Lynam Power-ed up for Dundalk

Edward Lynam is expecting good runs from course winners Slade Power and Muck'N'Brass at Dundalk.

The pair feature among six horses declared in what looks a decent race for the Bookings At Race over seven furlongs.

The well-regarded Slade Power is tackling this longer trip for the first time after two wins over a furlong shorter, one of which came at Dundalk in December.

The County Meath trainer said: "He's in good form. We're going to try him over seven furlongs and see how he gets on. Most of my horses act on the surface so I don't think that will be a problem, but it's a good little race."

Muck'N'Brass steps down from a mile, having won over that distance on his latest start in January.

Lynam went on: "I don't think he'd be as good as Slade Power. We're hoping he'll run a nice race. Just looking at the actual race it might be a bit strong for him, but he hasn't got a handicap mark. He's got to run in a winners' race. This is the only race for him, so we thought we'd run him as well."

Ger Lyons saddles Piri Wango, who is unbeaten in two starts at Dundalk, and he feels his runner has plenty to do at the weights.

The trainer said: "The two fillies in the race (Ishvana and Janey Muddles) are well in at the weights.

"I like Edward Lynam's Dutch Art colt. He's won his last two starts and looks a smart colt. It's a typical Dundalk race. It's very strong and if my lad wins at these weights, you'd have to say he's very smart."
