Timeform pick out their three best bets from Fairyhouse on Monday...

"He looks open to improvement and is worth siding with, provided that the turnaround doesn't come too quick."

Timeform on Flow of Words

Flow of Words - Fairyhouse 16:15

Flow of Words made a promising start when fifth at Gowran on Saturday, pushed along over three furlongs out and not knocked about in the closing stages. He looks open to improvement and is worth siding with, provided that the turnaround doesn't come too quick. Thief of Joy is a newcomer to note for Ger Lyons, while Gustavus Weston looks another likely improver.

Tenax - Fairyhouse 16:45

Tenax had Lord Rapscallion and Offline behind when third on nursery debut at Navan, leaving the impression that that trip didn't get the bottom of him that day. With this step back up in trip a good move, he makes plenty of appeal off the same mark, and gets the vote to score. Eagle Song was below when tried in a tongue strap (omitted here) in the Curragh nursery won by Lord Rapscallion, but will be a threat if able to get back on track. Rita Levi and Vidiyni are others to consider.

Inverleigh - Fairyhouse 17:15

Inverleigh was a big price when making a winning debut at Leopardstown last month, but there was no fluke about it, as he had some useful sorts in behind, and deserved plenty of credit for managing to overhaul one who got first run. He looks capable of making his mark at this higher level, and gets the vote to remain unbeaten. All The King's Men got off the mark at Naas and could have more to come given who trains him, while his stablemate Fantasy has been placed Group/listed level on her last 3 starts
