Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Saturday April 30

The Punchestown Festival comes to a conclusion on Saturday
The Punchestown Festival comes to a conclusion on Saturday

Timeform pick out their best three bets on the final day of the Punchestown Festival.

"Willie Mullins' charge was a bit too keen at Aintree earlier this month but a repeat of that run would probably be enough to win this.."

Quantitativeeasing - 14:35 Punchestown
Quantitativeeasing saw off stablemate Cantlow fairly readily in Thursday's La Touche Cup and a memorable double awaits the former. The eleven year old has eight victories to his name, including three at the track, and he will be hard to beat. Be Positive didn't get very far on Wednesday in the race won by stablemate Wish Ye Didn't but won at the festival last year and he can complete a 1-2-3 for Enda Bolger.

Limini - 15:50 Punchestown
Back against her own sex, Limini can return to winning ways at the main expense of Slowmotion. Willie Mullins' charge was a bit too keen at Aintree earlier this month but a repeat of that run would probably be enough to win this. Slowmotion impressed in a Grade 2 at Fairyhouse last month and, with more improvement to come, is the obvious danger.

Anibale Fly - 17:35 Punchestown
A competitive race, but Anibale Fly can reward backers who keep the faith. He was well supported at Fairyhouse last time and wasn't disgraced behind Clondaw Warrior, and with Barry Geraghty choosing to ride again he looks worth another chance stepped back up in trip. Gordon Elliott is a man to fear in big-race handicaps and his pair Desoto County and De Plotting Shed look the pick of the rest.
