Timeform pick out three bets from Dundalk on Friday evening.


Magic Bear - Dundalk 17:30

Magic Bear showed plenty of ability when second on his racecourse debut at Navan three weeks ago, travelling smoothly into contention as the field entered the final two furlongs and simply finding his more-experienced stablemate too good on the day. That form gives him something to find with Sufoof on Timeform ratings, but Magic Bear is entitled to improve with that initial experience under his belt and is expected to open his account at the second time of asking.

Colour Blue - Dundalk 19:30

Colour Blue showed improved form when successful on her penultimate outing at Leopardstown and shaped as if still in good heart when fifth in this grade at Ascot last time. She was arguably unlucky not to finish closer than the five lengths she was beaten on that occasion (carried left in the final two furlongs) and should prove extremely difficult to beat if reproducing her useful best here, with the improving Kadra feared most for the in-form Mick Halford yard.

Not A Bad Oul Day - Dundalk 20:00

Not A Bad Oul Day was strong in the betting and returned to something like his best form when second on debut for John James Feane at Gowran Park 10 days ago. That effort gives him the edge over Celeste de la Mer on Timeform ratings here and, with the yard's runners continuing to go well in recent weeks, Not A Bad Oul Day is taken to confirm the promise of that latest outing and can record his first victory since last May with a defeat of the unexposed Veil of Stars.
