Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Sizing up a good bet at Fairyhouse

Sizing Codelco can win for Henry De Bromhead
Sizing Codelco can win for Henry De Bromhead

The racing in Ireland comes from Fairyhouse on Wednesday and Timeform provide you with three bets...

Sizing Codelco, sent off at 25/1 at Leopardstown, hinted at possessing ability, finishing sixth in the 17-runner field, and he is entitled to progress markedly...

Is Love Alive sets the standard in the two-and-a-half mile maiden hurdle (13:35) at Fairyhouse and is worth backing to get off the mark. Paul Nolan's five-year-old may not be one of Gigginstown's star performers but he has shown fair form in his three starts over hurdles, enough to indicate that he can win a maiden, and a reproduction of his latest effort, where he finished third at Down Royal, would make him the one to beat. 

Sizing Codelco shaped well on his hurdles debut at Leopardstown and would have leading claims in the two-mile maiden hurdle (14:05) this afternoon if capable of building on that promising introduction. Sizing Codelco, sent off at 25/1 at Leopardstown, hinted at possessing ability, finishing sixth in the 17-runner field, and he is entitled to progress markedly, particularly as he ran as if the experience was needed. This doesn't look like as strong a contest and he can benefit.

Moss Street could be well treated on his handicap bow and he gets the vote in the two-and-a-half mile contest at 14:35. Gordon Elliott's charge, racing on softer ground than previously, showed improved form at Leopardstown, finishing third in a strong juvenile hurdle. The form has been subsequently boosted by Ivan Grozny's easy success at Naas, and Moss Street can take advantage of this lenient mark of 109 on his first start in handicaps.
