The track action is picking up in tempo following the Christmas break and this is the last Saturday before the commencement of the major competitions next weekend.

Next Saturday the Best Car Parks Gold Cup will kick off at Shelbourne and many of the challengers for that early feature will have their warm-up race this evening.

One dog which is guaranteed to be close to the top of the Gold Cup betting is Jaytee Yankee and Paul Hennessy's tracker will make his seasonal debut in the concluding BoyleSports Getting Out 550.

Hennessy brought this dog along gradually in 2017 and he exceeded expectations by winning the BoyleSports Champion Stakes at Shelbourne.

The English Derby is his major target in the first half of the year and his class can carry him through in this interesting contest.

Pat Curtin's Madabout Eoghan has the ability to give a real account of himself and this ex-British racer reads as the main danger to Jaytee Yankee (10.27).

Another former British tracker Dorotas Del Mar makes hisShelbourne debut in another AAO contest.

He is a litter brother to Irish Oaks winner Forest Natalee and he is highly talented but this will be his first look at the Ringsend circuit and he may have to give best to the early pace of the Ian Reilly-trained Shaneboy Denzel (10.12).

Neilus O'Connell's Ahavoher Beauty (8.42) has yet to show her best form here but she is open class at Curraheen and warrants support in the second semi of the A2 Bitch 525.

Elsewhere, the Dublin Coach A3 is expected to unveil a few new stars when it commences at Limerick.

Ballyard Jenny and Shelone Iso are talented trackers expected to get off to a flying start in the opening round. Michael Daly's Ballyard Jenny (8.24) appeals as an early banker while Pat Buckley's Shelone Iso (8.39) looked a hot property on his winning Dundalk debut.
