Roseville Chloe in a hurry
The final of the Paddy Sharkey, Track Bookmaker, A5 event showcased a ten race card last Saturday night. Zoos Saxobeat was despatched as the red hot 4/6 favourite but she lost ground with a slow exit from trap one and was then involved in first and third bend crowding. There were no such problems for the Alan Weldon-owned Roseville Chloe (Droopys Vieri-Lady Bluebell) this 3/1 chance dashing into a first bend lead. High Daddy showed plenty of back stretch pace but ran out of racing room over the final two bends. Meanwhile there was no catching a strong running Roseville Chloe who went on to capture the 1,000 Euro first prize by two lengths from High Daddy in 28.99.

Once in a blue moon. As rare as hen's teeth. A Government success. Each of those three sentences are as unusual and as rare as each other. But the last one seems to be about to take place. The Government has announced that it plans to give each child in the State a second year of free pre-school. It might not sound like earth shattering news but if it does happen then it could be one of the most significant things that this Government has done since it took office. Any money that is given over to education is a …
