Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Sunday December 21

Timeform's three bets on Sunday come from Thurles
Timeform's three bets on Sunday come from Thurles

There's racing at Thurles on Sunday and Timeform provide you with three bets...

Thurles 12:50 - Its The Ice I Like

Its The Ice I Like showed much improved form when landing a gamble to gain a first win over fences at Navan earlier in the month, and he could yet be open to more progress in this sphere. Its The Ice I Like was fitted with blinkers for the first time at Navan, and they seemed to spark something of a revival as he cruised clear of his rivals and won with plenty in hand. If the blinkers have a similar impact again he should prove difficult to beat.  

Thurles 13:20 - Moreece

Moreece produced his best effort to date when finishing a good second at Navan last time and a reproduction of that kind of performance ought to be good enough. His mark had previously looked stiff enough, but the Navan performance suggests that's no longer the case, and he looks reasonably well treated compared to most of today's rivals.  

Thurles 14:20 - Draycott Place

Draycott Place was in the process of putting in a good performance when running out at Navan last time, yet to be asked for an effort, and he can bounce back with a win. He reverts back to hurdles here and has to be given a strong chance on form as a repeat of the level he ran to when third at Clonmel on his penultimate start is likely to be good enough.
