Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Make it a Breathless start to proceedings

Roscommon hold an eight race mixed card this evening.

Monday's action at Roscommon comes under the watchful gaze of Timeform's Irish team...

There was much to like about the effort of Uleavemebreathless (16:05) on her introduction at the Curragh recently, unfancied in the market but beaten just a head by 91-rated Snow Queen in a fillies conditions race, despite jinking left a furlong out. Cocktail Hour rates as a strong rival here, but Andrew Oliver's daughter of Tiger Hill looks the one to be on.

Measured Approval (16:35) registered his third career victory, looking much improved in the process, when landing a 6½ furlong Sligo handicap by 6 lengths from Doublebarreljimmy a couple of weeks ago. He won well enough there to think he can defy a 10 lb rise in this company.

Later on in this mixed card, Oscars Joy (18:35) makes her debut over timber in the 2½ mile maiden hurdle. She justified strong market support when landing a 2m Limerick bumper in July, looking to win with plenty in hand that day and should prove hard to beat if taking to hurdles.
