Racing continues from Listowel on Friday

We return to Listowel as the festival there continues with the three best bets from Timeform's Irish team...

"This looks a good chance for Tiger Trek to go one better than at Kilbeggan earlier this month..."

We kick off proceedings with a 12-furlong maiden (15:05) and the one to keep on side is Unrequited. He would have got off the mark at Wexford last time some 20 days ago only to be disqualified, but providing he's in the same form this looks an excellent opportunity for him to gain compensation. He may not have it all his own way however, with the likes of Asbury Boss and A Greater Force both meriting respect.

It's a nine-furlong handicap under consideration next (15:40) and given that Que Sera Sera responded well to cheekpieces when scoring at Wexford at the end of August, it may pay to side with him. He looks more than capable of defying an open mark of 78 against what looks largely exposed opposition, and it would be no surprise to see him register an impressive success.

Our final bet on the card comes in the maiden hurdle over two-and-a-half miles (17:15) and it looks a good chance for Tiger Trek to go one better than at Kilbeggan earlier this month. He conceded first run on that occasion and if the race pans out better from a tactical perspective here, you fell he will be suited by the step up in trip and gain a well-deserved maiden voyage to the winners' enclosure.
