There's action on the All-Weather at Dundalk this evening

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

"This looks a decent opportunity for him to build on that and he's taken to resume winning ways."

Timeform on Aussie Valentine

Lovee Dovee - Dundalk 17:00

There was plenty to like about Lovee Dovee's debut when fourth over a furlong shorter here last month, shaping much better than the bare result, keeping on when snatched up inside the final furlong and finishing with plenty of running left. She's bred to be useful (half-sister to several winners, including smart winner up to 1m Night of Light), and give the impression as the sort who will improve markedly for that initial outing. As such, she can't be opposed in Dundalk's opener.

Aussie Valentine - Dundalk 17:30

Aussie Valentine picked up from where he left off when a solid third after 111 days off here two weeks ago, edging briefly ahead two furlongs out before having no extra in the final furlong. This looks a decent opportunity for him to build on that and he's taken to resume winning ways. Hasselnott has done well in claiming company here this winter and may provide the main threat on his first run for another yard.

Marshall Law - Dundalk 18:00

Marshall Law has improved with each of his third starts to date, and he took a big step forward when third on his most recent start in a big field event at Leopardstown in October. The form he has shown is working out well, and he sets a clear standard on what he has shown so far. Jered Maddox is next best ahead of Jupiter Road.
