What Hall of Fame announcer Roger Huston had to say:
In the Vincent Delaney Memorial 2 year old filly pace a total of 9 were entered so it was straight to the final Sunday night for a purse of £17,600.
Maidsweet with Gavin Murdock from post 5 went right to the top to be followed by Tarawood Annie and Louisville.
Near the half Louisville with Gordon Gilvear stuck a head in front but couldn’t sustain the challenge as Maidsweet drew away.
Meanwhile towards the back of the pack Oakwood Lucy Lou with Rocker Laidler, after getting away seventh, worked the way forward to challenge three wide around the final turn making up serious ground on the leader.
The two fillies battled to the wire with Maidsweet prevailing by a neck in 2:04.8 with Always Skye and Vicky Gill finishing third.
Maidsweet is by Sweet Lou (USA) out of Maid Of The West. The filly is owned by Graham Byrne and trained and driven by Gavin Murdock.
