The National Coursing Meeting will attract huge crowds to Powerstown Park this weekend but there is also plenty of interest in proceedings at Clonmel with the festival of racing featuring a number of valuable finals.

The undoubted highlight is the final of the Rural Hawaii @ Stud Open Unraced stake.

Graham Holland has an exceptionally strong hand in the €6,000 decider with litter brothers Doolin Duke and Newinn Session expected to dominate the betting.

Both youngsters have shown promise and after two brilliant performances in the preliminaries will defend an unbeaten record this evening.

Attempting to choose between the pair is no easy task, although Newinn Session has gone faster than his brother in both rounds to date.

Doolin Duke has the better of the draw but one suspects Newinn Session is destined for greatness and he gets the nod to dominate from the outset.

Elsewhere on the card, Holland also has strong claims with the likes of Ballydoyle Bee, Timaru Walker and In the Genes expected to start favourite for their respective finals.
