'Noah' and 'Man' to be top juveniles

The young stars have been producing the fireworks in the Dublin Coach Juvenile Derby at Shelbourne for the last three weeks and we can expect more of the same when the semi-finals are run this evening.

Two of the leading fancies, Borna Gin and Droopys Noah, clash in the opening heat and it should be a thriller.

They met last week when the John Linehan-trained Droopys Noah led all the way for victory but it could be much closer this time as Pat Buckley is anticipating a better run from Borna Gin.

The field is made up by useful performers in Cuil Viking, Space Ghetto, Lemon Donald and Blockthiscaller but the big two are Droopys Noah and Borna Gin and they can finish in that order.

Prior to the competition I plumped for Man Twenty One to be the outright winner of this Classic. Nothing since has forced me to change my mind and a trap-one draw increases confidence in the Brendan Maunsell-trained youngster.

He missed the start last week and yet came from five lengths adrift of Portmageewiseguy to win the semi. He looks ideally housed in one this time and is made a banker bet to win from Skywalker Rafa and Portmageewiseguy.

Due to a malfunction of the hare the last heat of the Gain A3 on Friday was declared void and it will be run tonight at Kilkenny.

The National Greyhound Awards Presentation, which was postponed due to the closure of Shelbourne in February, will be staged on Sunday week at 5pm in the Killashee Hotel, Naas and tickets are now on sale.
