Dundalk's usual Friday card gets the attention of Timeform's SmartPlays team.
"Forbidden City hasn't got home over a mile here on both starts since joining this yard and makes plenty of appeal back down at seven furlongs from a handy berth in stall 2."
Asian Wing - 18:35 Dundalk
Asian Wing is well handicapped on old form, and looks to be coming to the boil for this yard judged on last month's course third, so he looks the answer. Allen Warrior is a likely improver, while it will be interesting to see whether the money comes for Laurel Creek again.
Strait of Zanzibar - 19:35 Dundalk
Strait of Zanzibar has dropped to a workable mark on the back of two respectable efforts here this spring, and now re-fitted with his usual headgear mix, may just represent some value in a very open contest. Burn The Boats has an unexposed profile on the all-weather and is feared on return, just ahead of the in-form Togoville.
Forbidden City - 20:05 Dundalk
Forbidden City hasn't got home over a mile here on both starts since joining this yard and makes plenty of appeal back down at seven furlongs from a handy berth in stall 2. Tsar Paul ended up with too much to do last time and almost certainly remains in good form, while Moss Nation went close over C&D last time and should get involved again despite being drawn wider than ideal.
