Timeform highlight three best bets at Fairyhouse on Saturday.

"...she's got the physique for chasing..."

Timeform on Tintangle

Tintangle - 13:40 Fairyhouse

A temperamental display in Grade 1 company by Tintangle when last seen at Punchestown in May tempers enthusiasm slightly on this switch to fences, but she's got the physique for chasing, is in top hands and is a notch above her rivals if taking to it. Stablemate Edene D'arc and Agusta Gold are the obvious dangers.

Quamino - 16:00 Fairyhouse

Quamino returns from a break on a very tempting hurdles mark given his chase exploits over fences last season so he is offered in the hope there's strength behind him in the betting. The Paul Nolan yard had a good winner earlier this month and Quamino could prove too classy for her rivals here. The Abbey and De Mazzaro head the opposition.

Zagnzig - 16:35 Fairyhouse

Zagnzig doesn't win very often but he now figures on a lenient mark and this looks an excellent opportunity for him to get his head back in front after his good Down Royal second. Sligo winner Select Opportunity should provide stern opposition and Lagenod is well respected too.
