Timeform provide you with three selections from Ballinrobe on Monday evening...

Kilourney Empress is operating at the top of her game at present and looks set to give a good account in the 20:00 this evening...

Dance with Another is evidently not one of Aidan O'Brien's stable stars but she is bred to relish the step up to a mile and a half and she can take the opening fillies' maiden (18:00). By Danehill Dancer and out of Quarter Moon, runner-up in the Oaks and the Irish Oaks, Dance With Another has yet to live up to her lofty pedigree, but she has shown a fairly useful level of form and her effort last time, when finishing fourth in a 10-furlong Navan Handicap, just about sets the standard here.

The once-raced Zarawi, who represents the in-form yard of Dermot Weld, should be capable of taking an extended nine furlong maiden with little depth at 19:30. A half-sister to the useful Zarebiya, Zarawi offered something to work with when finishing third over seven furlongs at Galway on debut, plugging on in the style of a horse that ought to be more effective over further. Clearly open to plenty of improvement, particularly now tackling this more suitable trip, Zarawi should be backed this evening.

Kilourney Empress is operating at the top of her game at present and looks set to give a good account in the 20:00 this evening. Kilourney Empress produced just about her best effort yet to win at Clonmel earlier this month and, after just five days off, she backed up the positive impression that she had created with a good third at Killarney, shaping better than the bare result as never really got the chance to fully unwind. She has to be afforded respect in this sort of form and is likely to go extremely close.
