Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Monday 10 September
Timeform pick out their three best bets from Listowel on Monday...
"The fact that he's plunged into listed company on just his third start is a hint of how highly his connections think of him..."
Timeform on Dabiyr
Landline - Listowel 14:45
Landline did well to overcome a troubled passage when resuming winning ways at Roscommon last week, and on that evidence, can make a bold follow-up bid from 4 lb higher. This is competitive though, with Polly Douglas, who was a creditable fifth at the Curragh last time, and recent Bellewstown scorer Pillar feared most.
Dabiyr - Listowel 15:20
Dabiyr is by far and away the most inexperienced runner in the line-up, making a belated start to his career at Galway at the end of July. He has run with promise on each of his two runs so far, though, building on his debut second when a well-backed winner at Gowran last time, travelling well and winning readily having gone on two furlongs out. The fact that he's plunged into listed company on just his third start is a hint of how highly his connections think of him and he's chanced to take this step up in grade in his stride, and win again.
Mount Tabora - Listowel 16:25
Mount Tabora failed to justify favouritism in the Galway maiden won by Zander, who re-opposes here, but he should be suited by this step up in trip and meets that rival on 10 lb better terms now pitched into a nursery. That said, Zander remains open to improvement and is feared most ahead of Highway To Success, who disappointed on his first run in a nursery at the Curragh but looked promising prior to that.
