Local horse Granville Street cheered home at Kilbeggan

Written by Mark Nunan

The locally-trained Granville Street, first and second in two Flat outings at the Galway festival, went in at the first time of asking over jumps in the Adare Manor Opportunity Maiden Hurdle.

Having tracked the leaders, the 4/1 chance was kicked a few lengths clear approaching the last by Eoin Walsh but was all out to hold on by a head from Iriskana

Ciaran Murphy trains the five-year-old for the Street Wise Syndicate.

“There is plenty of improvement jumping-wise but he's a nice horse and he was gutsy from the back of the last,” said Walsh.

“They went a good solid gallop and I probably got there a fraction soon but the horse in front stopped. My lad stays well to be fair.

“Hopefully he'll step up now and go forward.”
