Timeform pick out their three best bets from Down Royal and Kilbeggan on Friday...

"...could be worth another chance to gain her second win of the campaign..."

Timeform on She's A Star

ARCHER'S UP - Kilbeggan 17:05

ARCHER'S UP produced easily his best effort over hurdles when runner-up at Killarney in August, doing well in coming from furthest back of the principals. Far from disgraced on the level subsequently, he's fancied to open his account in this sphere. Anytime Now and Plan Of Attack can give the selection most to do.

PIPER BOMB - Down Royal 18:20

PIPER BOMB proved better than ever when second to a Joseph O'Brien improver (pair five lengths clear) at Roscommon earlier in the week and, 2 lb lower in the weights here, he must go well if coping with two outings in quick succession. Althib fared best of those held up when running on for third at Gowran last time and heads the dangers along with recent Wolverhampton scorer Ahundrednotout.

SHE'S A STAR - Down Royal 19:20

SHE'S A STAR was firmly on the up prior to getting stuck in the mud last time and could be worth another chance to gain her second win of the campaign for the Noel Meade yard that won back-to-back renewals of this race in 2012 and 2013. Waterville fits a similar mould in that he needs to bounce back from a lesser effort, but he remains of interest along with the well treated Micras.
