John Oxx looks to have a decent prospect in Harry's Princess, who struck at the first time of asking in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies Maiden at Dundalk.

Peony Fairy cut out the early running and still led turning for home, but Declan McDonogh guided Harry's Princess upsides at the two furlong marker.

The 5-1 chance stretched clear in the closing stages, securing a four and a half-length verdict.

Dusty In Memphis belied a lengthy absence to strike in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden.

David Wachman's 7-4 chance had been off the track since April, but made every yard, travelling much the best on the turn for home and keeping up the gallop to beat favourite The Visitor by two and three quarter lengths.

Rummaging (5-4 favourite) was made to work hard to land the Dundalk Stadium - Light Up Your Night Handicap.

Mick Halford's charge was travelling much the best at the two furlong pole under Shane Foley, but the pacesetting Toccata Blue would not go down without a fight and there was just a neck in it at the line.

Rose Angel (5-2 favourite) followed up a victory at this track on Friday with further success on the all-weather in the Christmas Party Nights At Dundalk Handicap.

Leigh Roche had got Have A Nice Day quickly to the head of affairs from a wide draw and had plenty of his rivals struggling turning for home, except Rose Angel.

Robbie Downey's mount got on terms at the furlong pole and though she had to work hard in the end, she prevailed by .

Adrian Joyce trained the first two home in the Crowne Plaza Hotel Race And Stay Handicap, with Chris Hayes driving 5-2 favourite Majestic Timeline to victory over stablemate Times In Anatefka, while the www.dundalkstadium.com Handicap went to Julie Cashin's Street Party (8-1) under Joseph O'Brien.
