Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Thursday 20 September

Willie Mullins
There's seven races at Clonmel this afternoon

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Clonmel on Thursday...

"...she was a fair performer in bumpers, and should have a bigger performance in her back over this sort of trip."

Timeform on Dalouga

Dalouga - Clonmel 17:00

Dalouga is yet to get going over hurdles, but she was a fair performer in bumpers, and should have a bigger performance in her back over this sort of trip. Koroleva would be a big threat if recapturing her hurdling debut form when second at Cork at the beginning of August, while Harrys Gift is another to consider after a career best last time.

Irish Lass - Clonmel 18:00

Irish Lass could do with jumping a bit better than she did at Limerick last time but the ability is there, she made it two wins from three starts at Limerick in July, and she's selected to win again for her top connections. Gavin Cromwell's Brex Drago has already bagged a couple of handicaps this month and could be the one to give Willie Mullins' mare most to do.

Kerry Star - Clonmel 19:00

Kerry Star failed to justify support when third on debut at Sligo 6 weeks ago but she was not seen to best effect and has scope for plenty of improvement. Scotsman's Bay is going the right way and is likely to be on the premises again, while Cara's Way didn't show much in a point in March but she's well bred and in good hands ahead of her Rules debut.
