A high-quality card at Leopardstown on Sunday gets the attention of Timeform's SmartPlays team.
"Rock The World was undone by a late blunder when second to Shantou Ed here over Christmas and leaves the impression he has a bigger effort in his locker."
Crystal Pearl - 12:50 Leopardstown
Crystal Pearl bumped into useful prospect Vercingetorix on last month's hurdling debut at Limerick and may go one place better here. Recent bumper winner Bonny Kate should do well in this sphere, while Golan Road will go close if matching the form of his last run.
Byerley Babe - 14:20 Leopardstown
It's been a year since Byerley Babe last tasted success in a Thurles Grade 2, but she hinted at better to come when third at Fairyhouse in November and gets the nod with McCoy booked/fitted with a first-time hood. Foxrock went close in last month's Paddy Power and should be in the mix again, while He'llberemembered is only 2 lb higher than when successful in this race 12 months ago.
Rock The World - 14:50 Leopardstown
Rock The World was undone by a late blunder when second to Shantou Ed here over Christmas and leaves the impression he has a bigger effort in his locker. He could be the answer to another renewal of this always-hot handicap. His old rival should be on the premises again along with another JP McManus runner Snake Eyes, with Clondaw Warrior also considered after two good efforts in Britain.
