• Dundalk - Friday

    Take top-weight Naturea to win at Dundalk

    Lusis Naturea ran his best race for a while last Friday night and the eight-year-old can credit trainer Caroline McCaldin with her first winner in the Killowen Contracts Handicap at Dundalk tonight.

    Twice a winner at the track for Noel Kelly in early 2016, Lusis Naturea bounced back to form when a narrow runner-up to the gambled-on Yarraman over the extended ten furlongs a week ago. He finished ahead of three of tonight’s rival and might just go a place better now as he goes back up in distance.

    Nigg Bay also took second spot in his race at the venue last week and he too can make a return to the winners’ enclosure in the opening Crowne Plaza Race And Stay Handicap. He had Ty Rock Brandy behind him when just losing out to the admirable Togoville and looks a leading player despite running from the widest stall.

    Georgian Bay is certainly the one to beat in the Ace Casino Kildare Town Claiming Race. He was a winner here late last year and again in January and his most recent form also reads well, having run nicely behind Sheisdiesel in a similar race to this at the beginning of last month and again when fifth in a good handicap over a mile three weeks ago.

    Masalai can back up his success over a mile here a month ago as he goes up in distance for the Ready Mix Concrete Handicap and another dual course winner taken to show up well is Gougane Barra which can benefit from the extra furlong to win the Marshes Shopping Centre Ladies Day Sunday April 14 Handicap.

    Selections: 5.15 Nigg Bay; 5.45 Georgian Bay; 6.15 Masalai; 6.45 Lusis Naturea (NAP); 7.15 Kafu; 7.45 Iseebreeze; 8.15 Gougane Barra; 8.45 Cuban Hope.
