Friday 16th February 2018


Another Friday at Dundalk lies ahead and as ever it’s another massively competitive card. You might of noticed a lot of my previews and articles have been focusing more on the Flat & All Weather action as of late and it’s merely because i’m one of the rare breeds that prefers the flat. I’ll still be featuring the big weekend meetings over the jumps.

6.00 – Flawlessly (6/1) (E/W) (Jockey: R P Whelan – Trainer: Ms S Lavery)

(Reliable around here and won over this trip a couple of starts again. Decent enough draw to suggest she should go well ago.)


6.30 – Port Lions (1/2) (Jockey: P J Smullen – Trainer: M Halford)

(If he can’t win this then I don’t think he’ll ever win. Beaten favourite the last few times and this really is last chance saloon.)


7.00 – War Room (12/1) (E/W) (Jockey: G P Halpin (3) – Trainer: S M Duffy)

(Won here off a stone lighter a year ago and has won before from seemingly difficult draws. May well get into the frame at a decent price.)


7.30 – Togoville (9/4) (Jockey: P J Smullen – Trainer: A McCann)

(Just touched off the last day here and with Smullen now booked a big run could well be on the cards.)


8.00 – Zaofu (8/1) (E/W) (Jockey: W M Lordan – Trainer: J P O’Brien)

(Put him up the last few times and he’s been running respectably. Travelled well the last day over two miles and this could be his optimum trip.)


8.30 – Los Alamos (7/2) (Jockey: D O’Brien – Trainer: J P O’Brien)

(Looks impressive on paper and ran respectably the last day in a decent hurdle contest. Should be thereabouts here.)


NAP: Los Alamos – 8.30

NB: War Room – 7.00
