Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Top Spin to kick on in handicap company

Tonight's betting interest firmly revolves around Kilbeggan

The Timeform Irish team bring you three selections from this evening's meeting at Kilbeggan...

Top Spin leaves the impression that there is plenty more scope for improvement given the belated move into handicap company.

Top Spin is fancied to make his handicap debut a winning one in the 17:55 contest. A useful performer on Flat for John Murphy, he has yet to translate his ability to hurdles in five starts thus far but leaves the impression that there is plenty more scope for improvement given the belated move into handicap company. Representing top connections, he looks a decent price to break his duck over timber and can get backers off to a good start.

Next up is Jack The Hat in the 18:30. Noel Lawlor's gelding showed improved form after seven months off when bagging his first success in a two-and-a-half mile conditionals event at Wexford in July, and with stamina doubts surrounding some of his rivals, is taken to follow up off a 7 lb higher mark given the clear-cut winning margin that day.

Finally, Bruff can score in the 19:35 handicap chase for Mouse Morris. The son on Presenting has been running respectably of late, including when fourth in handicap chase at Tramore on Saturday, and is weighted to reverse a prior C&D defeat by Page One Two Nine in June. At morning prices he looks worth supporting, and can round off the day in good style.
