Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Thursday November 14

Ruby Walsh rides Arvika Ligeonniere

Timeform focus on today's card at Clonmel for their three SmartPlays...

"Arvika Ligeonniere is a confident selection to get his second campaign over fences off to a winning start in the Clonmel Oil Chase at 14:25..."

Sea Light needs a market check on handicap debut in the 13:25 for shrewd connections, whilst the strong-travelling Go Paddy Go and the in-form Famous Ballerina are considered. The verdict, however, goes to Seancill Oir who is well handicapped and should have benefitted for her previous two runs back after a lengthy absence.

Arvika Ligeonniere is a confident selection to get his second campaign over fences off to a winning start in the Clonmel Oil Chase at 14:25, though he will be kept honest by the game Rubi Light who is projected to compete with him for the lead. The patiently-ridden Texas Jack can come through to grab a place, as could Mikael d'Haguenet who can be competitive should his jumping hold up. 

The 15:25 is a race where the majority of runners have questions to answer, including Quartetto and Colls Corner, both of whom are respected but have absences to overcome. A safer play could be each-way on A Fine Young Man who makes a fair bit of appeal from a handicapping viewpoint and can come on from his seasonal bow with Barry Geraghty doing the steering.
