Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Sunday 19 May

Horses at the finish
There is Flat racing from Naas on Sunday

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Naas on Sunday...

"...probably would've added to his tally had the gaps appeared at the right time on his reappearance at Cork..."

Timeform on Perfect Tapatino

FINAL VENTURE - 15:15 Naas

FINAL VENTURE's losing run stretches back almost two years, but he did little wrong last season and may well buck that trend if matching the form of his solid reappearance effort in a competitive Musselburgh handicap, a level that leaves him 3 lb clear of the field on weight-adjusted ratings here. Gossamer Wings is likely to strip fitter following her recent Cork reappearance and is feared greatly in receipt of 13 lb from the selection, while Beckford also merits respect.

PEACE CHARTER - 15:50 Naas

PEACE CHARTER and So Wonderful both looked potentially smart when fighting out the finish of a C&D maiden last month, and they're likely to come to the fore once again. On that occasion Peace Charter proved too strong for the Aidan O'Brien-trained filly and there's no real reason to expect the outcome to be any different this time. Feminista and In The Present can do battle for minor honours.


Progressive in handicaps last season, PERFECT TAPATINO probably would've added to his tally had the gaps appeared at the right time on his reappearance at Cork. Under the circumstances, the five-year-old did well to finish as close as he did and compensation awaits under Donnacha O'Brien, who has an impressive 27% strike rate at Naas. Geological resumed winning ways at Leopardstown on Friday and will be a threat if turned out again quickly, while Premier League is best of the rest.
