For the first time in a few years there will be a real Anglo-Irish flavour to the Racing Post International at Dundalk Stadium this evening.

Paul Young's Bubbly Bluebird heads the betting and he will race in the red jacket. If he can lead to the bend, he would have a major chance but personal choice is for Pat Guilfoyle's Good News, a son of Definate Opinion which won this race in successive years, 2010 and '11. Good News will run from trap four and major support on the night is predicted for this dog which should be right at home over the Dundalk circuit.

Strong cases can be made for the home runners, Droopys Wilbury and Jaytee Jet, while the other UK runners Droopys Acrobat and Murrays Act will need slick starts.
