Timeform pick out bets from Limerick and Leopardstown on Friday...

"He is expected to land his first Grade 1 today."

Kate Appleby Shoes - 13:00 Limerick

Those with chasing experience don't set the bar that high, and if Kate Appleby Shoes is able to transfer her fairly useful hurdling form to this sphere at the first time of asking then she may well prove hard to beat. Ask Susan is an interesting alternative and may be the one for forecast backers, leaving Whistle Dixie as a tentative suggestion for third place.

Monalee - 13:55 Leopardstown

Albert Bartlett second Monalee has long appealed as the type to make a chaser and could hardly have made a smoother transition to the discipline when winning on chasing debut at Punchestown in November. He is expected to land his first Grade 1 today. Gordon Elliott runs four, all potential improvers over fences, with Jury Duty perhaps the pick after his win over Shattered Love last time. Rathvinden completes the shortlist.

Crack On Corrie - 14:45 Limerick

Crack On Corrie couldn't follow up her Galway win at Fairyhouse last time but bumped into a pair of improvers and could be worth chancing again from an unchanged mark now back up in trip. Silver Planeur looks her main rival at these weights and seems a worthy adversary though both Lagenod and Zipporah could also get involved.
