    Reinsmen Jack Trainor and John O’Shea both drove doubles on Saturday at Club Menangle.

    Trainor wasted no time getting off the mark, driving the $3.60 favourite Eh Ef El to victory, to land the first leg of his double in the opening race for Shane and Lauren Tritton.

    Making the most of an inside draw, Eh Ef El sat patiently in behind the leader Bettor Bet Black for most of the race.

    Darren McCall took Don Boston to the lead at the end of the back straight and held a handy lead coming into the home straight.

    Trainor loomed up three wide with the son of Christian Cullen to forge ahead and win by 3.3 metres.

    Trainor had to wait until the penultimate race to grab his double with Mistercool Sea Eyre ($4.20) in the trotters’ race for trainer Blake Fitzpatrick.

    The five-year-old gelding maintained his consistent form, having either won or placed second in nine of his previous 10 starts.

    The widest runner coming off the final turn, Mistercool Sea Eyre was involved in a four-way battle in the final 50m, but put his nose in front and extended his lead to win by 2.4m.

    Meantime, O’Shea landed a big priced double, winning with Dillon ($16.70) for trainer Peter Rixon and Lockton Luck ($33.70) for Josh Turnbull.

    Dillon flew down the home straight from out wide to rein in the leaders and go on to win by 1.2m.

    O’Shea waited patiently with Lockton Luck before producing a burst of speed in the final 100m to claim his second winner of the meeting.

    Driver Luke McCarthy and trainer Craig Cross combined yet again to win the feature race, the Group Three Paul Fitzpatrick FFA with the talented Bling It On.

    The seven-year-old justified his $1.40 favourite status to win consecutive races at Club Menangle and claim his 44th victory from 79 starts.

    Bling It On led into the home turn and bolted in to win by a comfortable 9.2m margin.
