Solo Performer bids for a course-and-distance double in the www.dundalkstadium.com Handicap, the highlight of Dundalk's evening card.

The Harry Rogers-trained eight-year-old accounted for the reopposing Paddy The Celeb (third) and Gretzky (fourth) when scoring at the County Louth track last month, but only a length covered the trio.

They are likely to be in the firing line again, along with Fantasy King, who has missed out by just a neck on his last two starts.

Aidan O'Brien is doubly represented in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden courtesy of Half Moon and Just Pretending.

Neither set the world alight first time out and the standard is set by the more experienced Shelina and Bint Nayef, who was narrowly denied on her recent racecourse debut.

O'Brien also launches a two-pronged assault on the shorter Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden which kicks off the seven-race card at 6.20.

Il Palazzo and Nymph fly the Ballydoyle flag, with the latter an interesting newcomer, while Kevin Prendergast's Majenta and the well-bred Sleeping Beauty also fall into that category.

There could be plenty more to come from Muizenberg Nights in the Hen & Stag Packages At Dundalk Stadium Handicap after she broke her duck over this same track and trip earlier this month.

Tommy Stack's filly faces some in-form rivals in the shape of Versilia Gal, Monakova and Toberton, so picking up another gold medal won't be easy.

The Dundalk Stadium On Facebook Maiden brings proceedings to a close and Spirit Of Concorde is sure to be very popular.

The Authorized gelding has found only one too good on both starts to date and he should be sharper for his recent reappearance run.

The Dundalk Stadium Handicap and DKIT Student Race Night Handicap represent tricky puzzles for punters to solve, but Donal Kinsella has a decent shout in both courtesy of Maudlin Magdalen and Happy Maverick respectively.
