Aloof poised to strike

DAVID Wachman’s Aloof is the nap choice in the Christmas Parties At Dundalk Race on the all-weather tonight.

The daughter of Galileo ran well here in September and should now be poised to strike. She was beaten four and a half lengths into second by Aidan O’Brien’s Wading, but that represents smart form.

Wading subsequently went to Newmarket and put up a decent effort to take the Group 2 Rockfel Stakes by an easy two lengths.

Eddie Lynam’s Choral Society can provide the answer to the Stallion Farms’ EBF Median Auction Fillies Maiden.

She produced a decent enough effort at Dundalk last month when third behind Dermot Weld’s Stunned Silence and Aidan O’Brien’s Wave.

The frustrating Regal Tramp could finally pop up in the Winter Racing At Dundalk Maiden. The daughter of Street Cry is at least admirably consistent and again performed with credit when third to the heavily-backed Justification and Ariyfa at Dundalk.

Trotting Weasel, beaten a neck by in-form Ashton Rose at Dundalk, gets the nod in the Handicap.
