Timeform on Keep Believing

Timeform highlight the three best bets at Gowran Park on Saturday...

Lord Rapscallion - 15:10 Gowran Park

Lord Rapscallion, like many from the Johnny Murtagh yard, has enjoyed a fine campaign and has rapidly risen in the weights. He won a handicap here over seven furlongs last month and produced an even better effort in defeat off a 7 lb higher mark in a competitive handicap at Leopardstown last week, staying on well to grab second close home. He is thriving at present and looks the one to beat on these terms.

Keep Believing - 16:20 Gowran Park

Keep Believing was bitterly disappointing on his most recent start over this course and distance in July, finishing well down the field having been sent off the 5/4 favourite after attracting strong support. He was reportedly coughing post-race, however, so is worth another chance. He is on a long losing run which stretches back to 2017 but, crucially, he has raced only three times for Joseph O'Brien and shaped with some promise on his penultimate outing at Fairyhouse. He can capitalise on a mark which has fallen sharply in recent years.

Ennistymon - 16:55 Gowran Park

Ennistymon has been largely disappointing since finishing runner-up in the Oaks, but she does arrive on the back of a creditable effort at Galway last time and this looks a good opportunity. Ennistymon had no answer to Princess Zoe's turn of foot at Galway, and she was also passed for second close home, but it represented a step back in the right direction and she ought to go close if running to a similar level. The application of blinkers could help as she is dropping in trip.
