All Class wins off the subs bench

Getting into a race appears to be more challenging than actually winning a race as far as the David Dunne-trained All Class is concerned.

For the second time All Class got into 45-70 handicap as a first reserve and duly made it two-in-a-row after winning at Navan in March when getting in also as first reserve.

Dunne once again had Nathan Crosse on board the six-year-old in the concluding mile and six handicap and the duo duly obliged.

All Class had landed a major gamble over a furlong less at Navan in March and today was sent off 9/4 favourite and won by over two lengths.

The filly, which is owned by the trainer's uncle, had her first run for the Curraha-based trainer when falling in a Tramore hurdle before Christmas and since then had run on the flat at Dundalk without making any impression.

Now, with two wins in-a-row, All Class will be bidding for a hat-trick of victories on the next outing.

The filly is entered in two hurdle races at Downpatrick on Friday, but is unlikely to get into either race.
