An all-Flat card for the third day of the Tramore festival kicks off with the Style Evening At Tramore Races Maiden, which sees Hurricane Volta bid to turn some consistent efforts into a win.

David Wachman's charge has twice filled third spot in decent contests and could have been found an ideal opening here, though Columbanus was far from disgraced on his debut at Galway and Burnt Sienna is capable of better than he showed at Sligo last time.

Wachman runs Saldanha Bay in the Ashtown House Stud EBF Fillies Maiden and the Leopardstown fifth has to be feared, though Drop The Subject is better off on official figures and Dermot Weld's Scholarly is likely to improve for her debut.

Wachman has arguably stronger claims in the Online Photo Printing At brennanspharmacy.ie Rated Race, as An Fear Ciuin was impressive in making all at Wexford.

Bogardus also comes into the race on the back of a Wexford win, though the margin of victory was much less, while John Murphy opts to fit a hood on Battle Hymn, who has been consistent in defeat this term.

Willie Mullins has a trio of runners on the card starting with Shamar in the Assembly Techniques Weekend Jolly Handicap, in which just three rivals stand in his way, two of whom, Sheilas Wish and Blue Ridge Lane, come from John McConnell's yard.

Mullins will need a runner to come out of the Bet Online At thetote.com Handicap for Clondaw Warrior, so he has a more live contender in the Dan Cowman Memorial Handicap with Wood Breizh.

A winner over timber at this venue, he was a fair sixth in a handicap at Galway last time and could be capable of mastering Tipperary second Oneeightofamile and British raider Bell Weir.

Fire Belt and Glasson Lad are two of the main contenders for the Blue Moon Still Rising Rated Race.
