Dundalk Friday Night Tips

5.15 Capel At Dawn 1/2 pt ew @ 6’1 William Hill – showed improved form on the second run to finish a close third in a Naas auction maiden, the form of which is decent (winner fourth in a Group 2); debut for this powerful yard and can go well, even after her absence

5.45 Sheranda 1pt win @ 13’8 General Price – Well-bred filly has run to a similar level in three starts in maidens at Cork, Listowel and the Curragh, with the latter two on soft ground over 1m when weakened late on; the drop to this trip should suit and has the highest rating in the field so is the one to beat

6.15 Loaded 3/4pt ew @ 11’2 BetVictor 4 places (NB) – Three wins for Andrew Balding before being sold to race in Hong Kong but he failed to win a race out there and was repatriated by his breeder; two solid efforts in defeat here the last twice off 3lb higher marks and shouldn’t be far away again today

6.45 Khafaaq 1/2 pt ew @ 11’2 BetVictor 4 places – Solid run over C&D two starts ago but was not as good over 1m last time; the drop in trip is a plus and he should be capable of getting involved

7.15 Numberoneson 1pt win @ 3’1 General Price – Beaten about 8l both starts but better form latest on soft terrain at Leopardstown, just denied third; leading contender for top stable; half-brother to AW winner

7.45 Katiymann 1/2 pt ew @ 6’1 Betway 4 places – Better for wind operation this summer; knows Dundalk well and C&D winner’s stable among winners here Wednesday; made nice late gains over 7f here latest; has won off this rating

8.15 Park Row 1pt ew @ 11’2 BetVictor 4 places (NAP) – Dundalk specialist gradually coming to hand and excellent draw for one who likes to get on with it (taken on in attack latest behind Cautious Approach; second beaten a head at 13-8 since); yard form a further positive; must go close

8.45 Taliyna 1/2 pt ew @ 8’1 BetVictor 4 places – Appeals as the type to prosper at 1m2f+ for top trainer; looks well-handicapped after showing promise on Turf; fascinating runner from good draw
