Dundalk tips: Hat-trick seeking Bradesco worth waiting for in the finale

Another Friday visit to Dundalk and punters may be best served by waiting for the finale, the Extra Places Everyrday At BetVictor Handicap, for the best betting opportunity, in the shape of the hat-trick-seeking Bradesco.

Luke Comer’s colt made the breakthrough on his all-weather debut earlier this month and followed up despite dropping back four fulongs to a mile and a half. On the more recent occasion, he got up late, and hasn’t been too harsly treated by the handicapper. The return to two miles looks a good move for the four-year-old and this rapidly improving sort can continue his winning run.

Jake Peter is feared most. He has had just five runs on the all-weather, two of which were over today’s trip. He won the first of those two and was runner-up on the other occasion. Ten pounds lower than that defeat, he comes here on the back of a good run in defeat over a mile and a half at this track, and looks sure to put in a bold bid once more.

Je T’ai Porte can get off the mark in the Irishinjuredjockeys.com Fillies’ Maiden. Michael Halford’s three-year-olds etepped up from a promising debut to run second to Big Dream in a maiden over course and distance. She is still learning to settle in her races and if doing so a little better today, she can see off Gudrid.

The latter has earned a rating of 70 for her three outings, the latest of which was a runner-up finish behind Lolly Yeats. Another step up on that will ensure a bold bid once more.

If the last-named is out of luck, her trainer, Joseph O’Brien, should certainly be on the mark with Brostaigh, who will be a short price to finally get off the mark in teh Irish Stallion Farms EBF Fillies/ Maiden.
