Showem silver shows in fairyhouse for owner NIna Carberry

Showem Silver and 
(Healy Racing Phot
Nina Carberry rode a winner in her own colours when Showem Silver powered clear in the closing stages to land the concluding bumper at Fairyhouse.

The Noel Meade-trained gelding was easy to back before racing, from 5/1 out to 9/1, but attracted some support on course and was returned 7/1.

Carberry produced the Winged Love gelding to lead at the two furlong pole and he pulled clear inside the final furlong for a four-and-a-half length success.

The Willie Mullins-trained newcomer Merry Night(8/11) was a warm order in the two-and-a-half mile contest but was caught for foot early in the straight before staying on into second.

The winner had finished mid-division on his sole previous outing in a Punchestown bumper in April.

He is out of a half-sister to Aran Concerto, and Nina bought him (for 15,000) at the Derby Sale last year. I think he is now for sale,said Meade.

He's  a nice horse who stays well, jumps well and loves soft ground. Its a long way for a four-year-old, and he should come on a bit.
