There is all-weather racing from Dundalk on Wednesday evening

Timeform pick out their three best bets at Dundalk on Wednesday evening...

"...caught further back than ideal when only just failing to reel in Lyrical Attraction over a slightly shorter trip here 10 days ago..."

Timeform on Esprit de Lumiere

KASBAH - 18:10 Dundalk

KASBAH capitalised on a drop in grade over six furlongs here a week ago and represents by far the most solid proposition in his follow-up bid, for all that the longer trip today ask a slightly different question of him (yet to race beyond seven furlongs in 58 previous starts). Eastern Racer and Weekend Offender both have a bit to prove but are class acts at this level if reviving.

ESPRIT DE LUMIERE - 19:40 Dundalk

ESPRIT DE LUMIERE was caught further back than ideal when only just failing to reel in Lyrical Attraction over a slightly shorter trip here 10 days ago and, 2 lb better off at the weights today, he is taken to turn the tables on Jarlath Fahey's filly. Aidan O'Brien's Whitsunday Islands could also have a say if reacting positvely to blinkers.

CAREFULLY - 20:10 Dundalk

CAREFULLY showed a lot more than previously when seventh in a big-field Leopardstown maiden on her return three weeks ago and, with further progress a distinct possibility, she gets the nod in a maiden lacking depth. Syrena is fully exposed but holds claims on the pick of her form and is feared most ahead of Arabeska, another who remains with potential after only two starts.
