Another tricky puzzle for punters to solve but SMART MONEY should give supporters a good run. Jim Culloty's charge scored with a bit in hand at Fairyhouse but couldn't quicken on a return visit when the ground was faster. This step up in trip looks just what's required and Davy Russell can steer him home. Ok Oscar makes his handicap debut and looks high enough in the weights while Stop The Clock ran poorly when favourite at Navan after beating today's rival Peinora in a Thurles maiden. Wicklow Lad was a long way in front of Stop The Clock in that Navan event and has a chance while the market should be noted for the chance of Cerveza Dinero.
