All-weather action takes centre stage again on Friday as Dundalk is the setting for a seven-race card, with the pick coming in the www.dundalkstadium.com handicap.

Last-start winners Indian Landing and Dancing Cosmos are sure to prove popular as they bid to supplement those gains, but Maontri looked a mare firmly on the upgrade when breezing clear to record a second successive triumph here last week and she might be one for punters to stick with for the time being.

Racing gets under way at 6.15 with the Floodlit Friday Nights At Dundalk Rated Race and the return to 6f might just spark a return to form from Above The Law, who was below par when sent off favourite over the minimum distance here latest.

Should he fluff his lines again, it would come as no surprise to see British import Winslow Arizona take advantage on his first start for Tony Mullins.

The drop back to a mile did the trick for Settle For Red here most recently and he might prove hard to beat again as he lines up in the Jolly January Dining Handicap.

Mick Halford's four-year-old always tends to carry plenty of market confidence behind him and connections will be hopeful they have found his ideal trip now.

Plenty appear to harbour claims in the Follow Dundalk On Facebook Handicap but Armed Guard was a good winner over C & D a fortnight ago and doesn't seem to have been too harshly treated by a 5lb rise in the weights.

He will surely make his presence felt again, although the consistent Juara and the lightly raced Forest Hawk - both behind him last time - are just two who ought to be snapping at his heels.

The Crowne Plaza Leading Jockey & Trainer Championship Maiden brings the curtain down on the evening's action and Sceilg holds strong claims as she bids to atone for her narrow defeat here two weeks ago.
