Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Friday October 23
Timeform have found three bets at Dundalk on Friday.
Talented Kid snapped a long losing run when winning readily under this rider at Navan on Wednesday, and he will prove difficult to beat under a penalty if in similar form.
Dundalk 19:35 - Nice And Dandy
This is a competitive nursery, but Nice And Dandy edges the vote having put up her best effort yet when finishing third over C&D last time. That form makes her competitive, and it's not beyond the question that she will improve again, whilst her rider taking off 7 lb will help.
Dundalk 20:05 - Take Cover
The speedy Take Cover is without a win this season but he has been operating at a higher level than this, and he should find this easy five furlongs playing to his strengths. Take Cover showed his trademark early dash in the Group 1 Prix de l'Abbaye last time, but he faced early competition for the lead and couldn't sustain his effort. He's probably in better heart than the bare form of that effort suggests and is worth backing to gain an overdue win.
Dundalk 21:05 - Talented Kid
Talented Kid snapped a long losing run when winning readily under this rider at Navan on Wednesday, and he will prove difficult to beat under a penalty if in similar form. Talented Kid had fallen a long way in the weights prior to Wednesday's race, so he has plenty of scope from this kind of mark now back in form.
