Gordon Elliott sends a strong team to the beach with four contenders at the Laytown races.

The Cullentra trainer saddles two in the Marquees Nationwide Claiming Race and has booked top jockeys for both his runners.

Joseph O'Brien takes the mount on Sister Slew, who just sneaks into the race having dropped a few pounds recently, while Pat Smullen rides Snoqualmie Chief, who bids to leave behind a couple of disappointing efforts over hurdles.

"On her mark she looks to have a chance," said Elliott of Sister Slew. "It's a competitive race but she's up to running well.

"Snoqualmie Chief has been very disappointing lately and hopefully he produces better."

Elliott has snapped up Nina Carberry for the two amateur events on the card.

Landau comes into the Barry Matthews Appreciation Handicap off the back of a cosy hurdles success at Downpatrick and had also run well when last seen on the Flat at Galway.

"He's been in good form and he'll like the good ground on the beach," said Elliott.

High Net Worth will bid to bounce back to form in the concluding Hibernia Steel Race but has the ability to make a big impression in the rated contest.

He has failed to shine over hurdles lately but holds the highest rating of 75 and had some fine form at Dundalk earlier in the year.

"If he comes back to his old Dundalk form he looks to have a very good chance," said Elliott.

"He lost his way over hurdles a bit but we've freshened him up since and hopefully he'll run well."
