Chance for Bungle Inthejungle to make it three at Dundalk today
Gale Force Ten will also see his first runner in the same contest
With the first leg already down on this year's breeze-up sales circuit, the focus switches back to the racing, with three freshman sires fielding runners in the median auction stakes over the minimum trip at Dundalk (6.00).
Bungle Inthejungle, who has already supplied first-crop winners, is the sire of the favourite Tarrzan, trained by Willie McCreery and to be ridden by Billy Lee.
Morpheus and Gale Force Ten have an outsider each declared for the same contest, with the latter set to be represented by his first runner.
Deep House, a son of Morpheus, was a €16,000 yearling purchase for Robbie McNamara and finished ninth on debut at Naas, while Speirling Ophelia, who went unsold as a yearling, while hopefully register as a force for her sire Gale Force Ten.
