Jason Weaver: There’s no chance of us dancing alone tonight if this 5/1 shot comes in at Dundalk

The Shark is back! After a Christmas of turkey and tins of Roses, At The Races' Jason Weaver has returned with his top tips from Dundalk and Wolverhampton

Jason Weaver

4.55pm Dundalk: Aggression (11/2)

Aggression brings in a solid All-Weather profile having won here on debut and three back over course and distance. For whatever reason he never got into it on his latest run but that is his only blip after six races to date. He is still open to improve and a reproduction off his run when disqualified would be good enough in this company.

6.30pm Dundalk: Dance Alone (5/1)

Trainer Damian English can turn a pig’s ear into a silk purse and is in the process with this gelding. Four races for Damian and he looks very much on an upward curve, going close over 5f, winning over 7f and going close over a mile last time. He’s back to the long sprint of 7f and he looks poised for another big run.

8.30pm Dundalk: Spirit of Time (11/2)

Obviously Spirit of Time is not easy to train as he makes only his seventh race today. So far he’s been kept down at 7f and a mile and has run close on his last try when only getting going too late. He looks tailor made for the step up in trip being out of a French listed winner over a mile and five furlongs and his handicap mark could prove very lenient.

7.15pm Wolverhampton: Mybrotherjohnny (7/1)

Mybrotherjohnny won’t need to be much quicker than Paddy Power now starting off handicapping down on a mark of 45. He’s taking a big jump up in trip having run over 10f, 8f and 7f but trainer Fergal O’Brien is hot right now and it’s his first run for the team. It will be no surprise if he bolts up in what is a very winnable contest.


8.15pm Wolverhampton: The Last Debutante (9/4)

The Last Debutante had three very quick qualifying runs in less than a month from November 16 to December 12 and looked very much in need of being given a bit of time off. He’s out of a good mare that Mark Johnstone trained to win an All-Weather Listed contest and she looks thrown in off 66. She had an awful wide trip last time in a tougher race than this (finishing seventh) and she is just the type to put together a winning sequence.
