WEDNESDAY BEST BETS AT DUNDALK – IRISH HORSE RACING TIPS
3:15 Dundalk – Join Us On Instagram @dundalk_stadium Handicap (Div I) (3yo+ 45-75) 1m4f
STORM STEPS was foiled in his hat-trick bid over this course and distance last month but the Footstepsinthesand gelding could be worth chancing to quickly get back to winning ways.
Tim Doyle’s charge was beaten just under two lengths into third in that latest outing where he perhaps wasn’t seen to best effect off the steady pace.
That form has been boosted however by the fifth and he’s only 1lb higher here so it wouldn’t come as a surprise if he were to get back on track with a return to winning ways from the number one stall and there’s a suspicion he is still ahead of the handicapper despite meeting with defeat last time.

SPELGA has been largely consistent this term and the Sir Percy gelding can get back to winning ways having gone close on a couple of occasions recently.
Mick Halford’s charge has finished runner-up twice in recent starts over course and distance, the latest of which came last time out when denied only a half-length behind Storm Steps who could frank that form in the preceding race.
He can compete again here from the same mark and Rory Cleary comes back into the saddle having been apprentice-ridden last time out and every chance he can go close again while it wouldn’t surprise to see him come out on top.

CONOR HOGAN has to prove stamina for this longer trip but Noel Meade’s charge could be worth chancing to see out the additional yardage and get back on the scoresheet.
The Camelot gelding struck here in September over twelve furlongs, beating Clonard Abbey by just over one length and he bounced back from a lesser effort next time to finish a close third back at this venue last time.
That form could receive a boost earlier in the card with both the winner Storm Steps and runner-up Spelga in action in prior contests and he shaped in that contest as if a stiffer test might suit. Assuming his stamina holds out then he can go close from 1lb lower in the weights than last time out.

TIME AND MONEY posted a career-best effort to get off the mark over this course and distance last month and the Epaulette gelding could follow up now he’s got his head in front.
Andrew Oliver’s cahrge had shown some fair form in defeat previously, finishing runner-up in three of his four previous efforts prior to posting a half-length defeat of Koybig latest where he found plenty for pressure.
He’s up 3lbs for that win but there may be more in the locker still to come and he can build on that success to double up in this contest.
