Gilbert's 'hero' should be too strong

Following the cancellation of Tuesday's meeting at Shelbourne due to an unsafe racing surface after torrential rain, the track has been given the green light for a busy weekend of racing.

Derek Frehill confirmed yesterday that remedial work was carried out on the dodgy area and the track was given the thumbs-up following an inspection. An eight-race card was staged at the track last night but there will be 23 races over the next two nights.

Back in November Marie Gilbert turned out Searchforahero (8.40) to spring a surprise in the Night of Stars 750 and he can get back on the winning trail this evening when contesting a semi-final of an A3/4 575. He can be too strong for another strong stayer Sporting Victor.

The Pat Norris-trained Obair Deanta (9.25) hasn't developed as anticipated last summer when he won the Flaherty Markets Corrib Plate at Galway. He is a very pacey greyhound and can prove too strong for rivals in the semi-final of an A2 Stake

A reminder, by the way, that the Rural Hawaii Open Unraced Stake at Clonmel will close to entries on Monday morning with the first round draw to be made at lunchtime that day. Eddie Anderson reported yesterday that the entries are still coming in and that the competition will have at least 36 runners.
