Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Friday July 26

There are two meetings in Ireland this evening

Our Irish team pick out three bets from Wexford and Down Royal...

"The fairly well-bred Keep It Clean is still open to some improvement after just four starts..."

Selections one and two come from County Down, starting with the seven-furlong handicap at 18:45. Target Acquired was all out to open his account at Cork in June but has run well in defeat since. He should make another bold bid despite creeping up the weights and is marginally preferred to Toccata Blue and How Splendid in a fair race of its type.

Second stop in the North is the fillies' handicap an hour later. The fairly well-bred Keep It Clean is still open to some improvement after just four starts and she is taken to get the better of Saratoga Baby and Keeping on her first run in a turf handicap.

We change to Wexford for our final selection, which runs in their final race at 20:35. Fitzgutentyte was in good form over hurdles this spring, winning here over two miles then finishing second at Down Royal. Lower chase mark is justified, but she is a sporting bet to take advantage given recent efforts over timber, with Banna Beach Like The Da the main dangers after sound reappearance runs.
