Roscrea syndicate score a Double double at Limerick

 

There was somewhat of a Roscrea invasion at Limerick Greyhound Stadium on Saturday and in what was a hugely successful night for Paul Brussels’s Ducking & Diving Syndicate, the wonderful Double Busy (Laughil Blake/Kilara Abbey) completed a brace of victories for trainer Tommy Fletcher which could so easily have been a treble!

It’s fair to say that Double Busy has had quite an interrupted campaign since rattling-off four quick victories last summer but returning from another short layoff in mid-June, he presented in fine form when scoring A3 525-yard victory in 29.12 and built impressively on that performance when right back to his best in the same grade on Saturday.

Breaking on terms from Trap 5, the September 2016 whelp displayed smart early pace to force his way to the lead on the run to the first bend and turning with a length advantage, he comfortably dictated to the back-straight when immediately stretching his lead to near three lengths. A strong runner at the minimum trip, the writing was on the wall for his rivals as Double Busy was never likely to cede ground from this point and he duly completed a dominant success with five and a quarter lengths to spare in 28.85.

He will now take a rise to A1 grade for his next outing but that level should hold no fears on this evidence.
