The Racing Post take us through the card at Dundalk and offer up their NAP and the big-value play, Characteristic.

Dundalk-Races

Comments

16:25 Gee Rex

On paper, an exceptional claimer, but no doubt the market will clarify the questionable expectations of those rated high. The two most solid appear to be the thriving Angel Palanas and something of an unlikely hero in GEE REX, bidding to make it win number four for the stable. Both have the help of leading apprentices.

16:55 Characteristic

Sherzando is greatly feared after his over-the-top assault here Friday, which implied he could build up a sequence here this winter. CHARACTERISTIC has the help of Robbie Colgan and is afforded narrow preference at the prices for rookie trainer Liam O’Brien in a cracking handicap.

17:30 Hype

A fascinating maiden, the newcomers Alessandro Algardi and Blue Planet hugely interesting. HYPE and Stardayz could fight it out, with the colt narrowly preferred.

18:00 Tipperary Moon

Having finished close to improving sorts the last twice here, TIPPERARY MOON can break his duck today. Cappella Liath is interesting on his second handicap start and up in trip but is unraced on this surface. Tyrconnell and Tribal Path can be relied upon to run their races.

18:30 Alice Milligan

Dropping back to this trip could see ALICE MILLIGAN get off the mark as she usually displays good early speed, notably at Tipperary last time. Accessory and Linus Larrabee look likely to give their running, while Silverback Jack could go well on this surface

19:00 Rock The Barzah (NAP)

It’s a bit of a concern how cheap ROCK THE BARZAH (nap) was at the breeze-up sales given her pedigree but she looks value after a nice introduction and should win this or go close. Lightning Boltz has forecast potential.

19:30 Storm Steps

He hasn’t been far away on all his starts here, so STORM STEPS can finally get off the mark in a modest-looking contest. Moonmeister ran well in a claimer here last time and will go well, while Ragtime Red and Odd Venture are considered.

20:00 Prime Chief

Lucky Phil will be interesting here if she gets in, but the obvious starting point is PRIME CHIEF. The latter landed a nice touch when winning at Cork and whilst 8lb higher here, he ticks a lot the right boxes. That said, preference is for MARICRUZ. A three-time winner, she was not disgraced on her recent visit to Leopardstown, and looks well primed now to have a good crack at it off a much more lenient mark here, with Colin Keane also a notable booking.
