Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Sunday December 22

Thurles comes under the inspection of our Irish team.

Timeform suggest three bets on this afternoon's card at Thurles...

"Innocentman (12:20) is a likely improver now his attentions are turned to handicapping and he gets the tentative vote in a trappy event..."

Innocentman (12:20) is a likely improver now his attentions are turned to handicapping and he gets the tentative vote in a trappy event. C&D winner Sitcom and the in-form Bendala Bleu could prove best of the rest. The selection is a Point winner who has shown gradual improvement in 3 runs under Rules so far. Likely there's more to come now handicapping and one of the more interesting contenders.

Miss Palm (12:50) had something to spare when opening her chasing account at Tramore recently. She ought to stay this far and may be worth chancing to shrug off a small rise in the weights. The error-prone Caddy Man should also be involved if keeping the mistakes to a minimum, whilst Dark Vagabond is another worth considering in a wide-open affair.

Grand Jesture (14:20) hasn't added to his tally since taking a Punchestown bumper on his only start for Don Cantillon last April, but he's gone close on several occasions for this yard and can return to winning ways here. Los Amigos, Cullentry Royal and Kilcarry Bridge are feared most, in that order.

Timeform Irish SmartPlays:
All at Thurles
Back Innocentman in the 12:20
Back Miss Palm in the 12:50
Back Grand Jesture in the 14:20
