First time out Hidden Heroics won the four-year-old geldings maiden race for owner/handler Denis Murphy, The Ballagh, by two and a half lengths with Jamie Codd showing good form ahead of the Punchestown Festival this week. This was Denis Murphy’s 230th winner in his 15 years of training point-to-pointers.

Denis Murphy managed a double when Loughderg Rocco was best by 12 lengths in division one of the maiden race for five-year-old geldings. A double on the day for rider Luke Murphy.
