Vector Force bids to go one better than on his debut in the Irish Stallion Farms Median Auction Maiden at Dundalk on Friday.

The son of Kodiac was beaten just a head at Roscommon but the winner, Intensical, has subsequently boosted that form by acquitting himself creditably in a Group 3.

Ger Lyons' charge could be given most to think about by recent course third Zarib.

Lady Mega also attempts to improve on a debut second in the opening Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden at 5.45.

Edward Lynam's filly belied odds of 16-1 to go close in September and could improve, though Wayne Lordan has opted to ride the yard's newcomer Not Your Call.

Lynam could also enjoy success in the Floodlit Friday Nights At Dundalk Handicap with Super Sling.

A winner at this venue over a mile, he disappointed when dropped in trip latest, but can get back to winning ways over some extra yardage.

High Net Worth is tried at a new distance in the Follow Dundalk On Facebook Maiden.

A faller over hurdles when last sighted, the son of Oasis Dream had finished runner-up on four consecutive occasions over shorter trips prior to that.

The top weights appear to have strong claims in both divisions of the Crowne Plaza Hotel Race & Stay Handicap.

Longfield Lad has shown improvement since blinkers were applied and is 5lb lower than his course and distance success, while Kanes Pass was only a length adrift at the Curragh last time is rated 14lb lower on the all-weather.

Niall McCullagh appears to have a couple of live chances in the divided Christmas Party Nights At Dundalk Stadium Handicap, with Bomber Jackson 2lb better off than when beaten by Valley Queen in the first division.

Apache Gold got his head in front at Cork and can prosper off a 5lb lower mark on the all-weather in the second edition of the race.
