Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Three Kingdoms to get off the mark

Sheikh Mohammed's silks are carried by Three Kingdoms today

Three flat events on Clonmel's mixed card come under the scrutiny of Timeform's Irish team.

Roja Dove has been kept busy since returning from a break last month and looks to hold strong claims of adding to her comeback victory at Naas after a number of consistent efforts in the interim...

Some interestingly-bred three-year-olds are engaged in this ten-furlong maiden and it could be that Sheikh Mohammed's silks will be aboard the winner in the shape of Three Kingdoms (16:45). A son of Street Cry and out of a Brazilian Grade 1 winner at this trip, he's found the frame on all three starts so far, showing fair form in similar events at Curragh, Galway and Leopardstown, and his winning turn can't be far away.

Roja Dove (17:15) has been kept busy since returning from a break last month and looks to hold strong claims of adding to her comeback victory at Naas after a number of consistent efforts in the interim. That success over seven furlongs came on her first start on turf and was also her handicap debut, but she's matched that form that when in frame on all 3 starts since, including a fourth placed finish at Killarney earlier this week. While remaining in such good nick, she is worth following.

Six Silver Lane (17:50) took this corresponding race last year on the back of a fifth-placed finish at the Curragh. History looks like repeating itself as Joanna Morgan's grey gelding filled that position there late last month, in doing so shaping as if a repeat victory in this event is a distinct possibility. That prep run came over seven furlongs, but he'll be suited by this return to ten furlongs and racing on less testing ground than recently.
