Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Boxer to deliver knockout blow

Dundalk plays host to racing on Friday.

Timeform highlight three bets on tonight's card at Dundalk...

Mad For Road will appreciate the return to 2m and can go well if shrugging off a couple of lesser efforts over hurdles this winter, but Boxer Beat (18:45) ought to be very competitive from this mark and this could be the day he finally sheds his maiden status on the level. Armed Guard completes the shortlist.

English Deer ended his 3-y-o campaign on the up, whilst recent C&D winner Zalty defends an unbeaten record on this surface, but at the likely prices, it may be worth siding with In Salutem (19:45), who has been given every chance by the assessor on this a rare handicap start.

No Wunder (21:15) showed plenty of improvement when runner-up in this headgear at the Curragh last time and should prove hard to beat if seeing out the longer trip. Battle Hymn and Benny Blanco are others to consider.

Timeform Irish SmartPlays:
All at Dundalk
Back Boxer Beat in the 18:45
Back In Salutem in the 19:45
Back No Wunder in the 21:15
