Timeform have found three bets for you at Dundalk on Friday.

Temasek Star has a wide draw to contend with but he has a good record on this surface and may be capable of building on a runner-up effort over C&D last time.

Dundalk 17:30 - Great Wide Open

Great Wide Open's hold-up running style often leaves him a hostage to fortune, but he appears to be fairly treated on these terms and may be capable of registering a second career success if getting the breaks. Great Wide Open bounced right back to form when finishing third here earlier in the month, shaping as if there was a bigger performance in the locker, and he is worth chancing.


Dundalk 19:30 - Reckless Lad

Five-time course winner Reckless Lad has an excellent record here and can be relied upon to launch a bold bid. Reckless Lad arrives on the back of a career-best success, impressing with how strongly he travelled and how well he quickened when the gap finally appeared, and he can follow up that cosy win.


Dundalk 20:30 - Temasek Star

Temasek Star has a wide draw to contend with but he has a good record on this surface and may be capable of building on a runner-up effort over C&D last time. C&D winner Temasek Star has gone well at this venue before, winning twice and finishing placed from four attempts, and he doesn't appear badly treated, so has obvious claims.
