Timeform pick out three bets from Dundalk on Wednesday evening.

"He may well be capable of further progress despite a wide draw here."

Ishebayorgrey - Dundalk 18:30

Almadaa won this race last year from 3 lb higher in the weights and it is easy to see why he has been well supported throughout the morning, but Ishebayorgrey - a three-timer winner at this track - has less miles on the clock than the current favourite and has been in good heart on his last three visits here, so could be worth siding with under Kevin Manning, with this drop back in trip no negative (winner over C&D).

Sea of Blue - Dundalk 19:30

Sea of Blue has really got the hang of things lately, showing improved form to win two of his last three starts at this venue, including over this C&D, and after posting another career-best effort on his most recent start, he may well be capable of further progress despite a wide draw here. Current favourite Locus Standi went close here last time and looks to be the obvious danger to the selection.

Our Manekineko - Dundalk 21:00

It is interesting to see Pat Smullen retaking the ride on Our Manekineko (won when on-board in 2013) on the back of his promising second over C&D here earlier this month after a three month break. Our Manekineko has not won for some time, but is slipping in the weights as a result (has won off a 5 lb higher mark) and is worth chancing here on the back of his last effort in what looks a weak affair. Tansanite looks one of the biggest dangers but may well benefit from some headgear.
