Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Saturday October 31
There's a high-class card at Down Royal on Saturday and Timeform have identified three bets for you.
Colms Dream is improving in leaps and bounds at present and he had few problems completing the hat-trick at Punchestown four days ago.
Down Royal 12:35 - Missy Tata
Missy Tata sets the standard based on the form she showed in France in the spring, and she is of obvious interest having joined the powerful Gordon Elliott yard. Lake Champlain and Tiliver are a pair of interesting opponents, but Missy Tata receives a significant amount of weight and is open to plenty of improvement for her new yard, so she gets the nod.
Down Royal 13:40 - Diamond King
Diamond King disappointed on both outings last season, but he's moved from Donald McCain to Gordon Elliott and may be capable of bouncing back. Diamond King looked set for big things when twice running out a wide-margin winner in bumpers, and he took well to hurdling during his novice season, winning two of his three starts. He looks fairly treated on his first outing for Gordon Elliott and could prove difficult to beat if operating at the top of his game.
Down Royal 15:15 - Colms Dream
Colms Dream is improving in leaps and bounds at present and he had few problems completing the hat-trick at Punchestown four days ago. Karl Thornton's thriving chaser has to defy a 4 lb penalty, but that shouldn't be an issue based on the ease of Tuesday's win, and he can extend his winning sequence.
