The six-bend scene has been pretty quiet so far this season but tonight’s Barry’s Tea 750 decider at Curraheen Park signals the commencement of the serious stayers’ campaign.

The star of the competition has been Liam Dowling’s veteran bitch Ballymac Sarahjo and she is the likely favourite to take the top prize. After winning her first two rounds, she was overhauled late by String Of Pearls last week and the prize should rest between these two trackers this evening.

Mickey Flynn’s String Of Pearls has a habit of breaking slowly but was much closer to the pace last week and got up late to win. The feeling this time is that Ballymac Sarahjo (9.50) will lead all the way and  show the way to String Of Pearls at the finish.

The Kasko Novice Stake at Thurles has thrown up a number of champions over the years and Pat  Guilfoyle’s Magical Logan looks the winner this evening. He is a brilliant tracker and is expected to assume control from halfway to take the prize.

Tipperary trainer Michael O’Donovan has two huge talents in 2017 Irish Derby finalist Buckos Dream (10.27) and Skywalker Tuco (10.12) and they can enhance their reputations at Shelbourne this evening.

Entries will close on Monday for the Irish Independent Irish Laurels at Curraheen Park and the draw will be made on Tuesday morning in advance of next weekend’s first round.
