Four selections for Dundalk

By Luke 

Dundalk’s eight race card gets underway at 5:00 with the Irish Stallion EBF Fillies Maiden. I like Closer Now for Jim Bolger. She has only had the one run. She finished fifth in a maiden at the Curragh. That run was in late August, if she is ready I think she will be hard to beat.

Race two off at 5:30

Race two is the Bruce Betting Download the App Handicap over one mile. I like Hasselnott. He has run at Dundalk four times this winter, he hasn’t been out of the first four in those four runs. He won on his first run at Dundalk off a mark of 71, he now runs off a mark of 73. I think he can get his second win at Dundalk in this contest.

Race three off at 6:00

Race three is the Irish Stallion EBF Median Auction Maiden. I like Jered Maddox. He finished second here last time out. That was his first run since November. I think there is improvement to come and this looks a good opportunity for him to go one better.

Race five off at 7:00

Race five is the Carnberg Hotel and Spa Handicap over seven furlongs. I like Very Smart. She has run twice at Dundalk this winter and she has finished third and fourth. She finished a short head behind Crest Of A Wave when receiving 4lb. She still receives 4lb but now also gets another 3lb because of Killian Leonard’s claim.I think this can lead to Very Smart reversing the form.
