Gordon Elliott, who saddles three fancied runners in the Aintree National today, will have another leading contender when Master Jingles contests the first semi-final of the Con & Annie Kirby Memorial at Limerick.

Elliott became involved with the dog this week when he joined his owners Aidan and Caran Walsh with the Francie Murray-trained dog which ran Jaytee Taylor to a head in last week's third round.

Master Jingles has a tough draw in the first heat where the market leaders will likely be Jaytee Taylor (9.54) and Slippy Cian. Master Jingles' litter brother Rocket Heart also goes in this heat along with Da Head Hunter and the unbeaten Cash Is King. Jaytee Taylor is given the vote to make most use of his red-jacket draw.

Since the competition opened Pat Buckley's runners have been at the head of the betting and his Droopys Davy (10.09) remains the market leader despite being beaten by tonight's rival Blue East last week.

However, he ran a brilliant race in finishing second then and is a confident selection to lead the march into the decider.

He goes from six while his kennel companion Pennylane Masara is sure to be prominent from trap three. Blue East and Lemon Shane should go close but Droopys Davy looks special.

The Healthcare & Transport Services Puppy Oaks should be an epic and tonight's semi-finals can be won by Buckley's Flat White (8.42) and Larry Dunne's Slippery Jade (8.57).

The four heats of the Gain 600 will also be run and the best bets can be Sonic (10.12) and night banker Native Chimes (9.57).

Buckley will be represented far and wide and his Borna Account runs from trap three in the final of the RPGTV Scottish Derby at Shawfield (9.53). He will be one of the outsiders but if he can make a slick break he will go close in a race where Dorotas Vic looks the likely winner.
