Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Sunday July 20

My Titania is a daughter of Sea The Stars
My Titania is a daughter of Sea The Stars

There's a good card at the Curragh on Sunday and Timeform suggest backing three horses...

My Titania looked a good prospect when landing a Group 3 at this course last season and she can regain the winning trend in the Kilboy Estate Stakes (15:45) following an encouraging return to action in the Coronation Stakes...

The Jim Bolger-trained Parish Hall has run some creditable races this term without managing to get his head in front but he has been found a nice opportunity at the Curragh and can take the ten-furlong Meld Stakes at 15:15. Parish Hall famously won the Group 1 Dewhurst Stakes as a juvenile and although he isn't up to operating at that level anymore he has developed into a consistent sort at Group 3/listed level and should have too much class for today's opposition. He arrives in good form having finished a narrow runner-up over C&D last month and a bold bid is assured.

My Titania looked a good prospect when landing a Group 3 at this course last season and she can regain the winning trend in the Kilboy Estate Stakes (15:45) following an encouraging return to action in the Coronation Stakes. Things didn't go to plan for the lightly-raced My Titania at Royal Ascot as she was lit up early on having been unable to find any cover in a slowly-run contest. Unsurprisingly, having raced so keenly in the early stages, she wasn't able to quicken with the protagonists at the business end, but she will benefit from that reappearance effort and should prove difficult to beat. 

Eddie Lynam's Witches Brew sets a clear standard in the concluding seven-furlong maiden (17:15) and looks a good bet to register a first success. Witches Brew showed plenty to work with on debut over C&D last season, shaping very well as she finished a good second despite displaying obvious signs of inexperience. She improved as anticipated when finishing fourth in a listed contest next time, and a reproduction of either effort would make her extremely difficult to beat.

Back Parish Hall in the 15:15
Back My Titania in the 15:45
