O'Connor can show class at Dundalk
Dundalk doesn't much feel like the Bahaman island after which Eleuthera is called for most of its fixtures throughout the year - but it will be plenty warm for punters if the horse completes a hat-trick in this evening's finale.
Trained at the Curragh by John Levins, Eleuthera is top weight but should prove up to the task. This is essentially a shocker of a race, he is drawn three and he benefits from the 5lb claim of the excellent Donagh O'Connor.
O'Connor was seen to superb effect on No Way Jack at Gowran on Wednesday, even though the 12/1 chance was beaten. Eleuthera is far more straightforward and napped on this occasion.
Dundalk mixes the good with the bad this evening. The pivot Irish Stallion Farms EBF 'Red God' Handicap is the highlight, if not for betting reasons, Harbour Beacon put forward. Ger Lyons' Harbour Watch gelding is blinkered, a work in progress and has a perfect draw in one.
Qatar Racing can also take the opener with Duplication, one of five mounts for title-chasing Donnacha O'Brien. This one is solid and O'Brien can double up on his father Aidan's Hence, which makes plenty of appeal in the fillies' maiden.
Pat Smullen looks set to finish the campaign strongly in his bid to retain his title at the potential expense of his nephew-in-law Donnacha. As such, he will be hoping that Captain Vancouver can go two better for Michael O'Callaghan in the Foran Equine Irish EBF Auction Maiden after a very promising first outing a fortnight ago.
It could be a double for Levins and O'Connor, with Sixtyfiveroses put forward in a really weak Bar One Racing Special Apprentice Handicap. She has been disappointing but the pick of her form would probably suffice.
O'Callaghan and Smullen can double up too. Like Sixtyfiveroses, The Great Wall is poorly drawn, but seems capable of taking victory.
Tramore opens with a smart contest and Potters Point can score under Davy Russell.
