Timeform Irish SmartPlays: No excuses for Gabh Mo Leithsceal

Jim Bolger's colours will be carried by Gabh Mo Leithsceal

There is another eight-race card at Dundalk today and we have come up with three more SmartPlays......

Gabh Mo Leithsceal looks to be on a workable mark and is unlikely to get many better chances than this one...

Daring Man clearly isn't the easiest to win with but he is very difficult to oppose from what looks a lenient mark in the first division of the one mile handicap at 19:30. He has posted some very solid efforts on turf this year, including when placed at the Curragh on his last two starts, but looks potentially thrown in here from a mark 8 lb lower than the one he competed from last time. He has form at this trip, gained his only career victory on this surface and his yard had a winner earlier this week.

The Reek looks the one to beat in the second division of that handicap. Pat Martin's filly posted a career-best effort when second to Go On Murt over this C&D back in July and she had legitimate excuses on her last two starts. She remains unexposed at this trip, has a tongue tie back on here and this isn't a strong race.

Jim Gorman can send punters home happy courtesy of Gabh Mo Leithsceal in the finale at 21:25. He found only one too good on his reappearance at this track last month and followed that up with another good placed effort at Killarney. He looks on a workable mark and is unlikely to get many better chances than this one.
