Kenneth Graham claimed the opening round of the TRM/Horseware Premier Series at the Horseware Louth County Show.
Tom Holden built a strong track for the opening round in the Series that saw 10 combinations from the 39 starters go through to the second round.
Donegal based Graham steered the William Lapsley owned gelding by the sire Limmerick to victory with a double clear and takes the early lead in the series at the annual curtain raiser at the Horseware Louth County Show.
The next round of the Premier Series now takes place at the Mullingar International Show at the June Bank Holiday weekend while the second and third legs of the TRM/Horseware National Grand Prix League take centre stage at Coilog next Saturday and the Thomastown Show on Sunday.
