Irish SmartPlays: Backers wise to face the Music

Monday's Irish SmartPlays come from Galway.

A new week of Irish SmartPlays kicks off with three selections from Galway...

The step back up in trip this evening holds no fears, and Midnight Music won't be far away if in the same form...

Daigreen accounted for a few of today's rivals at Ballinrobe last month and looks worth supporting in the 16:35. Possibly finding the race coming too soon when only fifth attempting to land the hat-trick at Killarney eleven days ago (had raced two days prior to that), the short break since should see him right for this. He looks capable of rewarding backers at fair morning odds.

An hour later on the card and Antiquus can hopefully add to Joanna Morgan's tally for the day in the 17:35. Travelling powerfully before fading back from a break here last month, the Footstepsinthesand filly should be spot on for this and is fancied to score her first win of the season back down at seven furlongs.

Finally, the feature 18:05 listed Oyster stakes can go the way of Midnight Music. The daughter of Dubawi has done little wrong in five starts this term, winning an amateur event here in July and third in a similar event as this over nine-and-a-half furlongs at Gowran last time. The step back up in trip this evening holds no fears, and she won't be far away if in the same form.
