Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Tuesday 23 April

There's another stellar card at Fairyhouse on Tuesday

"The step up to three miles should suit her down to the ground..."

Timeform on My Sister Sarah

Timeform pick out their three best bets at Fairyhouse on Tuesday...

My Sister Sarah - Fairyhouse 16:10

While My Sister Sarah could only finish down the field in last month's Mares' Novices' Hurdle at Cheltenham, she had excuses that day, shaping as though the two mile trip wasn't enough of a test for her. She'd been progressing really well prior to that, and sets the standard here on what she's shown so far. The step up to three miles should suit her down to the ground, and she can seal another win at this meeting for Walsh and Mullins.

Tudor City - Fairyhouse 16:40

Plenty of crossovers in form here, and while Tudor City was behind both Jezki and Ivanovich Gorbatov when eighth in the Ladbroke Hurdle on his most recent start at Leopardstown in February, he did well to finish as close as he did under the circumstances that day, having been poorly placed and stopped at a crucial stage, and can strike here off the same mark. Mr Adjudicator caught the eye when eighth in the County Hurdle at Cheltenham and merits plenty of respect, while stablemate Ask Susan resumes on a fair mark and needs a second look.

Ucello Conti - Fairyhouse 17:15

A well above-average hunter chase. Ucello Conti disappointed on both of his big spring assignments at Cheltenham and Aintree the last twice, but he had run well in two starts prior to those outings, and it would be no surprise should he get back on track at this easier level. On The Fringe is fit from a recent point win and is a big danger, while Gwencily Berbas would have given the selection something to think about when unseating rider at Thurles in January.
