Dundalk preview

The most valuable race at Dundalk comes at the end, with the four runners of the Save Greyhound Racing At Wimbledon Race led by Defining Year.

Dermot Weld's charge has struggled in three starts over timber of late, but if he found his old Flat form - which includes a second to Famous Name in a Curragh Group Three - he would prove too strong for recent course winner Gretzky and another hurdler returning to the level in Ebazan.

The meeting gets under way at 6.15pm with the Crowne Plaza Hotel Race & Stay Package Claiming Maiden, where Eddie Lynam's Edamame bids to build on a solid debut second over a furlong shorter last month.

Represent Yourself signed off last year with a solid third in handicap company and could prove a major threat, while Shinyhappyjohn also has claims.

Mick Halford's Bosstime let down favourite-backers when going down by half a length on his debut, but if he improves for that experience he could account for Instruct and Runaiocht in the Valentine's Day At Dundalk Stadium Maiden.

The Firm secured his first success when dropped into claiming company last time, but may find life tougher in the Dundalk Driving Tourism Forward 28th February Rated Race.

That's because She's Not Simple is 3lb better off at the weights on official figures, and ran a solid race for third on her most recent appearance.

Three last-time-out winners contest the Chinese New Year Celebrations At Dundalk Stadium Apprentice Handicap, with Hareth looking less exposed than Pivot Bridge and Carvelas.

Catwilldo had Strategic Heights half a length behind when they met last month and reopposes on 2lb worse terms in the Love Racing, Love Dundalk Stadium Handicap, while the Romancing, Dining And Racing At Dundalk Stadium Handicap could be between Califante and Blue Bullet.
