First-Round Report

 

Newinn Yolo, Swift Hoffman and Lenson Sanchez all suffered first-round defeats but their army of supporters can all breathe a sigh of relief because they all safely progressed by finishing second.

It was a big night for the Irish with them taking four of the six first-round heats. Peter Cronin sent out Twnwald Rodney (28.98) and Twnwald Bish (29.52). Pat Buckley saw his Coolavanny Jap win (29.13) and Frazer Black got in on the act with Save The Don (29.16)

 

Steve Race flew the flag for England and La Cuchilla was impressive on the night, winning in 28.99 beating Newinn Yolo 0.75L. England scored again in the last heat with the Atkinson trained Kneejerkreaction who beat Swift Hoffman 0.5L in 29.16.
