Dundalk stages the Irish action on Friday

Timeform identify the three best bets at Dundalk on Friday...

"...she remains capable of better for this yard..."

Timeform on Bella Brazil

Pretty Little Liar - 17:30 Dundalk

Plenty of these have a questions to answer so it could be worth siding with Pretty Little Liar, who arrives on the back of a good second over course and distance. She proved no match for the winner but pulled four lengths clear of the remainder, suggesting that she may be capable of defying this 2 lb higher mark. Getgo took a step back in the right direction last time and is respected.

Rock On Aidan - 18:00 Dundalk

Rock On Aidan ran right up to his best when finishing runner-up over course and distance last time and he is expected to give another good account. He has proved consistent since entering handicaps from a lowly mark and still appeals as being fairly treated, while the good form of trainer Ado McGuinness is another positive.

Bella Brazil - 18:30 Dundalk

Bella Brazil showed promise when winning at Redcar last year but she failed to build on that for David Barron. However, the switch to Jessica Harrington's yard seems to have had a positive impact as she showed improved form to wake a winning start for her new stable at Kempton, prevailing despite being 5 lb out of the handicap. She was only narrowly denied at Newcastle last time, doing well to get so close from a poor position, and she remains capable of better for this yard.
