Political Policy goes for his third Dundalk win in just over three weeks in the Christmas Race & Dine Packages Handicap.

This will be the four-year-old's 12th competitive start since the beginning of September but he is thriving on his racing, as shown by his victory over this mile trip before he was successfully stepped up to an extended mile and a quarter just over a week ago.

Prior to that, though, he was only sixth behind Toccata Blue, Hes Our Music and Bishan Bedi, who are all in opposition again.

Fast In The Wind is another being kept busy and having filled the runner-up berth for the second successive race here seven days ago, he strives to go one better in the opening Crowne Plaza Race & Stay Handicap at 5.35.

He was ahead of Calm Bay last week and has more to fear from Little Sweetheart, who chased home subsequent winner Danz Gift when last seen.

Aidan O'Brien pitched Stone Mountain into the Listed Marble Hill Stakes at the Curragh back in May and although he came up short there, he has been freshened up and, in the Christmas Party Packages Dundalk Stadium Nursery Handicap, reappears at a more suitable level.

The Michael Mulvany-trained Prove The Point is another to have been thrown in at the deep end - she was down the field in a Group Three and a big sales race - but should find the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden more to her liking, although she comes up against a couple of interesting O'Brien debutants, not to mention David Wachman's well-related Galileo newcomer Love Potion.

Hatch Hall seeks a three-timer in the first division of the Crowne Plaza Leading Jockey & Trainer Championship Apprentice Handicap, while Heavy Weight returned from a three-year break to strike over seven furlongs here and goes up in distance for the Irishinjuredjockeys.com Handicap.
