GREYHOUNDS: IRISH VIEW: Prince set to wear the cr own in Dundalk.
THEGuinness Open 670 at Dundalk is Ireland's most valuable event of the year to date and the EUR15,000 prize tonight can be claimed by the Tony Byrne-trained Prince Monalulu.
This 670 distance at Dundalk really is the ultimate test of a greyhound. Dundalk boasts two massive straights and the run to the finishing line can appear virtually endless.
Owned by Dermot Sweeney, Prince Monalulu could have been specially designed for this track and distance. He can go up well but he really motors down the straights and sees out every yard strongly.
The son of Jamaican Hero and Droopys P rincess was most impressive in the semifinal last week and what really caught the eye was the way Prince Monalulu left them for dead from the last bend home.
He ran out a three length winner from Kid Ory and Ballerin Lass and should have their measure again tonight. The other semi was a much tighter affair with Guess Whos Comin arriving with a flying late run to grab a neck victory over Winetavern Vieri, with Coolavanny Kate just another length back in third.
Cases can be made for all six tonight, but Prince Monalulu has the look of a winner about him and he can prove too strong for Guess Whos Comin.
