Timeform's Irish team bring you their three best bets for Friday night at Dundalk...
"Given the manner in which Marble Statuette won over C&D earlier this month, an 8 lb rise doesn’t look enough to stop her following up..."
Dundalk 18:10 - Sylvan Mist
It's a sprint handicap over five furlongs under consideration first and Sylvan Mist is the one for our money. He is competitively weighted to win returned to handicap company following a respectable effort over C&D in October and looks more than capable of capitalising on the return to calmer waters if in the right frame of mind.
Dundalk 19:40 - Marble Statuette
The next bet on the card comes in the apprentice handicap over seven furlongs and given the manner in which Marble Statuette won over C&D earlier this month, an 8 lb rise doesn't look enough to stop her following up. That was only her second start for Tony Martin and with more improvement sure to be forthcoming, she is taken to make it two on the bounce.
Dundalk 20:10 - Jackie Ellis
Our aim to end the week on a profitable note rests on Jackie Ellis in the handicap over a mile. Although Nedera seeks to follow-up her C&D win, the selection was in behind that day and looks to have excellet prospects of reversing the form on the revised terms of this evening's contest. Trade Market merits respect given he is in a similar situation but it is hoped Jackie Ellis can get her head in front.
