Low-lying sun was causing problems at the Meath point-to-point held at Fairyhouse, but it did not stop the Wexford raiders who left a trail of success. Three winners for Jamie Codd and a double for the Sean Doyle/Jamie Scallan combination were amongst the highlights.
Jamie Codd teamed up with Gordon Elliott to win the four-year-old geldings maiden by twelve lengths with Ginto getting the better of Since Day One in the Matchmaker Syndicate colours for handler/rider Rob James.
Codd made it a double on Passion View for Meath handler Peter Flood in the maiden race for five-year-old mares. Two lengths were the winning distance.
Codd’s treble was aboard the four lengths winner Fanamix, running in the colours of Edelle Logan and trained by Denis Murphy, The Ballagh.
Sean Doyle’s good run continued in the maiden race for five-year-old geldings when Dunboyne, in the Monbeg Partnership colours, came in first by three lengths ridden by Jamie Scallan, Tomhaggard, who was enjoying his 15th career winner.
But the Doyle/Scallan team were not finished yet. They completed a double when Solomon Grundy ran out three lengths to the good in the Open Race which was confined to novice riders.
Rob James was amongst the winners on the Donnchadh Doyle runner Crystal Glory, victorious on his debut at Monksgrange last month, four lengths to the good in the Winner of One Race.
