Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Saturday November 22

Racing comes from Gowran Park on Saturday
Racing comes from Gowran Park on Saturday

Timeform's Irish team advise three bets from Gowran Park on Saturday...

"Kennoway ran a fair race on his reappearance last year and acquitted himself with credit when second over a further distance at this venue in February..."

Gowran Park 13:35 - Henry Higgins

The first contest under consideration is a novices' hurdle over the minimum trip and Henry Higgins was not seen to best effect at Naas last time and given that he has scored comfortably at this track previously, looks a value alternative in an otherwise one-sided contest. The market will prove informative for the Mullins and Gigginstown runners, but the selection is excellent value for the competitive chance he has on form. 

Gowran Park 14:10 - Circe's Island

The next bet of the day comes in a mares' handicap hurdle over two miles and Circe's Island looked to have plenty in hand when landing a novices' hurdle at Limerick in May when last seen. She is taken to make a winning return to action for Thomas Gibney and Adrian Heskin in what looks an otherwise open renewal. 

Gowran Park 15:55 - Kennoway

We will round off proceedings with a handicap chase over 18 furlongs and the one for our money is Kennoway. He ran a fair race on his reappearance last year and acquitted himself with credit when second over a further distance at this venue in February. The handicapper has given him a chance and he is worth chancing with the drop back to today's trip sure to be in his favour.
