Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Sunday February 22

Davy Russell rides two of our fancies on Sunday
Davy Russell rides two of our fancies on Sunday

There's a high-class card at Naas on Sunday and Timeform provide you with three bets...

Kilcrea has improved for the application of blinkers lately, and he still looks to be on a fair mark...

Naas 14:50 - Empire of Dirt

Useful hurdler Empire of Dirt has yet to match that level of form over fences, but he was well on his way to recording a facile success at Thurles when departing at the second last, and he still remains with potential in this sphere. Empire of Dirt had jumped impeccably prior to his departure and is well worth another chance, acknowledging this is a competitive contest.  

Naas 15:50 - Mallowney

Mallowney took his form to another level when bolting up under a big weight in the Dan Moore at Fairyhouse last time, and a repeat of that kind of performance would make him difficult to beat. Mallowney produced a high-class performance to blow his rivals away at Fairyhouse, impressing with his high cruising speed and fluent jumping, and that effort sets a good standard. 

Naas 16:20 - Kilcrea

Kilcrea has improved for the application of blinkers lately, and he still looks to be on a fair mark. Kilcrea comes here on the back of a good third at Leopardstown, where he ran his best race yet over fences, sticking to his task well against a pair of decent prospects, and the return to three miles will be in his favour.
