Jamie Codd lines the punters pocket

By Dan Walsh at Bettyville Park

It was refreshing to be amongst the restricted attendance under Covid-19 guidelines allowed at a fine Bettyville Park this evening where punters had to wait until the final event on the seven-race card for Jamie Codd to bring home a local winner.

Codd was well supported on the Gavin Cromwell trained Malina Girl (2/1) who stuck to her task in the bumper and ran out an impressive winner by one and three-quarter lengths on ground officially described as ‘good’.

It was a good meeting for Waterford trainer Henry de Bromhead who recorded a double – Urabamba (8/13 fav.) ridden by Hugh Morgan in the Welcome to Wexford Maiden Hurdle and Eagle Moon (4/1) with Dylan Robinson by two and a half lengths in the handicap chase.

Jockey Morgan had a double up in the first two races. He was also aboard Good World (6/1) in the Holiday in Wexford Handicap Hurdle for Mooncoin trainer Eoin Doyle. Paul Nolan went closest of the Wexford trainers here with Glen Robin (Brian Cooper) coming in half a length behind Good World and Nolan also saddled the third placed Cloak of Darkness (Sean O’Keeffe).

And Joseph O’Brien shook the punters with a 28/1 victory – Filon D’Oudairies with Simon Torrens up in the Adare Manor Opportunity Handicap Chase.  

The Tote aggregate was €82,840.25 compared with €98,671.00 last year.
