Timeform pick out three bets from Dundalk on Friday evening.

"The step up to seven furlongs is unlikely to inconvenience her on that evidence..."

Above Us Only Sky - Dundalk 17:30

Above Us Only Sky is hardly one for maximum faith, but the form he showed when second here two weeks ago is by far the best on offer in this line-up. He might be worth one final chance in the hope that first-time cheekpieces make him apply himself a bit better at the finish. Ishigati stepped up on her debut form when fourth over seven furlongs here last week and likely has more to offer for Dermot Weld, while Luna's Luck wasn't far behind the selection when third here last time.

Boragh Steps - Dundalk 19:30

Boragh Steps put her experience to good use and resumed winning ways on her most recent outing here, her professionalism counting for plenty when things got serious inside the final furlong. The step up to seven furlongs is unlikely to inconvenience her on that evidence and, though War Hero boasts a very similar level of form, Boragh Steps is fancied to have the edge if building on the promise of last time, her attitude a big plus should things get close at the death.

Bien Chase - Dundalk 20:00

Bien Chase was right back on song when runner-up over six furlongs here a fortnight ago, keeping on to be beaten just three quarters of a length, doing well to get so close to one well ahead of his mark. He is taken to go one better from the same perch here, Sean Corby one of the better jockeys to have onside in races of this nature. Pari Passu and Fashaar arrive on the back of last-time-out wins over a mile and could be the pair to give Adrian McAllister's charge most to do.
