Three selections for racing at Dundalk

By Luke

Mid week racing this week comes from the only All weather track in Ireland, Dundalk. An eight race card gets underway at five o’clock.

My first selection is in Race two, the Dundalk Stadium Claiming Race over one mile. The Ado McGuinness trained Master Speaker makes the most appeal. While he may not be in the best form of late, he has a great chance at the weights. His last win came back in July at Killarney when he bet Yuften comfortably giving him a pound, Master Speaker now receives three pounds when you take the riders claim away from Yuften’s allotted weight. I think he will bounce back to form here with Ronan Whelan in the saddle.

Race four is the Book Your Christmas Party At Dundalk Handicap over one mile. Kafu has been running well of late for trainer Ger Lyons. On his penultimate start, he finished second behind Franklyn who has since franked the form, winning twice at Listowel. That race was in July and he wasn’t seen again until earlier this month when he finished second at Dundalk over seven furlongs. He will have come on for the run and will enjoy the step back up to a mile. I think he will go close with Colin Keane in the saddle.

The penultimate race on the card is the Christmas Party Nights At Dundalk Stadium Handicap over seven furlongs. Eacharn has returned to a winnable mark after being rated seventy in January. He has previously won off a mark of sixty three when winning over course and distance last December. He was last seen finishing midfield at the Curragh last week after being off the track since May. I think he will be sharper for the run and will will go close with Andrew Slattery in the saddle.
