IRISH RACING TIPS – DUNDALK BEST BETS ON MONDAY 9 NOVEMBER
2:00 Dundalk – Irishinjuredjockeys.com Claiming Race (3yo+) 1m2½f
LADY DE VESCI won this race twelve months ago and the Approve mare might be able to double up.
Mick Halford’s runners at this venue are always worthy of respect and his runner in this contest has largely acquitted herself well this term, getting back to winning ways at Navan in September and she was last seen finishing third to Gee Rex over this course and distance last month.
She didn’t help her chances by rearing up as the stalls opened and she might have used a little more petrol than ideal; but that form has been boosted with the winner and runner-up both scoring since and she can resume winning ways here.
3:05 Dundalk – DundalkStadium.com Handicap (3yo+ 45-65) 2m
AASLEAGH FAWN is none too consistent but the Kalanisi mare is capable when in the mood as she showed when winning twice last term and making the frame on a number of other occasions.
Gavin Cromwell’s charge has made the frame twice this campaign and she hinted that her turn might not be too far away when finishing three lengths’ sixth behind Caridadi here last month, hampered but holding every chance before finding only one pace.
The handicapper has eased her another 1lb in the handicap and she could well take advantage if finding some improvement stepped up markedly in trip with the booking of Shane Foley catching the eye.
3:40 Dundalk – HOLLYWOODBETS Maiden (Plus 10 Race) (2yo) 6f
PROVOCATEUSE has shaped nicely on both her starts to date and the Pride Of Dubai filly can get off the mark at the third attempt.
Jessica Harrington’s charge showed plenty on her debut when beaten just over one length behind Lady Princess at Bellewstown back in August where she was undone by inexperience having missed the break and then running green under pressure.
Third placed Grammata beat her next time at Tipperary where she again messed up the start; but she travelled well in the contest but was just unable to get past the game winner.
It might be that this extra furlong might unlock some further improvement and freshened up following a break she can deliver a big run to get off the mark.
