Timeform bring you three bets from the Curragh on Sunday

Timeform have found the three best bets from the Curragh on Sunday...

Digeanta had previously run well to finish a close-up fourth on his return at Leopardstown, despite shaping as if he'd come on for the outing, and should give a good account...

Curragh 15:10 - Gordon Lord Byron

Globe-trotting money-spinner Gordon Lord Byron showed that nearly all his ability remains intact when running out a wide-margin winner of a listed race here last month, and he may prove difficult to beat if in similar form. Gordon Lord Byron is a tremendously genuine, likeable type and can add to his tally here.


Curragh 15:45 - Brooch

Brooch may have lost her unbeaten record in the Pretty Polly Stakes here last time, but it's difficult to believe she simply had her limitations exposed, and she should be capable of bouncing back to winning ways in this slightly lesser contest. Brooch had looked every inch a top-class performer in the making in racking up a four-timer, and she should prove too good for today's opposition.


Curragh 16:50 - Digeanta

The Willie Mullins-trained Digeanta wasn't seen to best effect at Royal Ascot, possibly finding the extreme trip placing too much emphasis on stamina, and he is likely to be well suited by the return to two miles. Digeanta had previously run well to finish a close-up fourth on his return at Leopardstown, despite shaping as if he'd come on for the outing, and should give a good account.
