Horse Racing Tips: Back a pair of All-Weather runners in 13/1 Friday double

Alan's second leg of today's double runs at Dundalk on Friday evening

Alan Dudman is looking for All-Weather profit on Friday with two picks at Dundalk and Newcastle for today's double...

  • Consistency key for Newcastle first leg

  • Union Flag to relish the step up to 1m4f

  • Alan has 7/42.75 and 4/15.00 selections for the multiple

Newcastle - 19:00: Back Bernie The Bear

It will be interesting to see if the arithmetic is altered in terms of price with Richard Fahey's Bernie The Bear - who was cut from 11/43.75 into 7/42.75 for Newcastle's 19:00.

The Bear was a last time out winner when beating Merry Secret, and he's been a model of consistency despite a lowly rating. Indeed, he won that off 48 and is just 2lb higher.

The win at Wolverhampton saw a bit of trouble behind, and while the track might have been a little sharp for him, he was in a good position and recorded a career best.

Crucially he could have the best of the draw in nine here, and it's such a poor race. His consistency with six places from 12 career starts should see him in the frame and while he stays 1m, the 7f tonight looks his best trip.

Back Bernie The Bear @ 7/42.75

Dundalk - 19:45: Back Union Flag

Noel Meade's Union Flag is still seeking his first win, but with the booking of the champion jockey Colin Keane tonight under the lights, the 3yo has a bit more to offer at a price of 4/15.00.

The selection is unexposed on the All-Weather but he took to the surface well last time when trying 1m2f when he finished third.

He didn't get much cover and was too keen, two factors that went against him but he did fare best from those coming from off the pace as the first made the running and the second was always on the speed.

Union Flag runs off the same mark tonight off 63, but the trip could be key is he steps up to 1m4f and that is very much suitable on pedigree with two 1m6f winners in his family.

The draw in five will also help Keane get some cover early.
