View The Bay may continue on an upward curve by taking the featured Coral Best Price Guaranteed All UK & Irish Races Handicap at Dundalk this evening.

The Casamento filly has won twice here this winter over five furlongs and seven furlongs for Andy Slattery and his nephew Ben Coen, and this intermediate distance may well prove her best.

The Killenaule trainer nominated this race after her latest victory a fortnight ago, although there are plenty of dangers lurking among her 12 rivals.

Newmarket trainer Michael Wigham has booked Colin Keane for Nick Vedder, who has won three times since last August including twice over this trip at Newcastle, while Master Speaker and Billyfairplay are others to consider.

Hazel Bay ran a cracker on debut in the Listed Salsabil Stakes last spring and while it is a concern she has not been seen out since, she looks the one to beat in the James Watters Wholesale Maiden.

The Dermot Weld-trained filly finished strongly to divide Mary Tudor and Princess Yaiza in that Navan event and rates one of the best maidens in the country on that run.

Chess Grand Master completed a treble for Joseph O’Brien when successful over two miles on the Polytrack last week and it would not he a surprise to see him keep up the good work in the Coral Download The App Handicap.

The son of Galileo previously won a maiden over this mile and a half, and gets the vote over Trevena and California Lad.

Jack Davison, who opened his training account at this venue last year with Black Magic Woman, could be on the mark again with Will Be King in the Coral Free Bets For Lengths Maiden.
