Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Tuesday July 23

Ruby Walsh rides Sir Lynx

Three more bets from Ballinrobe are recommended by Timeform's Irish team...

"The 20:25 is a similarly open handicap in which Clonleney is taken to go one better than over C&D last time."

Oscar Wings (18:25) improved when landing a bumper here in May 2011 and got off the mark over hurdles when switched to a handicap last time. With more to come a 6 lb rise doesn't look excessive and she is marginally preferred to Xsquared and City Line in a trappy event.

In the 19:25, Sir Lynx, Captain Ocana, Texas Rose and Rolling Rocket are all capable of taking a hand. The first-named opened hurdling account over two miles here in June and was doing best work at the finish when fifth over that trip at Sligo recently, so it'd be no surprise if he gave another good account back up in trip this time and he is therefore awarded the vote.

The 20:25 is a similarly open handicap in which Clonleney is taken to go one better than over C&D last time. He's a lightly-raced seven-year-old who returned from 13 months off to finish a staying-on second to Revolutionary Road on that run and has strong claims off a 3 lb higher mark if none the worse for his efforts.
