Duffy's double on a chilly night

There was the interesting spectacle of seeing just one hundredth of a second being the difference between the winners in the first three races on the card at a chilly Brandywell track on Monday night.

The opening contest saw Arrivederci Man clocking a decent 16.96 to get the action underway while Charles Ferguson’s Mark Street Mini won the second race, the Brandywell Sprint, in a time only a fractionally slower, in 16.97.
The Monday Night Sprint was the third race on the card and here Gary Simpson’s New Line Jet crossed the line in a time of 16.96 - the same as in the first race.
Next up was a 500 yard race with Corcass Skippy winning in 29 seconds for Brendan Duffy.
Indeed, there was a nice double for Duffy as Chas Book then obliged for him to take the honours in the seventh race, the Brandywell 500, in 28.09.

In between, Do It Boss took the honours in the sixth race over the 500 distance in 27.92.
A fine evening’s racing concluded with For Patrick clocking 17 seconds in the concluding sprint.
