Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Sunday June 28

Legatissimo after winning the 1000 Guineas
Legatissimo after winning the 1000 Guineas

Timeform's SmartPlays team pick out the three best bets at the Curragh on Pretty Polly Stakes day.

"Legatissimo failed by the narrowest margin to complete the 1000 Guineas/Oaks double, but this could well be her ideal trip, and despite an excellent field she will be hard to beat."

Great Page - 15:55 Curragh

It was hard not to be impressed with the way Great Page quickened clear in a listed event at Naas recently, and her entries suggest she is held in the highest regard, so she can take this on her way to even better things. Most Beautiful, who made a good impression last time, can pose the biggest threat.

Legatissimo - 16:30 Curragh

Legatissimo failed by the narrowest margin to complete the 1000 Guineas/Oaks double, but this could well be her ideal trip, and despite an excellent field she will be hard to beat. The unbeaten Brooch is in excellent hands, and can prove the main danger, with Ribbons and Pleascach also much respected.

Zalty - 17:00 Curragh

In a wide-open handicap Zalty is selected to back-up a promising seasonal reappearance at Tipperary earlier this month. He is on a workable mark at present, and can get the better of Master Speaker, who is reunited with Ryan Moore, successful on him last time, while In Salutem and Bubbly Bellini are others to consider.
