Timeform provide the three best bets at Dundalk on Wednesday...

"...is expected to build markedly on that promising start..."

Timeform on Vatican City

Vatican City - 19:00 Dundalk

Vatican City is an exciting prospect for the Coolmore juggernaut and caught the eye when staying on strongly to finish fifth on debut at Newmarket three weeks ago. He has a top-class pedigree (is a brother to Group 1 winners Gleneagles, Marvellous and Happily) and is expected to build markedly on that promising start.

Plane Tree Fairy - 19:30 Dundalk

Plane Tree Fairy has shown only modest form in maidens but has a good pedigree, is still unexposed after only three runs and looks the type to do better now handicapping. Trainer Ger Lyons has his team in good form and an improved performance is expected from this lightly-raced three-year-old.

Eacharn - 20:00 Dundalk

Eacharn ran below form at the Curragh following a five-month break but that can be excused as he probably needed the run, and he has a good chance here on the pick of his efforts. He runs off a 1 lb lower mark than when successful over course and distance last year, so is clearly on a handy mark, and he gets the vote back on his favourite surface.
