Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Sean Airgead to land the money

Today's Irish action comes at Sligo

Maximum fields aplenty at Sligo this evening means there is no shortage of betting opportunities.

Sean Airgead was in good heart last summer, winning a handicap at Perth and successful over this C&D in August, whilst he's yet to finish out of the three here

Wall Street Wally looks to have been found an excellent opportunity to make a winning start over hurdles in the maiden at 18:40 and rates a confident selection. He reached a fairly useful level in bumpers, running his best race when second to Alexandr Nevsky at Fairyhouse last term. He wasn't at his best on his return at Kilbeggan, but is entitled to come on for the run and tonight's race is a particularly weak affair.

The 19:10 looks a competitive handicap but Sean Airgead, who shaped better than the result when third to Sorted here last time, looks sure to make a bold bid with conditions to his liking. He was in good heart last summer, winning a handicap at Perth and successful over this C&D in August, whilst he's yet to finish out of the three here. We're not expecting that record to come to an end this evening.

Charlie's Vic won her bumper in fine style here last season, and given the progress she has made since over hurdles, looks to have a good chance of defying top-weight in the handicap due off at 20:10. Noel Kelly's point winner is still going the right way under Rules, successful twice over hurdles before an excellent fourth to Mae's Choice in a Grade 3 contest at Punchestown on her latest start, again impressing with how she went through the race. Prices around the 9.08/1 mark look too big.
