagan-ridden 11/1 chance held on by a diminishing nose from the Gavin Cromwell-trained Bread And Butter.

Birr, County Offaly trainer Philip Byrne won the 8f handicap at Galway on Tuesday with the four-year-old Out On Friday. Owned and bred by Tony Deegan, the 4/1 shot was ridden by Colin Keane and readily beat the Mick Mulvany-trained 9/4 favourite Ideal Pal by two and a quarter lengths.

Rory Cleary was among the winners at Limerick on Friday where the Shay Barry-trained Pak Army won the 11f handicap. Cleary got the 16/1 chance home by half from the Charles Byrnes-trained Advance Virgo.
