Dahindar can put opponents to the sword

The Dundalk Stadium On Facebook Handicap provides the highlight of a competitive card at the Louth venue today and sees a number of previous winners at the track lock horns.

You have to go back a few runs to find Banna Boirche's success at the track, whereas Dahindar was imperious in scoring here earlier this month and shouldn't be too inconvenienced by the drop to this trip.

Empirico's course success came over the minimum trip, but if he stays, he is another likely danger.

The meeting starts with the Handicap, where Hello Man bids to complete a hat-trick after winning easily at Laytown and Listowel last month.

However, My Girl Anna and Dunne Grand, which have both disappointed since winning here, may relish the return to this surface and won't make life easy.

Roman Flame has been knocking on the door of late and connections will be hopeful she can get her nose in front in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden.

She will have to be at the top of her game, though, as Secret Story ran creditably enough on her debut to suggest she can challenge, while Crystal Morning also looks capable of picking up a race or two.
