Timeform pick out three bets from Dundalk on Friday...

"The booking of Pat Smullen could be a sign of intent..."

Uncle Henry - 17:00 Dundalk

Uncle Henry showed plenty to work on when finishing third over a mile and a quarter at this course on debut last month and should take a bit of stopping here granted normal improvement. That form looks strong with the winner going in again since and the runner-up not disgraced, and Uncle Henry is fancied to open his account at the second attempt. Sir Danilo and Emerald Cross are the obvious form threats, while Lady de Vesci needs assessing for market confidence on debut.

Schindlers Ark - 17:30 Dundalk

Schindlers Ark made the perfect start for Gordon Elliott when winning a novice hurdle at Cork earlier this month and is very much one to consider now having his attentions switched to the Flat. He was only modest on the Flat for his previous yard, but Elliott is very adept with such types, and a mark of 53 could well underestimate him. Glib Speech and Marino Marvel head the dangers.

Invincible Ryker - 19:30 Dundalk

Invincible Ryker is progressing all the time, running a clear career best when winning a minor event over this C&D last time, and he will remain of interest back in a handicap. Mick Halford continues among the winners and, the booking of Pat Smullen could be a sign of intent, so he is fancied to go close from a workable draw. Arbourfield and Tennesse Waltz head the list of dangers.
