Dermot Weld sends a strong team to Sligo, starting with Ealain Aibrean in the opening Irish Stallion Farms E.B.F. Auction Maiden (5.45).

Although slightly disappointing the last twice, the Excellent Art filly began her career with two good silver medals and has the edge on experience against these rivals.

Thriller is interesting in opposition as she lowers her sights after starting off in a couple of Listed events.

Another Weld representative likely to prove very popular with punters is Show Court, who lines up for the Pet Stop Discount Warehouse And Fuel Centre Carraroe Sligo Race.

The four-year-old was beaten a little over a length in a valuable Curragh handicap last month and comes out best at the weights on official ratings.

Spirit Of Concorde represents the Rosewell House handler in the closing Irish Stallion Farms E.B.F. Maiden and looks a leading contender following three good efforts in defeat so far.

He faces some interesting rivals in the shape of Modista, who stayed on well for second over 1m1f once the penny dropped on debut, and Gerdagom, who only went down by a head over further at Tipperary recently.

Three Bells bids to finally get off the mark in the Kilcawley Construction Sligo Handicap.

The Patrick Downey-trained gelding got within half a length of doing so in a similar event at Limerick off the same mark on Saturday, but this assignment is far from straightforward.

Vasoni found only one too good on that same Limerick card and should challenge again, along with Blistering Dancer who has been on the podium the last twice.

Charlie Swan will be hoping a 5lb penalty isn't enough to halt Bainne in the countysligoraces.com Fillies Handicap (50-80).

With two wins from her last three starts, the Strategic Prince filly is clearly on the upgrade and she did the job in good style at Cork on Sunday.
