Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Row a Definite winner

Ballinrobe plays host to racing on Monday.

Timeform suggest three bets on this evening's card at Ballinrobe...

Katie T and Storm Away (17:40) have both been successful in bumpers, and preference is for the latter who has achieved more in that sphere and also shaped well on her Flat debut last month. Storm Away, a half-sister to the smart hurdler Bahrain Storm, has made a bright start to her career, winning 2 of her 3 starts in bumpers and catching the eye when just behind Cullentry Royal on Flat debut. She remains unexposed and is likely to have more yet to offer.

Definite Row's (19:40) bumper form is decent and, providing she takes to hurdles, she should make a winning debut in this sphere. Via Del Corso and Only Exception rate the main dangers. The four-year-old was much better for her debut when winning bumper at Hexham last month, ultimately with a bit up her sleeve, and she has finished runner-up both subsequent starts in that sphere. She is very much one to consider on her hurdling bow here.

Hold Em Cowboy (20:10) is an intriguing contender on debut for a leading yard here and, if the market speaks in his favour, the hint should be taken. The nine-year-old has been larhely out of sorts since finishing runner-up over fences at Naas in January, but interesting to see whether there is confidence behind him in the betting on debut for Gordon Elliott here.
