Indications are that no one is going to get anything easy after this Codd treble up North.


With all eyes on Aintree Wexford man Jamie Codd didn’t let the Liverpool spectacle intrude on his day when he rode a nice treble at Toomebridge at the Mid Antrim Hunt meeting.

He shot off a quick double in the first two races for fellow Wexford man Denis Murphy, when taking the 4 year old maiden on Corner Creek.

This son of Presenting is owned by Maria Byrne and is likely to be sold on after this winning debut. Codd and Murphy have struck a bit of form in this category and their runners should be kept in mind.

Codd and Murphy then took the 5 year old geldings maiden with the Blueprint horse, Winter Walk, which has had some nice placed form to his name already this season. With Pat Coffey listed as the owner most of these horses are traded on and this one wont be the exception from what I can see.

With Co Wicklow based trainer Philip Rothwell sending a team of runners to the meeting he managed to set up Codd for his treble on Flight Line in the Mares Maiden.

This Flying Legend 5 year old had run well at Maralin last time out and Codd won here in Rothwell’s own colours.

Rothwell doubled up in the last contest when Barry O’Neill got the leg up on According To Dan in the Older Geldings Maiden with the 9 year old Accordion horse finally winning for his owner trainer.

Codds major challenger for the jockeys championship Derek O’Connor didn’t go home empty handed as he teamed up with Colin McKeever and Wilson Dennison to win with the Kayf Tara 5 year old Ballycamp.

The only other winner on the day saw the 13 year old veteran Send For Paddy take the Open under Mark O’Hare.

With racing all over the country tomorrow Codds treble is a market that no one is going to get anything easy wherever they turn up!
