Timeform pick out the best three bets at the Curragh on Tuesday...

"Conditions should be in his favour again..."

Timeform on Scorpion Black

Conversant - 14:05 Curragh

The Dennis Hogan-trained Conversant has been running consistently well since scoring at Listowel in September, hitting the frame on all three occasions since, and he can gain due reward for that consistency by getting his head back in front now. Ecoeye is heading back in the right direction recently so rates as the chief threat, while Arcanears and Enter The Red can't be discounted from their respective falling marks.

Scorpion Black - 16:25 Curragh

Scorpion Black returned to form in a refitted visor when getting on top late in the day over this trip at Gowran eight days ago, suited by the emphasis on stamina, challenging down the middle of the track and staying on strongly close home. Conditions should be in his favour again and he earns the vote to follow up in a race lacking depth. Rudisha ran well on his latest start and is feared, ahead of Lily Lily Rose and Miracles in May.

Adapt To Dan - 16:55 Curragh

Adapt To Dan is a long-standing maiden but he's never been in better form and, having been beaten only narrowly into third at Gowran last week, he has an excellent chance of opening his account in a race that might not take much winning despite the numbers. Summer's Dream and Treasure Vale are also in form, but they're very much in the minority so far as the selection's opposition is concerned.
