Winning  Westmeath’s David Murray trainer produced a sparkling performanced for his charge Carrick Aldo. He was a trap to line victor in the Bar One Racing Irish Sprint Cup on Tuesday evening who literally sprinted away to land the €20,000 first prize.

The trap 5 hound claimed an early lead and kept up the gallop to win by two and three-quarter lengths from.It was also the fastest time, 20.80 A time not seen in the prestigious race in 20 years.
