Undeniable Alibi's remarkable transformation unfolds, piecing everything together


Undeniable Alibi, a former point-to-point champion, clinched his first professional victory on the track in the prestigious Derrygrath Maiden Hurdle held at the renowned Clonmel racecourse.

This exhilarating contest, spanning the minimum distance, witnessed the dominating presence of the 8/13 favourite, who surged forward to surpass Stickman with sheer determination, leaving less than two furlongs to go. As the finish line drew near, an intense duel unfolded between the two contenders, with Stickman valiantly fighting until the penultimate hurdle.

However, Undeniable Alibi faced a fresh challenge from the rapidly advancing Whatsyourproblem, who stealthily closed the gap. Guided by the skilled reinsmanship of jockey Jack Kennedy, Undeniable Alibi unleashed an extraordinary burst of speed, ultimately triumphing over Whatsyourproblem (7/2) by a margin of one length.

Notably, Stickman was relegated to a respectable third place, finishing two and three-quarter lengths behind the triumphant duo. In a post-race interview, Kennedy expressed his elation, acknowledging that while the horse's performance in previous races had been somewhat underwhelming, Undeniable Alibi truly shone on this momentous occasion. Kennedy further highlighted the untapped potential of the prodigious steed, calling attention to the imperative for continued growth and success in the future.
