Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Plane sailing for Mister Aviation

Today's three SmartPlays run at Killarney this afternoon

The Timeform Irish team put forward another three selections for this afternoon's mixed card at Killarney...

the form of Mister Aviation's third at the Curragh in July could hardly have worked out any better and it would be no surprise to see him take off now tackling nurseries.

The handicap at 14:45 looks a tight little affair, but the David Wachman-trained Hot Bed looks of interest on his handicap bow. A fair performer, Hot Bed landed a maiden at Dundalk in November on his final two-year-old start and shaped well on his return from a five-month absence when third in a minor event at Naas in April. Hot Bed hasn't been seen since, but he is less exposed than most and is open to further improvement.

We shall follow a similar pattern in the nursery at 15:20 and Tommy Stack's Mister Aviation is the one that takes the eye on his first outing in this particular sphere. Mister Aviation comes here having shown fair form in maidens and, though he underperformed when last seen, the form of Mister Aviation's third at the Curragh in July could hardly have worked out any better and it would be no surprise to see him take off now tackling nurseries.

It's a bit of a wait until our final selection, but hopefully Drumlister will be worth every minute in the handicap hurdle at 18:00. The Arthur Moore-trained gelding has failed to make an impact in five previous starts over hurdles, but he has been in fine form over fences of late, winning two of his last three starts and looking an all-round improved performer. The manner of his recent victory indicated that there may still be more to come and he looks capable of exploiting his lower hurdles mark if translating his recent form back into this sphere..
