Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Saturday December 20

Timeform provide you with three bets from Fairyhouse
Timeform provide you with three bets from Fairyhouse

Un de Sceaux is the star on show at Fairyhouse, but Timeform look to the other races to highlight the best bets...

Fairyhouse 12:35 - Noble Emperor

Noble Emperor finished behind Thunder And Roses when they chased home a pair of smart prospects last time, but Tony Martin's lightly-raced charge was by no means knocked about and ought to improve significantly for the outing. A winner on both starts over hurdles last season - when he displayed a useful level of form - Noble Emperor looks likely to stay the three-mile trip and could prove difficult to beat.

Fairyhouse 14:10 - Skehana Bridge

Skehana Bridge arrives on the back of a good effort at Thurles and is likely to be a big player if improving upon that performance. That Thurles second represented a career-best run from Skehana Bridge and he seems to be going the right way at present, so has to be respected from his lowly mark. 

Fairyhouse 14:45 - Dactik

Dactik is on a lengthy losing run at present - last successful at this course in February 2013 - but he ran better than for a while when coming home fifth over C&D last time, and could offer a spot of value. The booking of star claimer Johnny Burke also catches the eye and this could just be the day where Dactik cashes in from his reduced mark.
