Oddschecker tips for every race at Dundalk on Thursday.
EOS is far from one of the stars in the Magnier silks, but she put in a career best performance at Naas five days ago when second and it must be worth noting that the three-year-old is turned back out so quickly. The Declaration Of War filly represents a handler in decent form and could have too much for Steelriver, who should appreciate this step up in distance, and Poetic Light, who may well appreciate the application of first-time blinkers.Prediction : 1st Eos 2nd Steelriver 3rd Poetic Light
Indianapolis failed to beat a rival home on debut here last time but should have come on markedly for the experience and drops in distance now, while Cloak Of Darkness is related to some nice types but does wear a hood on debut. Nexxia might be one to follow in handicap company down the line, and WOULD BE KING looks sure to go well. Deemed good enough to run in the Irish 2,000 Guineas last time, this is a big drop in grade for the three-year-old, who also has form behind Brother Bear, The Pentagon and Gustav Klimt.Prediction : 1st Would Be King 2nd Indianapolis 3rd Cloak Of Darkness
PEDISNAP ran creditably in defeat on turf at Limerick last time and is expected to do better back on Polytrack off 1lb lower. A draw in stall 10 is a slight negative, but the four-year-old looks open to more improvement than the likes of Beau Satchel, who might be using this to prepare for a tilt at Galway later in the month. Shelbe should go well with the champion jockey on board, while Nisior Donn looks to be going the right way for Gavin Cromwell.Prediction : 1st Pedisnap 2nd Nisior Donn 3rd Shelbe
WAITINGFORTHEDAY looked on good terms with herself when scoring over 6f at Fairyhouse last time and may be able to defy an 8lb rise now granted this additional furlong. 1m course winner Queen Rabab has been knocking on the door over that same trip on turf and has claims now cutting back in distance, while recent Roscommon claimer winner Innamorare and the reliable Beau Rocko, who was third behind the selection at Fairyhouse, both have place possibilities.Prediction : 1st Waitingfortheday 2nd Queen Rabab 3rd Innamorare
DALI needs to better the level of form he showed when finishing down the field in the Rockingham latest but makes more appeal on his preceding Listed victory at Naas. A mark of 99 is likely to be within his capabilities and he's well drawn to attack from stall two. Golden Spell is 5lb higher than when winning at Navan in the spring but has held his form well in stronger races recently. Togoville has won 10 times on the all-weather and is another who remains on a workable mark.Prediction : 1st Dali 2nd Golden Spell 3rd Togoville
FRANKINCENSE failed to go on from his debut effort when disappointing on soft ground at the Curragh back in May but he returns with a first-time tongue-tie and should be ideally suited by his first attempt on the surface. Stella D'oro cost $250,000 at the Keeneland Yearlings Sale and has to be respected on his debut for Joseph O'Brien, while Wishing Star can benefit for the step up in trip having finished third in a handicap at Gowran last time.Prediction : 1st Frankincense 2nd Stella Doro 3rd Wishing Star
TEMASEK STAR had been knocking on the door on turf before winning with plenty in hand back on the all-weather at Wolverhampton on his latest start. He has a 6lb penalty to overcome but the manner of that success suggests he can defy it. Easy Boy bounced back to form when second on his latest outing at Tipperary and has good course form to boast, while Lucky Red could have more to offer tackling 1m4f having placed twice over 1m2f at Down Royal and Ayr recently.Prediction : 1st Temasek Star 2nd Easy Boy 3rd Lucky Red
