Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Friday May 12

There is racing from Dundalk on Friday evening
There is racing from Dundalk on Friday evening

Timeform pick out three bets from Dundalk on Friday evening.


Elusive In Paris - 17:40 Dundalk

Elusive In Paris possibly wasn't suited by having to make his own running in a claimer over a mile here last time and should benefit from having the front-running Emperor Bob in this race. Mustadeem should be sharper for a recent spin over hurdles and is a possible threat, while Indian Tomahawk arrives on the back of a claiming win at Clonmel last week.

Richard Strauss - 19:55 Dundalk

Shawami represents a red-hot yard and will likely have more to offer for her new connections, but she does seem to have been well found in the market, and it could be worth chancing Richard Strauss instead. His best performances so far have come at this venue, and following an eye-catching effort over seven furlongs at Limerick seven days ago, is taken to get off the mark back up in trip.

Duncan of Scotland - 21:00 Dundalk

Duncan of Scotland was a commanding all-the-way winner at Ayr on Monday and a penalty won't prevent another very bold bid if he's in that sort of mood. He is drawn in stall 10, but with few other habitual front runners in the race, he can hopefully still get a good position. Indian Landing, Gopsies Daughter and Pillar are just a trio of viable threats.
