First couple starts this campaign IRISH KISSES ran into the placings both times on heavy tracks.
And third up was faced with another heavy track at Hawkesbury but the Shamus Award mare once again lapped up the conditions.
A small field can sometimes be tricky however she jumped brilliantly to lead and heading into the straight Kerrin McEvoy shook the reins, and she kept kicking to score by three quarters of a length.
Congratulations to all involved
