Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Seefood on the menu

Away We Go makes his debut for Willie Mullins

Tuesday's trio of Irish SmartPlays come from Fairyhouse.

"Away We Go makes solid appeal for the champion trainer this afternoon given that he reappears off a much lower hurdles mark as compared to his chasing exploits..."

Seefood looks a viable alternative to likely favourite War Correspondant in the 15:05 maiden hurdle. Dessie Hughes's gelding showed useful form in bumpers earlier in the year and didn't need to improve to get off the mark in that sphere at Clonmel last month, staying on well. A runner-up on his sole start over timber previous to that, he travelled well that day and had to wait for gap before the last, ultimately not knocked about. At morning prices he looks worth a play to go one better.

An hour later on the card and Away We Go is fancied to make a winning start for Willie Mullins in the 16:05 handicap hurdle. A fair performer over hurdles and fairly useful over fences for Timothy Cleary, the son of Stowaway hasn't been seen since finishing tailed off in a valuable three mile handicap chase at Navan last November. Nevertheless, he makes solid appeal for the champion trainer this afternoon given that he reappears off a much lower hurdles mark as compared to his chasing exploits, and with trip and conditions no problem he should take plenty of beating.

Finally, Notorious Villain can round off the day in good style for backers in the 16:35 two mile Flat race. The Beneficial gelding made a promising start when runner-up over course-and-distance earlier in the month, travelling fluently and responding well to pull clear of the rest of the field, and looks capable of going one better this time given the benefit of that experience. He is another who looks somewhat overpriced in relation to the market leader on what has been shown on the track, and is worth an investment accordingly.
