Timeform bring you three tips from Dundalk on Friday...

"The handicapper has taken a chance by letting her race off the same mark here and she can add to her C&D win in October."

Honor Oak - 18:30 Dundalk

Honor Oak was a good second at this track last time and would probably have given the winner more of a race, had she been asked to deliver her challenge a bit sooner. The handicapper has taken a chance by letting her race off the same mark here and she can add to her C&D win in October. Brokopondo ran as if a return to this trip would be in his favour last time, and looks to be the biggest threat.

Stone Mountain - 20:00 Dundalk

Stone Mountain got off the mark in style on his most recent start and appeared to relish the step up to this trip. He was value for more than the winning margin that day and, although he meets Spruce Meadows on 5 lb worse terms here, he looks progressive and can uphold that form. That former rival looks the main danger to the selection here, especially if the first-time cheekpieces have a positive effect.

Tom Dooley - 21:00 Dundalk

Tom Dooley has returned to some kind of form since joining the J.J. Feane yard, and deserves extra credit for the way he performed last time, when forced to race wider than ideal. He has won off higher marks than this in the past and could well regain the winning thread here. Last-time-out winner Sister Slew is another to have benefited from some respite from the handicapper this season, and could give the selection most to do in a competitive heat.
