Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Castle Guest to regain winning thread

Today's SmartPlays tackle the polytrack at Dundalk this evening

The Timeform Irish team highlight three selections for tonight's meeting at Dundalk....

...Castle Guest has shaped well on both starts since and he looked more than capable of scoring off his current mark when third over course and distance last time

Gmac has not exactly set the world alight in three maiden starts to date, but he has shown definite signs of ability on the track, with his best effort coming when fifth to Abbey Vale over this course and distance on his second start. While that form might not set the pulse racing, it is worth noting that he was well-supported prior to disappointing here last time and he looks the type to do better now tackling nurseries.

The lightly-raced Mea Parvitas has definitely improved since being switched to handicaps and looked unlucky not to win when head second to Copper Dock at this course last time, staying on having been forced to switch 1f out. The Michael Halford-trained filly races off only 1 lb higher this evening and looks worth supporting in her bid to go one better and land her first success.

Castle Guest has gradually developed into a fair performer this year and took advantage of a lenient mark when making all in a handicap at Clonmel in May. The handicapper was quick to set the record straight following that success, but Castle Guest has shaped well on both starts since and he looked more than capable of scoring off his current mark when third over course and distance last time.
