4:15 Dundalk – Follow Us On Twitter @DundalkStadium Handicap (3yo+) 6f

MEISHAR has a decent record on this surface and the Exchange Rate gelding can get back to winning ways following a couple of near misses.

James McAuley’s charge has won twice here in recent times, scoring in a claimer back in July and adding to his tally back here in September in a handicap where he ran out a comfortable winner over Hodd’s Girl.

He’s finished runner-up in two of his last three starts since, most recently at Laytown at the beginning of November and while he’s inched up another 2lbs in the weights he ought to remain competitive and he can go well here from the plum draw position.

CHAOS CONTROL has been running better than her bare form figures might suggest and the Mastercraftsman colt can get off the mark here.

Andrew Oliver’s charge posted his best run to date when finishing third over seven furlongs at this venue at the beginning of October and he again ran well in defeat when last seen trying this trip for the first time at Gowran Park where he finished fourth to Pale Moonlight, beaten six lengths and possibly unsuited by the mud.

Eased 1lb and back on the all-weather he could find some improvement for his in-form yard and no surprise if he’s competitive again in pursuit of a first win.

SENSE OF ROMANCE might be worth chancing here to shed her maiden tag and the Dutch Art filly ought to go close if repeating the form of her latest run.

Lee Smyth’s charge found only one too good on that occasion in a handicap over a furlong shorter than this distance, denied only by a nose at the line where she finished strongly and this additional yardage might help her open her account despite a 4lbs rise in the weights.

She looks steadily progressive and could have more to offer so she is chanced here to go one better than last time.
