The O'Brien family team up with a handful of runners at Dundalk on Friday.

Champion trainer Aidan O'Brien calls upon youngest son Donnacha to do the steering on Bishan Bedi, who carried the teenager into the winner's enclosure after a wide-margin success here over seven furlongs before he held his own in fourth over the same course and distance that he will encounter in the Floodlit Friday Nights Handicap.

O'Brien has booked daughter Ana for Song Of Love in the Elusive Pimpernel Maiden.

The son of Fastnet Rock has been ridden by Donnacha on each of his last four appearances, including when having to settle for second as an odds-on favourite a fortnight ago.

Ana is also on The Islander in the opening Dundalk Stadium On Facebook Handicap (6.05), but the application of blinkers will need to spark serious improvement if he is trouble the hat-trick seeking Your Pal Tal, the bang-in-form Majestic Timeline, and the ever-reliable Strategic Heights.

Few horses are in better form than Sharjah at present and Andrew Slattery's five-year-old goes for his fifth win from his last six outings in the Crowne Plaza Leading Jockey & Trainer Championship Handicap.

Ned's Indian has run behind him the last twice, so chief opposition could come in the shape of Mark Loughnane's raider Coillte Cailin, who is joined on the trip from Staffordshire by stablemate For Shia And Lula, who takes in Bishan Bedi's race.

The Andy Oliver-trained Have A Great Day was also last seen in the UK, but that came back in December 2013, and if fitness is an issue in the Maiden, the one to capitalise might be Cutting Corners, who was an encouraging third on his introduction.

Saga Diamond hit the crossbar a couple of weeks ago and seems to have every chance of going one better in the Dundalk Stadium - Light Up Your Night Fillies Maiden.
