I'll never get the Friday night Limerick tips done if I keep stopping like this but the AJMT Syndicate's Rinwood Pearl (Droopys Cain/Rinwood Niamh) surely merits this interruption.
The Des Flaherty trained bitch, defeated on debut, has been a sprint sensation at Galway as the June 2015 whelp subsequently notched up an unbeaten sequence of six wins while climbing through the grades in the west.
Successful in her S2 350 Yard final last time, she now switches to LMK for an S1 appearance in chase of a seventh victory on the spin. It would be a brilliant achievement is she could complete the feat on her Limerick debut but victory will not come easy for among her rivals on Friday will be the brilliant Treaty Cup Sprint winner Factotem Boy in a mouth-watering contest.
The wonderful 2014 Sporting Press Irish Oaks winner, Velvet All Jam, will see her first pup begin a racing career when Velvet Ruby (by Kinloch Brae) makes her debut on Friday evening at Limerick Greyhound Stadium.
Retired after that wonderful 2014 final display when defeating Always With Me by three quarters of a length while posting 28.42 in a thriller, the brilliant "Bitch Of The Year" award winner sees the first of five pups by Kinloch Brae (2d, 3b) contest in A7 company over 525 yards. A litter which is certain to draw much attention, Velvet All Jam looks to have solid claims to begin her breeding career with a winner!
