Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Time to back Flic Flac

Pat Smullen takes the ride on Flic Flac at Dundalk

Timeform's Irish team find three horses of interest racing at Thurles and Dundalk on Friday...

Flic Flac is a useful sort who dead-heated over this C&D 13 months ago and she looks to hold leading claims here...

Dancing Tornado (14:10 Thurles) may well be the oldest runner in the field, but a revival in his fortunes over recent months suggests there's plenty of life left in him; his long losing run finally came to a halt at Limerick over fences earlier this month following a string of decent efforts. The return to timber and the drop back in trip from three miles shouldn't inconvenience and he looks to hold decent claims of following up here.

Get Back To Me (15:50 Thurles) has offered encouragement on both of his outings in bumpers thus far, his strong-travelling style evident in events at Cork and Down Royal recently, and in a heat where the others in the field with racecourse experience have failed to match the form of those third and fifth-place finishes, it may well be third time lucky here.

Flic Flac (19:15 Dundalk) is a useful sort who dead-heated over this C&D 13 months ago. Although her attempt to repeat that victory last month was ultimately unsuccessful, there were excuses and now with a kinder draw and off a mark 3 lb below that last winning one, she looks to hold leading claims of gaining compensation here.
