Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Monday May 18

Timeform pick out three bets from Roscommon's mixed card
Timeform pick out three bets from Roscommon's mixed card

There's Flat and Jumps action at Roscommon on Monday evening, and Timeform have found the three best bets...


Never Complain showed improved form to notch a first handicap victory at Tipperary last time and he can make light of a rise in the weights to provide in-form trainer Henry de Bromhead with another success..

Roscommon 18:25 - Pat Harkin

Pat Harkin may still be a maiden but he has progressed well of late, unlucky to bump into a couple of big improvers the last twice, and he looks capable of striking from his current mark. Chaplin Bay could do a lot better now handicapping and is one of a host of dangers, but the percentage play is to side with the in-form Pat Harkin.


Roscommon 19:25 - Midfield General

Midfield General has returned in good heart this spring and looks to be on a handy mark on the balance of his form, so he shades the vote now aided by the blinkers. Madeira Classic is lightly-raced for his age and is feared on the back of his Navan success, along with Ceylon, but Jim Bolger's charge makes the most appeal.


Roscommon 20:25 - Never Complain

Never Complain showed improved form to notch a first handicap victory at Tipperary last time and he can make light of a rise in the weights to provide in-form trainer Henry de Bromhead with another success. Fellow last-time-out winners Mr Goodenough and Final Gift should go well again, but Never Complain has plenty in his favour and ought to be difficult to beat.
