Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Tuesday December 31

Punchestown plays host to racing on Tuesday.

Timeform highlight three bets on today's card at Punchestown...

You Must Know Me (12:45) failed to land the odds in this event 12 months ago, but his useful novice form coupled with his relative experience over these obstacles suggests that he may be worth siding with this time around. Touch The Eden is very promising, though a stamina test may not be what he wants, so Marlbrook (another exciting sort) could be the one to give the selection most to think about.

Recent Navan winner Art Lord and Ruby Walsh's mount Troll d'Oudairies look sure to go well, but Luke's Benefit (13:15) was better than ever when scoring over hurdles at Fairyhouse earlier this month and is taken to land this contest for the third year in succession.

De Chissler ought to be very competitive under a penalty, but Getoutwhenyoucan (15:15) is going the right way, and may well open his account this time. Shanroe Society completes the shortlist. There is a lot to like about the selection's progress, pulling clear of the rest when finding only one too strong over this trip at Tramore this month. May well be up to going one better.
