Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Wednesday, November 29
Timeform pick out their three best bets on the card at Punchestown on Wednesday...
"She should get off the mark here as she steps up in trip with Davy Russell taking over for the first time."
Good To Flow - 13:20 Punchestown
Good To Flow is progressive and probably should have finished even close than she did at Clonmel last time, staying on for third having been ridden further back than the two that beat her, and she should get off the mark here as she steps up in trip with Davy Russell taking over for the first time. Alaliya is sure to remain competitive, while Allez Kal could be all the better for the switch to handicaps.
Bon Papa - 13:50 Punchestown
After an exciting start Bon Papa ended last season on a bit of a downer, pulling up in the Neptune and then finishing last of eight at Punchestown when last seen. Willie Mullins is just the man to get him back on track, however, and given that he is certainly a chasing sort on looks he is worth the benefit of the doubt on his return here. Stand Up And Fight and Dakota Moirette head up the list of dangers in an intriguing beginners chase.
Fitzhenry - 14:55 Punchestown
The one that stands out in terms of profile is Fitzhenry, who got back on track when third on his handicap debut at Naas last time despite shaping as though he'd be suited by further than two and a half miles. He gets an extra two furlongs here today and is expected to improve with that in mind. Larry Capri made a sound return to action when fourth at Fairyhouse and is respected along with Red River Gold, who was narrowly in front of the selection at Naas.
