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

"The presence of Gordon Lord Byron at the top of the handicap means that there are some nice racing weights around..."

Koybig - 17:30 Dundalk

KOYBIG is on a roll for his new trainer and can notch a fourth C&D win in a row. Each of his three wins have been decisive and he won with a bit in hand last time, having travelled smoothly throughout. Invincible Ryker is 2-2 at this track (both 7f) and will be a threat if he sees out the extra furlong, while A Shin Impala has failed to score over hurdles since joining Gordon Elliott but was successful in a similar event over C&D when last seen on the Flat.

Cascavelle - 18:30 Dundalk

The presence of Gordon Lord Byron at the top of the handicap means that there are some nice racing weights around, including for CASCAVELLE who made it 2 wins from 3 outings for his current yard at this course last month. He's unexposed and it's likely there's more to come on just his third handicap start. Fuwairt and Togoville should both continue to give a good account and are feared the most.

Kirk's Dancer - 19:00 Dundalk

KIRK'S DANCER sets the standard on form, and looks to have a good chance back in maiden company. She has run to a fair level on both starts at the track and she shapes as if this longer trip will suit. Zaofu is entitled to improve, while Dasmyhoss will benefit from a return to 1½m and completes the shortlist.
