Timeform's SmartPlays team pick out the three best bets from Down Royal on Ulster Derby day.

"Likely to develop into a match between last-time-out winners Selskar Abbey and Muraabit, with marginal preference for the former turned out quickly under a penalty."

Fields of Athenry - 15:45 Down Royal

Fields of Athenry broke his maiden in good style at Dundalk recently, and with more to come at this trip, he can make a winning handicap debut on his way to better things. Xebec ran well in a Curragh handicap latest, and has solid claims, along with Hurricane Cass, who wasn't seen to best effect last time.

Princess Aloof - 16:15 Down Royal

Princess Aloof brings solid handicap form to the table, and was far from disgraced back over a mile last time, so may represent a bit of value against unexposed pair Back on Top and Colour Rhapsody.

Selskar Abbey - 16:45 Down Royal

Likely to develop into a match between last-time-out winners Selskar Abbey and Muraabit, with marginal preference for the former turned out quickly under a penalty.
