Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Friday August 30

Gordon Elliott is fancied to have a winner tonight

Jumps action from Killarney is on the agenda this evening...

"Fisher Bridge has been in good form through most of the summer and can gain his reward today."

We start with the handicap hurdle at 17:50, though it's chase form we're more interested in. Gift of Dgab developed into a near-smart performer over fences a couple of seasons back and although he's got an absence to overcome, he could be worth chancing off this mark back over hurdles. Dingaling and Another Rebel are others to consider in a competitive event.

Cause of Causes (18:50) developed into a smart novice hurdler last term, winning five times including the Ladbroke at Ascot. He caught the eye on his second run over fences before finishing mid-field in the Galway Hurdle. He holds leading claims and can open his chasing account here from Owega Star and Caolaneoin.

The 19:20 is a Grade C handicap chase and is accordingly competitive, with Toner d'Oudairies, Another Ambition and Theshowisover all last-time-out winners with claims that would be ranked as outstanding in everyday company. However, Fisher Bridge, who chased home Double Seven at Kilbeggan earlier this month, gets the nod raised just 3 lb for that fine effort. He's been in good form through most of the summer and can gain his reward today.
