There was a familiar tone to last night’s Galway card as Coolemount Boss yet again proved his superiority as he recorded his fourth win on the spin.

After a scintillating 28.76 performance last time out, Coolemount Boss was bidding to extend a hugely impressive start to his racing career which has seen him claim six of his ten outings prior to last night. Under the care of Michael Rafferty, you could set your watch by the son of Iso Octane - Coolemount Bally at trap-rise and he was yet again inch perfect in breaking well from trap four to show his now customary early dash into the opening corner. Despite this A1 contest figuring some of the best Galway has to offer, the chasing pack made little inroads into the lead down the back straight as Coolemount Boss galloped into a healthy lead and it was clear from a long way out that there was only going to be one winner. Rounding the final turn, Coolemount Boss was finishing just as well as he started and he motored all the way to the winning line to record a four and a half length win from Kilcormack Sky in second. The time was another fast 28.78. Indeed, the Four-Culchies syndicate must be on cloud nine with this greyhound and surely he will have another crack at Shelbourne Park sooner rather than later given his current form.


The Jack Hogan owned Hut Pool ran out a most impressive winner of race seven as he dominated from the start to record a very convincing victory. Flashing from trap two, Hut Pool showed brilliant early speed as he drew clear throughout to record a nine length victory over Lakeside Model in second. Trained by Pat Hogan, the son of Ballymac Vic - Ardera Beth clocked a fast 19.07.

Mike and Deborah Carrick notched a fine winner in race eleven as Domain Joe proved a class above in what was an A7 525. Popping out in front from trap four, Domain Joe showed a nice turn of early pace to establish a two length lead early on. However, the strong running son of Domain King - Lahard Frankie got stronger as the race progressed and he drew clear in the closing stages to cross the line six and a half lengths clear of Peteles Duchess in second. The time was a good 29.18.

Remarkable Lady was chasing a fourth career win heading into the final race of the session last night and she duly obliged for owner Martin Ryan. Holding a narrow advantage at traprise, Remarkable Lady defended the rails from trap two in the early exchanges to take a two length lead into the back. The lead soon doubled down the back straight and the daughter of Laughil Blake - Newquay Delight maintained this strong gallop as she stormed to a four length win over Brickhill Daisy in second. The time was 29.13.
