Timeform pick out three bets from Dundalk on Friday.


Our Rachel - Dundalk 17:30

The first division of the mile-and-a-half handicap can go to Our Rachelm, who shaped better than the result when sixth in big-field handicaps on her last two Flat starts (third over hurdles in between), faring best of those held up over C&D on latest. Tony Martin's five-year-old mare is yet to get her head in front, but she's Timeform top rated for this race and drawn low, so today could be her day.

Free State - Dundalk 18:00

The second division is probably the better race, with a couple of last-time out course winners in the field, and they look the two to concentrate on. Free State just gets the nod as he did well to get up after conceding first run to Mosman and Six Silver Lane two weeks ago and a 2 lb rise doesn't look enough to stop him going in again (he's run well previously off a 10 lb higher mark).

Easy Boy - Dundalk 19:00

Easy Boy won a 14-runner handicap over this C&D in December, and he was possible unlucky not to follow up, again over this C&D, when one and a half lengths fifth of 13 to Try Again last time. Easy Boy finished with running left after being forced to switch from a furlong out, and he must rate a serious player again this evening. Off the same mark as for this latest start, he's Timeform top rated, while Pat Smullen taking over in the saddle is no bad thing either.
