Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Bolger set to boss Wexford

Jim Bolger trains all three of today's bets.

Timeform advise three bets on this afternoon's card at Wexford...

"Night Invader could clearly still have more to come and got to be high on the shortlist..."

Sceilg (14:50) has been banging against the door in handicaps of late and she could be the one to beat now her sights are lowered a little. Madam Mo wasn't at her best last time but she still warrants consideration in this field and can provide the biggest threat to the selection. The three-year-old has improved in handicaps this term, placed on her last 4 starts. Shouldn't have any problem with these conditions and leading contender. Blinkers replace cheekpieces this time.

Something Graceful (16:00) should ensure that Benbecula is unable to get an easy time in front, and she can wear the topweight down in the latter stages. Akinspirit is better than he showed last time, and can improve on last year's fourth in this corresponding event. The four-year-old stuck on well to win 20-runner Leopardstown maiden (1¼m) last August. Creditable efforts to make the frame on last 4 starts in handicaps, and will ensure that Benbecula doesn't get an easy lead.

Night Invader (17:10) is much the least exposed here and is taken to go one better than his Leopardstown reappearance. Bobskier is worth another chance to confirm her Tramore improvement, with Gra Geal Mo Chroi also making the shortlist. The four-year-old left last year's form  behind when runner-up in 1¾m Leopardsotwon handicap on reappearance. Could clearly still have more to come and got to be high on the shortlist.
