Timeform's SmartPlays pick out three bets from Dundalk on Friday evening.

"Vocal Warm Up shaped well when runner-up on handicap debut here on last month's return, and with more to come over this trip, seemingly has plenty in her favour."

Washington DC - 17:35 Dundalk

The well-bred Washington DC appeals plenty on paper and it would be no surprise to see him make a winning debut. Gealan demands respect from the Jim Bolger yard, while Spader looks the pick of the Ger Lyons pair on jockey bookings.

Octavia - 18:35 Dundalk

Octavia and No Fear can come to the fore again, with the filly taken to reverse the placings from three weeks ago given her rival seemed to have the run of the race on that occasion. Few of the others make much appeal but Ishebayorgrey should be keeping on at the finish again.

Vocal Warm Up - 19:05 Dundalk

Vocal Warm Up shaped well when runner-up on handicap debut here on last month's return, and with more to come over this trip, seemingly has plenty in her favour. Gainmill Lady is untried on polytrack, but has been given a big chance by the handicapper on her reappearance, with Comingatu one to note in the betting on handicap debut.
