We focus on Dundalk on Friday, picking out three bets including one in a Scoop6 race...
"Equation of Time... was unlucky not to finish closer over C&D last time and should go well if finding the gaps."
In the 18:45, a seven-furlong handicap which features in the Scoop6, Stoichkhov and Red Laser ought to make their presence felt, but they have been done no favours by the draw, so preference is for Mountain Coral, who will be suited by a return to this shorter trip. Misty Lane and Danseur de Feu are others worth considering.
Stynes (20:15) produced his best effort yet on his all-weather debut earlier this month, shaping a bit better than bare result when third over C&D. He's still fairly lightly-raced and heads the shortlist here. Noverre Princess is more than capable from this sort of mark, while the in-form Gun Shoot also sits high on the list of dangers.
The closing contest at 21:15 is quite a competitive race for the grade. The vote goes to Equation of Time, who was unlucky not to finish closer over C&D last time and should go well if finding the gaps. Cebuano is in fine form at present and can follow him home, with The Fox Tully also worthy of consideration on his return to action.
