Dundalk Preview & Selections. (26/01/2018)


Friday 26th January 2018

Another Friday card at Dundalk is upon us and i’m looking forward to getting stuck into it again after somewhat of a tough introduction to it all last week. Am I over last week’s NAP Canford Art getting beat after looking the clear winner and trading at something daft in play? Absolutely yeah, why would’ve I brought it up if I clearly wasn’t over it…. Anyway here are this week’s fancies….

5.00 – Oneoveryou (2/1) (Jockey: B M Coen (7) – Trainer: M Fahey)

(Generally does well at this venue and has put in some good efforts over course and distance lately. Likely to handle the trip better than some of these and i’d be surprised if a bold showing wasn’t put on.)

6.00 – Clear Skies (9/4) (Jockey: D O’Brien – Trainer: A P O’Brien) 

(She became somewhat of the Queen of Dundalk before Christmas winning four on the spin and I think she can get back to winning ways here. Wooster appears to be the main danger.)

6.30 – Alcatraz (5/1) (E/W) (Jockey: W M Lordan – Trainer: R O’Brien)

(Slowly away again the last day but stayed on well enough to grab third. Should be there or thereabouts again here and might well go one better if getting a better start.)

7.30 – Nigg Bay (11/2) (E/W) (Jockey: D W O’Connor – Trainer: J F Levins)

(Should appreciate this step up to seven after a few decent attempts at shorter. This is a race that probably won’t take that much winning and this one could well be thereabouts.)

8.00 – Texas Radio (2/1) (Jockey: G P Halpin (3) – Trainer: J Feane) (NB)

(Gone close the last two times off a lowly mark here. If he can’t get his nose in front here I struggle to see where the win is going to come from.)

8.30 – Fastidious (4/1) (Jockey: T M Sherry (10) – Trainer: M O’Callaghan) (NAP)

(Does well here over this trip and was unlucky here a couple of weeks back, he’s a bit hit and miss as of late but has got a very good draw and should go well today.)
