Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Sweet to Lord it over rivals

Ruby Walsh rides Sweet My Lord

The Timeform Irish SmartPlays team brings you three selections from Day Two of the Listowel Festival

Sweet My Lord is open to further improvement, and with Ruby Walsh taking over in the saddle he couldn't be in better hands attempting to follow up...

Sweet My Lord made an impressive start to life over fences when scoring cosily at Tramore last month and is fancied to add to his tally in the 16:05. A winning hurdler over this trip last season, Willie Mullin's gelding jumped soundly on his aforementioned debut and had plenty to spare come the finish line. He is open to further improvement, and with Ruby Walsh taking over in the saddle he couldn't be in better hands attempting to follow up.

Rising Time's form may have dropped off over the past few weeks, but she will be hard to beat if getting back to anything near her best in the 16:35. Dropping back into novice company today, she ought to find this easier than the handicap she contested last time and she looks worth chancing.

Finally, Faoilean can give Jim Bolger victory in the concluding 17:35 bumper. The yard has done well in similar events this year, and given his prominence in the betting this morning he is clearly thought capable of making an impact on debut. He can round off the day in good style.
