The team have a busy weekend ahead with runners at Shelbourne, Cork, Clonmel and Limerick, where we provide two of the runners of the highlight of the card, the prestigious Con and Annie Kirby Memorial Final.
Blue East and Slippy Cian both line up in the Con and Annie Kirby Memorial Final on merit although both face far from ideal trap draws here. They’re both hugely talented youngsters and it would be no surprise to see them upset the odds. On the undercard, Ballinakil Clare looks to continue her superb form and land the quickPARK.ie Limerick Oaks Final. Impressive winner of both the opening round and Semi Final, another slick break will see her in with a big chance. We’re double handed in the Sean O Connor Cup Final where Riverside Tiger and Clonbrien Prince line up in a very tight affair. Also on the card we have Drive On Tipp contesting the Folyns Electricial Open 575, Droopys Cabaye in the Pool Ireland A1 525 before closing out the evening, Totos Park goes in the Netcore Solutions Ltd Open 600.
We have another team travelling to Shelbourne where the Rural Aloha lines up in the feature race here, The Healthcare & Transport Services Oaks Final. Although beaten in the last two rounds we think she has a very good chance in final from the outside; there is a big run to come from her. Beaming Paradise set the standards in the opening round of the Gain Greyhound Nutriton Open 600 and lines up alongside both Ballyhale Blaze and Macaroon Cruz in the second Semi Final. It’s a huge ask to get all three through safely here but that’s the target. Greenhill Charm lines up in The Lawrence Finnegan Memorial A1 525, Sidarian Fern will take her place in the The Suncroft Ladies Football Team A1 525 before Lughill Ivy will look to send us home happy in the last, The BoyleSports”Getting Out” Mini Open 525.
We’ve four runners heading to Curraheen Park and Slippery Thelma will be looking to follow up her Shelbourne success last week when she contests the The Reardens 525. There’s some brilliant sponsorship by Larry O’Rourke as The €25,000 Riverside Oscar Open 525 gets underway on the evening. Nitro Notorious will line up in Heat 4 before we have a double in Heat 6 with Kilmessan Gold and Fantasy Joey opposing each other in amongst some top trackers.
Finally, over to Clonmel on Sunday where we have another seven runners. Pearls Product will be looking to land her first race victory in the Kasko Kennel Krunch For Greyhounds before Macaroon Towser will look build on last week’s success when he goes in the Upcoming Sweepstakes Sprint. Bourbon Maestro will contest a nice little stake when he looks to land the The Pre-Produce Stakes A2 Puppy Stake Final. Slippery Robin lines up in the Marley Country Crunch For Retired Greyhounds, before the impressive Semi Final winners last week, Nice Charmer and Cookie Sky take their well earned place in the Pre-Produce Stakes A1 / A2 Puppy Stake Final. The night, and a busy weekend, comes to a close with Fahreneight Daz in the last race, The Sporting Press ‘Slan Abhaile’ A1 /A2 525.
Best of luck to all runners this weekend!
