Timeform's SmartPlays team visit Cork on Tuesday evening.

"Eshera was most impressive when storming clear in a maiden at the Curragh in June and is likely to be tough to beat for all this is a much higher grade."

Count of Carabass - 18:00 Cork

Count of Carabass is on a winning mark and his latest Naas third suggests he's ready to cash in. Barbeque is less exposed than a lot of these and has been given a chance by the handicapper, while Punches Pious showed he can be competitive off his mark when fourth at Roscommon last time.

Octavia - 18:30 Cork

Octavia ran a career best to belatedly get off the mark at Naas yesterday, and will prove hard to beat here if turned out quickly. Maontri is preferred to Empress Toorah for the forecast.

Eshera - 19:00 Cork

Eshera was most impressive when storming clear in a maiden at the Curragh in June and is likely to be tough to beat for all this is a much higher grade. In My Pocket made a successful start to his career at Navan in the spring and it's interesting John Oxx pitches him straight in at listed level on his return. Piri Wango has been placed in pattern company this year and completes the shortlist.
