There is Flat racing from Limerick on Friday evening

Timeform pick out three bets from Limerick on Friday evening.


Aqtaar - 18:35 Limerick

This doesn't look the strongest maiden, and Dermot Weld's newcomer Aqtaar makes plenty appeal on paper for powerful connections. She is holding her price in the market this morning and it would come as no surprise were she to make a winning debut. Jim Bolger also saddles a well-related newcomer and she is respected too, along with Zalzar, who shaped promisingly on debut three weeks ago.

Old Time Waltz - 19:10 Limerick

Old Time Waltz showed improved form to make a winning handicap debut at Naas on Tuesday under this rider and she is wisely turned out quickly under a penalty. There doesn't appear to be many ahead of their marks in this field and she ought to be able to follow up. Camellia Japonica should appreciate the return to 1m and, along with The Lords Walk, heads up the dangers.

Talsara - 20:50 Limerick

Talsara won a big-field handicap hurdle at Punchestown on her penultimate start and shaped as though still in good form at Clonmel last time. She remains potentially well treated returned to the Flat and with conditions in her favour, ought to go close under this good-value claimer. He's Our Man shaped well on his reappearance (fit from jumps) when third at Leopardstown recently and he is feared most.
