The application of a hood worked the oracle for Above The Law at Dundalk last week and he heads back to the all-weather circuit for the Dundalk Driving Tourism Forward 28th February Handicap.

Andy Oliver's five-year-old was a clear-cut winner in the headgear, but has a 6lb higher mark to contend with and faces an in-form opponent in the shape of Doc Holliday, who is one of two runners for Edward Lynam.

Lynam's Soft Power made an impressive debut at the track seven days ago and the County Meath handler will be hoping for similar things from newcomer Edamame, who begins his career in the opening Dundalk Stadium Racecourse Of The Year Maiden at 5.45pm.

The son of Elnadim possibly has most to fear from the filly Chiclet, who was only just denied at this venue last month.

Lynam is also double-handed in the www.jamiemcdonald.org Handicap through the returning Akasaka and recent track runner-up Iron Major, as well as in the Jamie McDonald Great Canada Run Handicap, with Super Sling appearing to hold slightly stronger claims than stable companion Denny Crane.

Just a neck separated Clune Aine and Captains Dilemma when they took minor honours here a fortnight ago and they renew rivalry in the Dundalk Stadium - Light Up Your Night Handicap.

Gold Falcon caught the eye when staying on into third here last week, though, and may beat them both if getting away on terms.

Palace Of Winds wouldn't be one of John Oxx's brightest stars, but he should go close in the Crowne Plaza Hotel Race & Stay Apprentice Maiden.

Cristy's Call strives to end a sequence of second placings in the Crowne Plaza Race & Stay Handicap (Div 1), while the second instalment sees Noble Call attempting to better his second here from the last meeting.
