FOLLOWING on from Farmacaffley, where four of the six winners were trained in Northern Ireland, only one race at Tyrella last Saturday fell to a southern raider with the new name of John McNally featuring as one of the successful handlers.

Based in Co Armagh, McNally employed the services of Neil Gault to ride both his runners on Saturday, the newcomer Deo Bellante who finished fourth to the David Christie-trained Cream Sparkles in the mares’ maiden, and the 2013 grey Curtain Time gelding Nabraska who landed the concluding six-year-old and upwards maiden by a length on his second start.
