Timeform on The Craicisninety

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Sligo on Wednesday...

Thecraicisninety - 14:55 Sligo

Thecraicisninety has run well on both starts over fences this year to fill the runner-up sport, and looked the likeliest winner for most of the way on his last start in this sphere at Punchestown. He hasn't been in the same form over hurdles since, but better is expected now back chasing. Cliff House is most feared after bumping into an improved rival in early August, along with Effernock Lad, who shaped as if still in good form on penultimate start.

Ayr of Elegance - 15:30 Sligo

Ayr of Elegance shaped better than the bare result when finishing third at Tramore last month, badly hampered when still going well two out. She can gain compensation for that and looks sure to do better in this sphere. Dasmyhoss heads up the dangers while Western Sea and Lord Schnapps are two well worth a market check.

Open To The World - 17:05 Sligo

Open To The World's strike rate tempers enthusiasm but there is no doubt she is on a handy mark if able to put it all together, and she is selected in the hope her jumping holds up. Crutches Lad is less exposed than most and feared along with Rudy Catrail, whilst market confidence behind Bishops Quarter would need to be taken seriously given his connections.
