Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Friday December 20

Dundalk hosts racing on Friday
Dundalk hosts racing on Friday

As ever, it's Dundalk that comes under inspection on Friday evening...

"Well Insured can overturn recent course form with First Friday, unlucky not to beat that one when colliding with a rail in the final furlong over one and a half miles last time."

The 18:15 looks ultra-competitive with most of the field having something to recommend them. The Black Devil produced a career-best when scoring over C&D in August and got back to that level when second to Cheers Buddy here last time. He's weighted to reverse the form with that rival here and is marginally preferred to Ningaloo Reef and Beat The Ballot.

Those towards the bottom of the weights generally make most appeal in the handicap at 19:45, and Shes No Joke is fancied to resume winning ways after being denied a run over seven furlongs last time. Prince of Fashion and last-time-out winner Little Arrows are others with sound claims.

The 20:15 is another competitive handicap. In this, Well Insured can overturn recent course form with First Friday, unlucky not to beat that one when colliding with a rail in the final furlong over one and a half miles last time. Noble Call is another to consider following a couple of good efforts over hurdles.
