GALE At Sea (1/1 – 9/4) took the opening contest of the 2019/20 point-to-point season when recording a comprehensive six length success in the four-year-old mares’ maiden, providing the Denis Murphy/Jamie Codd combination with the opening leg of a double on the afternoon.

A half-sister to the prolific Ballybolley, the debutant raced up with the pace, before staying on gamely to see off the attentions of Whiskey Lullaby.
