Fresh from his pre-Christmas romp through the Slyne Memorial at Curraheen Park, Skywalker Logan returns to action in the concluding BoyleSports Getting Out 575 at Shelbourne Park tonight.

The Pat Guilfoyle-trained Skywalker Logan dominated that competition and it should be a repeat performance this evening (10.27) with Our Surprise his likely main rival.

There is plenty of variety on the card and Michael O'Donovan's ex-UK racer Looking Sharp (9.12) is drawn to win over 750 where Obama Country is the biggest threat.

Karol Ramsbottom's flying young bitch Sliabh Liag was the star performer last weekend when she stopped the clock in 28.49 but she will need a repeat performance in tonight's final where Paul Hennessy's Priceless Blake is a very serious rival.

Also tonight the final of the All About Ya Open Unraced will be run at Waterford and there will be huge focus on Nametab Temujin who was sold by Geoff Bateman since last week's 28.79 victory.

He has been bought by Ray Patterson and will be trained by Pat Guilfoyle under the new name of Skywalker Jorge.
