Timeform on Miss Clash

Timeform pick out their three best bets from the Curragh on Saturday...

SPEAK IN COLOURS - 14:00 Curragh

SPEAK IN COLOURS has fared as well as could have been expected in Group 2 company the last twice and, now dropping back in grade, looks capable of regaining the winning thread despite some solid opposition. Gordon Lord Byron ran a big race off 105 in a C&D handicap last time and the relatively-unexposed Gustavus Weston must be respected on the back of his victory in the Phoenix Sprint Stakes here.

MAKE A CHALLENGE - 14:35 Curragh

MAKE A CHALLENGE found only one too good in his bid to complete the five-timer at this course 13 days ago, but the way he went through the race suggested there's still more to come and this could pan out ideally for him. Urban Beat must be respected having acquitted himself well in listed events the last twice, while Verhoyen can also get involved if he doesn't go off too hard.

MISS CLASH - 16:55 Curragh

MISS CLASH has comfortably the best form on offer here, by virtue of her debut second to Bashiyr at Gowran, and the subsequent exploits of that rival (won Galway minor event) suggest that she is capable of going one better with natural first-to-second-run improvement. Sheranda and Magic Fountain both hail from top yards and remain with potential on their third outing, so they could provide the opposition.
