McGarvey has the Code for West again
Frank Berry and Jody McGarvey
The other man that has registered a victory on the Great Palm gelding is Tony McCoy, that being at the Listowel Festival in 2011.
On this occasion, McGarvey came there from off the pace, travelling-well on the seven-year-old equipped with cheek-pieces, in the straight.
The successful 9/1 shot took over from the front-running Rubert two out. On the run-in Christy Roche's charge kept going well enough to account for the staying-on Hans Cresent by a length and three parts.
On behalf of winning owner, J P McManus, Frank Berry said: "He'll go for another one of those and it's nice to win another race with him." (TW & EM)
Racegoers at Clonmel barely had their breath back after Sizing Europe's demolition of his feature race rivals. Half-an-hour on Ruby Walsh brought up a double (earlier a winner on Quietly Fancied) when Tarla ran out a most impressive winner on her chasing bow in the Grade 3 EBF T.A. Morris Memorial Mares Chase.
