RACE PREVIEW & TIPS (FRIDAY)

18:00 Dundalk The Edward Lynam trained Masalai looks the one to be with here in a tricky contest. The 5yo’s only career win in twelve starts came over course and distance off of a similar mark to the one he now carries. He ran into a decent fourth place here over course and distance last time out 14 days ago and that was a decent performance on his first run since June. That outing should have him spot on for this one tonight and he gets the nod to land the spoils with the talented Oisin Orr taking off 3lb from the saddle. Jim Bolger’s runners always merit respect and it is no different here so his 5yo Latchet would rate as the main danger having won two starts back and had excuses for his last run.  MASALAI (WIN) – NAP
