Timeform pick out their three best bets from Ballinrobe on Monday evening...

"...with the booking of Robbie Power catching the eye, he is fancied to gain a deserved success..."

Timeform on Zoffalee

MOROSINI - 18:15 Ballinrobe

MOROSINI shaped encouragingly when second on his hurdling debut in a Grade 3 at Fairyhouse, staying on strongly to be beaten only three and a half lengths. That form is by far the best on offer in this line-up, and with further improvement on the cards, he looks sure to take all the beating for the Jessica Harrington yard that continues in good heart (62.9% of horses running to form). Foveros is the obvious threat after his easy win starting out for Willie Mullins at Cork.

ZOFFALEE - 19:15 Ballinrobe

This represents a good opportunity for ZOFFALEE, who has improved in this sphere switched to handicaps the last twice, notably when fourth over a slightly longer trip here earlier this month. The way he travelled for a long way suggests that the drop back to two miles will be in his favour here, and with the booking of Robbie Power catching the eye, he is fancied to gain a deserved success. Alfred Wegener put in a decent shift on the Flat last time and may be next best ahead of Crocosmia, who will be a danger to all if reproducing the form of her penultimate start at Sligo.

ROCKY COURT - 20:15 Ballinrobe

ROCKY COURT ended his time with Stephen Mahon at the top of his game, winning over C&D before shaping better than the bare result at Galway, where he travelled better than most but found himself repeatedly short of room from two out. This mark is unlikely to prove beyond him on that evidence - he is 2 lb clear of the field on weight-adjusted ratings here - and he looks sure to take plenty of beating if ready to go on debut for Tony Martin. Punches Cross and Dakota Moirette head the dangers.
