Timeform on Getabird

Timeform pick out the three best bets at Gowran Park on Saturday...

Sixshooter - 13:00 Gowran Park

It's hard to split the four at the head of the market on form, all arriving on the back of impressive victories. However, Sixshooter is open to significant improvement after making it three from three under rules at Punchestown on hurdling debut last month. French-import Franco de Port is taken to chase him home on his first start for Willie Mullins, while Cayd Boy and Tiger Voice both merit consideration.

Getabird - 14:10 Gowran Park

Getabird remains with unfinished business over fences and is expected to get back to winning ways. He failed to stay when pulled up in a Grade 1 at Punchestown when last seen, his headstrong tendencies doing him no favours, but he remains with the potential to go right to the top in this sphere. Mengli Khan has a few recent disappointing efforts to put behind him but is of obvious interest if rediscovering some of last season's form, while Mortal merits respect for the in-form Joseph O'Brien yard.

Thisonesforollie - 15:15 Gowran Park

Thisonesforollie shaped as if right back in form before taking a heavy fall at Thurles last time, ridden handily before taking up the running three out, still travelling powerfully in front when departing at the next. She could be the answer if none the worse for that fall in what doesn't look the strongest event. Kavanaghs Corner is the obvious threat after a career-best win at Clonmel last month.
