Tonight's racing: three to watch at Dundalk and Wolverhampton
It is Friday and time for Wolverhampton and Dundalk to keep punters warm after dark and here are three interesting runners to look out for . . .
Palace Guard(7.00 Dundalk)
Brothers Joseph (five wins from 15 runners at the track this year) and Donnacha O'Brien (three from five) have given Dundalk regulars plenty to cheer about this winter and have another strong hand at tonight's meeting if the betting is to be believed.
Palace Guard made a winning handicap debut at the track three weeks ago and the son of Shamardal steps up a furlong in trip. He is reopposed by placed horses War Hero and Patrick Joseph, who are on slightly better weight terms, but punters have piled into Palace Guard.
Outlaw Torn(7.45 Wolverhampton)
This nine-year-old needs no introduction as he runs for the 162nd time and tonight he bids to add to his 17 career wins.
Apprentice Ben Sanderson steered him to win at Chelmsford last time and Outlaw Torn won overat this track last February.
Drawn in three, his 11 rivals might have to be lively to the veteran jumping and trying to make all, as he remains a tearaway at heart.
Light From Mars(8.15 Wolverhampton)
This 13-year-old has not won for two years, but has won three times over the course and distance, although not since the Tapeta surface was laid.
He has done all his winning on the Polytrack both on the old track here at Wolverhampton and at Kempton.
While trainer Ron Harris is searching for his first winner of 2018, Light For Mars has a confident young man in the saddle with Jason Watson having ridden his sixth winner of the year when getting Miss Minuty up on the line in the 1.30 at Lingfield earlier on.
