There is all-weather racing from Dundalk on Friday evening

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Dundalk on Friday evening...

"...could yet have more to offer now up to 1m and is fancied to get off the mark for the in-form Johnny Murtagh yard..."

Timeform on Enchanted One

Strong Johnson - 17:45 Dundalk

Strong Johnson again ran well when second on his most recent outing at Naas, keeping on to be beaten a little over two lengths by the much-improved winner. His consistency is hard to knock, now twice placed from this sort of mark since winning his maiden, and he is fancied to gain a deserved first success in handicaps if continuing in the same vein here. Arcanears also arrives in top form and is feared most ahead of Nigg Bay.

Hannon - 18:15 Dundalk

Grandmaster Flash sets the standard in this maiden but is in danger of becoming frustrating, having filled the runner-up spot in five of his eight career starts to date. He may have to settle for second again here, with preference for Hannon. A fairly useful hurdler, the four-year-old has offered plenty to work on in two Flat starts to date, notably finishing a good second when last seen at Leopardstown in August, and he has the potential to improve past the favourite here.

Enchanted One - 20:15 Dundalk

Enchanted One bounced back to his best when second over six furlongs here last week, no match for the winner but doing enough in his own right to suggest that he is on a fair mark. Campaigned over the sprint trips for most of his career to date, he could yet have more to offer now up to 1m and is fancied to get off the mark for the in-form Johnny Murtagh yard with a defeat of the unexposed Gold Factory.
