Dundalk Preview & Selections. (02/02/2018)

Friday 2nd February 2018


Dundalk is here and despite having some what of a tough introduction i’ve thoroughly been enjoying starting previewing these Friday evening meetings here in the last few weeks. Here are my fancies for this week…

5.00 – Zaofu (6/1) (E/W) (Jockey: S M Crosse (10) – Trainer: J P O’Brien)

(Very disappointing the last two times here after looking promising on debut. I’m not deserting him just yet though and think he’s got a chance to make the frame here with a ten pound claimer on board.)


5.30 – Uncle Henry (5/2) (Jockey: D O’Brien – Trainer: J P O’Brien)

(Won very nicely the last day here and I fancy him to progress here and go close again here. Front runner Sharjah might run a big race at bigger odds too.)


6.00 – Texas Radio (8/1) (E/W) (Jockey: D E Sheehy (5) – Trainer: J Feane)

(I’m actually making myself a bit of a hypocrite putting this one up as I put him up the last day and said that if he didn’t win I struggle to see where he’s going to win. He’s a much bigger price here though and I’ll give him one more chance to get involved.)


6.30 – Bubbly Bellini (14/1) (E/W) (Jockey: R P Downey (3) – Trainer: A McGuiness)

(Taking a chase with the old boy here, he’s not the winning force of old but he’s running off a low mark here that he’s not been at for some time. Big price and might be worth chancing him to sneak into the frame.)


7.00 – Palace Guard (7/4) (Jockey: D O’Brien – Trainer: J P O’Brien) (NB)

(Got his head in front the last day beating War Hero in the process. I think he’ll progress again here and make a bold bid again.)


7.30 – Downdraft (10/11) (Jockey: D O’Brien – Trainer: J P O’Brien) (NAP)

(Drop down in trip a bit of a surprise here as he looks to be more of a middle distance horse however I think he’s more than good enough to be taking this. Showed promise in his last two runs here.)
