Greyhounds: Rocket set to fire at Dundalk.
British hopes will be high as Derby runner-up Tuesday Davy and Racing Post Select Stakes winner Jaspers Boy bid to extend the raiders' winning sequence to five. However, it will be no easy task and the vote goes to the Frances O'Donnell-trained Sineads Rocket to restore Irish pride in this great invitation contest.
Sineads Rocket's talent received a timely advertisement when his Waterford victim Eyeman clocked a flying 28.87sec in a Thursday night race. That, allied to Rocket's flying 29.08sec trial last weekend, suggests that the Killenaule machine is ready to step up to a higher plane.
Pa Fitzgerald is delighted with Tuesdays Davy following his 29.14sec trial last week but Jaspers Boy only flies in this morning and will take on this elite band without the benefit of a look at the track.
Cases can also be made for fast starting local Bare Island Boy and Champion Stakes runner-up Eleets Noir Boyy. However, early pace and Dundalk track are great bedfellows and Sineads Rocket can power his way to victory.
