The popular weekly 'Greyhound View' programme will be returning to the screens for a lengthy run this year.
The first programme will go out on TG4 on Tuesday, April 17, and will feature the final of the Easter Cup from Shelbourne Park.
The series will run for 33 weeks, concluding on Tuesday, November 27, with a look at the final of the Kerry Agribusiness Irish St Leger at Limerick.
It is hoped that one of the initial programmes will carry a review of the top finals run so far this season -- and one of these could be the Irish Cesarewitch final in Mullingar on Saturday.
The Mullingar card will consist of five other graded finals plus four open contests and should draw a crowd of record proportions.
Favourite to capture the top prize of €8,000 will be Dynamic Trend, owned by Helen Whelan from Portlaoise. This is a really consistent bitch, which boasts a career record of six wins from 11 outings.
The daughter of Droopys Scolari has been particularly impressive in her last two victories. Last Saturday, she clocked a best of the competition 33.15 when finishing in typically strong fashion to beat Incitatus by four lengths.
The Whelan kennel has a second string in the form of Smart Fantasy, a daughter of Premier Fantasy and not exactly a no-hoper either.
The other bitch in the line-up is Subway Ruth and Francie Murray's charge has the ideal draw in one. Furthermore, Ruth is bred to win it as her dam Forest Baby won this Classic final four years ago.
Barefoot Machine, Crossfield Star and Incitatus complete a very interesting line-up.
Meanwhile, the second round of the College Causeway/Killahan Phanter Easter Cup will pack them into Shelbourne on Saturday.
Derby champion Razldazl George has a tricky draw in Heat 2 where he will wear the blue jacket and has Rockview Head on his inner. This fellow is inclined to move wide on the run-up, and perhaps George might be better off making a slowish start!
Prize-money for the top grades at Harold's Cross is to be increased from Friday.
The increases will see the winners of Open, A1 and A2 winners receive €400 compared to the present €250, while the runners-up will earn €100 from €70, and third-placed finishers €50 from €30.
