Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Fox set to rock Punchestown

Punchestown takes centre stage on Wednesday afternoon.

Timeform's Irish team highlight three win selections at Punchestown this afternoon...

"The form of that race is working out nicely and Foxrock is entitled to progress this afternoon..."

Foxrock was a decisive winner of his sole start in points in October and as result was sent off a short-priced favourite on his hurdling debut at Leopardstown in December. However, things didn't really go to plan that day as he was hampered and unseated at the first. He was sent back there for a hot-looking maiden the following month and, after again being strong in the betting, he shaped with plenty of encouragement when chasing home Mala Beach. The form of that race is working out nicely and Foxrock is entitled to progress this afternoon.    
Carrigeen Lonicera is also a former point winner and confirmed the promise of her Rules debut when winning a mares bumper at Fairyhouse on her return. Carrigeen Lonicera followed that effort with a sold third behind Toye Native and today's rival Queen of The Hill on her hurdling debut at Limerick last month and showed more than enough in defeat to suggest she can get off the mark over hurdles at the second attempt.

Sumkindasuprstar was a multiple winner of handicap chases last term and has produced some creditable efforts when placed over the larger obstacles this time around. He reverted to timber of a much lower handicap mark last weekend and was unlucky to bump into a similarly well-treated rival when chasing home Vic Canvas. He is turned out quickly this afternoon and should take plenty of beating if fully over those exertions.
