Fran Berry has four best bets under the lights at Dundalk tonight - check out his thoughts.
Magic Fountain is on the drift for the BetVictor Bet 5 Get 30 Offer Maiden at 5.45 and if she gets out to 7/2 or bigger would be of interest. She's a daughter of War Front and rated 71 and I do think her experience will be key here. There's a well-backed newcomer in the race in Blametheshady who apparently won a schooling race at the Curragh a fortnight ago and has been supported accordingly. However the Ballydoyle filly knows what's required and went close on her only previous start here.
Joseph O'Brien can get on the scoresheet too with Numberoneson in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF (C & G) Maiden. Again there's a host of unexposed and well-bred rivals but I thought the selection ran with credit on bad ground over seven furlongs at Leopardstown last time, improving form his debut. He's by Camelot so the step up to a mile on this surface should suit and I'd expect him to hit the frame at least.
The best value on the night looks to be Katiymann in the Floodlit Friday Nights Handicap at 7.45. Mick Halford's filly was drawn out in 14 when fifth here over seven furlongs last time. The step back up a mile is in her favour here and she's fared better with stall three. She's won here twice before and is just a pound above her last winning mark - albeit that was two years ago. I like her draw and she'll have a good pace to aim from it.
Dundalk stalwart Park Row had a great time of it last winter for Denis and Ross Coakley and has won at Dundalk four times. He's nine now but his last winning mark, here in February, was 84 and he's down to 75 this evening. He's been dropped as a consequence of some outings on turf and a couple of spins here, including when he ran well to finish fourth over an inadequate ten furlongs lat time. He's back up to a mile-and-a-half here, will carry the weight, and looks sure to run well.
