Dundalk's usual Friday card is subjected to Timeform's inspection.
"Absorbing ran her best race yet when third in a seven-furlong handicap here two weeks ago and can improve again to get off the mark with the return to a mile in her favour."
Beau Satchel - 19:05 Dundalk
Beau Satchel hasn't been seen since October, but he had a fine 2014 and may be worth chancing to make a winning start to this campaign. The Dancing Lord and Adroit are another pair to consider.
My Manekineko - 19:35 Dundalk
My Manekineko shaped well when fifth on his first outing/return for new yard here last month, eventually undone by the combination of a lack of a recent run and the longer trip (unproven beyond a mile) but going like a well handicapped horse for a long way, and could well be the answer back down to a mile. Coach Bombay and County Wexford are feared most.
Absorbing - 20:05 Dundalk
Absorbing ran her best race yet when third in a seven-furlong handicap here two weeks ago and can improve again to get off the mark with the return to a mile in her favour. Family Pride and Super Ollie Mario make each-way appeal at likely odds.
