Ireland's six-bend classic, the Gain Dog Food Corn Cuchulainn, reaches its conclusion at Harold's Cross this evening and another major success for trainer Graham Holland is predicted with Milldean Puma which has emerged through this competition as a very formidable stayer.

The Shelbourne 575 record holder entered the classic as a novice over the 750 yards trip but he quickly showed that he has the ability to beat the best over six bends. He is not the strongest stayer in the field but his 41.75 second round win showed that he is definitely the fastest of these six dogs over the distance given a fast start.

Strong cases can be made for Tyrap Dragi from an inside draw and Beaming Coyote if she can repeat las week's fast start. The other Holland runners, Jo Jo Fantasy and Ascot Megan, have their chances, while the draw has been cruel to Airmount Tess. But Milldean Puma has the class to rule and he is nominated to lead home Tyrap Dragi and Beaming Coyote.

Meanwhile, up the road at Dundalk, Robert Gleeson's Ballymac Bigmike will be bidding for an eleventh win in a row as he contests the second quarter-final of the Bar One Racing Irish Sprint Cup. He really is the supreme sprinter and he will be a short-price favourite to win a heat from which Slipalong Hero has been withdrawn injured.

Gleeson also has Toolmaker Scot (9.50) which is a likely winner of Heat 4, while Pat Buckley has prospects of a heat double with Alfies Diamond (9.05) in Heat 1 and Slipalong Hero (9.20) in Heat 2.
