Creamery clicks in Cup

CREAMERY PARIS was a surprise, but deserved, winner of the all-aged Oisin Cup at Michelstown yesterday.

Having won opening course by three lengths against Gallant Daisy, she had her closest call in the quarter-final when she just held on to get the better of Ryecourt Rebecca. She then accounted for Only for Fun by a length and a half in a straight run to the escape.

In the decider Creamery Paris took control from the start against Dadser And Dave to take the opening score by six lengths.

The Derby Trial Stake was won in good style by Ballinaveala Soho who led all the way to the escape after his opponent, Squeaky Head, had changed sides in the run up, for a five lengths success.

The Oaks ticket was collected by Uptown Dilemma. In the final she faced Thanks Seanie and led all the way to the escape for a four lengths success. The winner is a litter sister of Dixie Darling, who won the Oaks Trial Stake at Charleville on Sunday.
