Timeform pick out their three best bets from Dundalk on Friday evening...

"...matched his previous best when a close-up third behind a couple of thriving sorts at Naas..."

Timeform on Uncle Henry

SYRENA - Dundalk 18:00

SYRENA has had plenty of chances, but this looks a good opportunity for her to get off the mark if she can return to the pick of her form, well clear on weight-adjusted ratings and representing the in-form Joseph O'Brien yard. Lavender and Cnoc An Oir head the list of dangers.

LUNA'S LUCK - Dundalk 18:30

LUNA'S LUCK was strong in the betting and shaped better than the bare result when fourth at Roscommon last time, running on late from a poor position. Mick Halford's charge has a higher mark to contend with back on the all-weather, but he is full value for it (most of his best efforts have come on this surface) and looks ready to strike. Time Stands Still and Waitaki are next best.

UNCLE HENRY - Dundalk 20:00

UNCLE HENRY matched his previous best when a close-up third behind a couple of thriving sorts at Naas 10 days ago, an effort all the more encouraging given he came from much further back than that pair. He can resume winning ways back on the all-weather. Park Row continues to thrive on racing and is feared, as is handicap debutant Calgath.
