track-bia14s-diary-v2FASHAAR has been off the track since his front-running second at Wolverhampton last July but it could be worth taking a chance on his fitness in the Crowne Plaza Dundalk Race & Stay Apprentice Handicap (5.30).

The son of Showcasing has form figures of 13415 (2-5) at tonight’s venue, improving to 11 (2-2) when drawn in stall six or lower. He’s in stall two tonight and the first of those two wins came after a three-month layoff. Trainer Anthony McCann has saddled a 16-1 winner and 12-1 head second from three runners in the past fortnight and Fashaar will hopefully track the pace, rather than attempt to make the running, as there are plenty of other pace angles in the race .

In the same race I also want to side with hat-trick seeker VICTORIOUS SECRET (stall six). She’s not the easiest ride, needing to be presented as late as possible, but the likely strong gallop will suit and today’s rider coaxed her to victory on her latest outing. Most firms are paying four places and it’s hard to see her being out of the frame.

Jospeh O’Brien’s NUMERIAN had no answer to stablemate Colfer Me in a mile handicap at Dundalk last time but is taken to reverse the form now returned to 7f for the catchily title / Race (6.00). His sire, Holy Roman Emperor, does well with his three-year-olds at this venue over 1m2f or shorter and backing them blind would have returned a profit of £28.67 to a £1 level stake at SP. He was probably unsuited by the first-time cheekpieces when runner-up to Colfer Me last time and the headgear is left off tonight. His old rival is likely to make the running which might not be ideal if the wind, likely to be in their faces as the come around the home bend, is as strong as forecast.
