dundalk 2nd May
Slade Power takes the next step up the ladder in the Bookings At dundalkstadium.com Race on Wednesday evening.
Edward Lynam has made no secret of how highly he regards his Dutch Art colt and, while his Irish 2000 Guineas entry may be a bit speculative at this stage, he won well enough on his comeback at Cork and proved himself on the all-weather when shedding his maiden tag at the end of 2011.
The unbeaten Piri Wango is similarly promising, but both will do well to concede 8lb to Janey Muddles and Ishvana, who drop in class after finishing down the field in the Leopardstown 1000 Guineas Trial.
Janey Muddles' stable companion Lonrach returns to action in the www.dundalkstadium.com Handicap and she is 6lb better off with Elusive In Paris for a defeat of less than three lengths at this venue last October.
Her rival has race fitness on his side, though, and he is weighted to reverse form with Samollie, who relegated him into third two runs ago.
Strike Action tops the weights for David Wachman, and the handler takes the wraps off a well-related newcomer in the shape of Attire in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden, which starts the fixture off at 6.15.
Pivotal Rock fought hard to score over an extended mile and a quarter last time so the mile of the Dundalk Stadium On Facebook Handicap may be on the sharp side for him and C & D winner Knockgraffon Lad, who had the reopposing Gaiety Theatre one place behind him when runner-up here last month, is a safer option.
Gowran scorer Apache Drums strives to defy an 11lb rise in the Bookings At dundalkstadium.com Handicap, while the application of blinkers could see Dermot Weld's Train Of Thought in a better light in the Follow Dundalk On Facebook Maiden.
