Maunsell's 'man' is the top prospect

The potential champions of 2018 will be on show in what promises to be an intriguing programme at Shelbourne Park this evening featuring the quarter-finals of the Dublin Coach Juvenile Derby.

The standard of performance so far has been most impressive but tonight the emphasis will be on qualification with some massive clashes in prospect.

The race of the night can be Heat 3 in which the Brendan Maunsell-trained Man Twenty One will need to be on his toes to justify his market rating. He will have an early battle with Owen McKenna's Portmageewiseguy in a race where Pat Buckley's Javielenko and John Linehan's Droopys Denny will be doing all of their best work late.

Buckley's Borna Gin and Linehan's Droopys Noah have been real eye-catchers in their outings but something must give in their Heat 1 meeting. Borna Gin may prove the strongest while Droopys can see off Liam Dowling's Ballymac Coyote for second.

Mary O'Connor's big-finishing Minor Mike can lead home Michael O'Donovan's Skywalker Rafa and Tom Lennon's Lemon Donald in Heat 2.

The final heat appears to be the easiest of the four and preference is for Jerry Griffin's strong-running Bannons Bullet to get first run on Dowling's Ballymac Twitter.

There is a classy card at Kilkenny this evening where the Gain Dog Nutrition A3 heats are the main attraction.

Meanwhile, the IGB has announced that all samples in the BoyleSports Derby tested negative.
