Dundalk Preview & Selections. (19/01/2018)

I’ve decided to start doing a feature on the Dundalk cards on Friday evenings and see how it goes. I haven’t really ever done any selections here before and if I have they have been few and far between so It’s going to be somewhat of a learning curve. Here’s what I’ve gone for tomorrow anyhow for anyone that’s interested…


Friday 19th January 2018

5.30 – Shindlers Ark (11/4) (Jockey: G P Halpin (3) – Trainer: G Elliott)

(This one won a Cork maiden hurdle the last day in the stewards room and I think he could take a bit of beating here. He’s ran well over C&D for previous connections and I’d be fairly confident that he can give a bold showing again.)

6.00 – Temasek Star (6/1) (E/W) (Jockey: C J McGovern (3) – Trainer: A McCann)

(Did well throughout the spring and summer months and hasn’t been seen since collecting victory at Leopardstown in July. The trip could be a slight concern as well as his absence but if coming here fit I think he’s a good chance to make the frame.)

6.30 – Zaofu (5/1) (E/W) (Jockey: D O’Brien – Trainer: J P O’Brien) (NB)

(I think there’s still some progressing to do with this one, he’s been progressing steadily so far and I think he can continue said progression here and put in another good run.)

7.30 – Grey Danube (16/1) (E/W) (Jockey: L F Roche – Trainer: D Bunyan)

(Not been at his best as of late but has won several times at this venue including twelve months ago where he was a few pounds higher than today. Got a bit too find on current form mind but just mind edge into the frame at a price.)

8.00 – Canford Art (15/8) (Jockey: K J Manning – Trainer: P Fahey) (NAP)

(Made a great start when winning over 5f here the last day. Got a lot of potential and improving yet to do and should go close again.)
