Timeform Irish SmartPlays: A Golden opportunity for Cache

There's racing from Sligo this evening and Timeform suggest three bets...

This is by no means a strong contest and Cacheofgold sets the standard based on her Tramore third where she stayed on in good fashion...


Cacheofgold won her only completed start in Points and has shown fair form over hurdles, finishing third on her two most recent outings, so she makes plenty of appeal in the two-mile maiden hurdle at 18:30. This is by no means a strong contest and Cacheofgold sets the standard based on her Tramore third where she stayed on in good fashion. She was a bit below that level at Kilbeggan last time but the testing ground this evening will put the emphasis more on stamina and she can get off the mark.

Shantou Flyer may well be better suited by further than today's two-mile trip, but he is progressive and sets a decent standard, so should be difficult to beat in the 19:00. Colin Bowe's four-year-old showed improved form to get off the mark when winning a 21.5f maiden hurdle at Downpatrick, forging clear in the closing stages to win by nine and a half lengths, and looks the type to do better still. The drop back to the minimum trip is clearly a concern given the way he powered clear at Downpatrick, but he has the best chance on form and should be progressive enough to overcome a less-than-ideal trip. 

Back To Bracka caught the eye in no uncertain terms on his hurdling debut at Limerick, finishing well in fifth under a considerate ride, and he should be capable of getting off the mark in this sphere by winning the two-and-a-half mile maiden hurdle at 20:00. A fairly useful performer in bumpers, where he managed to win at Galway, Back To Bracka could well reach a higher level over hurdles based on his encouraging introduction at Limerick, and he is capable of displaying significant improvement this evening.
