Fraser Black, trainer of Forest Master, is responsible for two of the five Irish-trained finalists after sending out Must Be Keano to win the opening semi in 29.
Black, successful with Droopys Marco in 2005, added: "Must Be Keano seems to be improving at a rate of knots, but you've got to credit Forest Master too.

Barrie Draper's dog found himself in arrears as first Drumna Classic and then Forest Master called the shots, but he flew down the back straight and was challenging at the third bend.
Initially forced to check, he eventually got inside Forest Master and into the lead at the threequarter mark and kept on powerfully to beat that dog by just under two lengths in 29.
Fraser Black, another trainer to be double-handed in a race, landed a one-two in the third quarter-final when Must Be Keano (5-1) got first run to lead home Forest Master by almost two lengths in 28.
They're two top-class greyhounds, but I did favour Forest Master tonight," said Black.
