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

"...shaped well when runner-up at this venue 12 months ago..."

Timeform on Licklighter

LICKLIGHTER - 17:30 Ballinrobe

The lightly-raced seven-year-old LICKLIGHTER shaped well when runner-up at this venue 12 months ago, just failing to get up having conceded first run. He can make amends for all his subsequent absence is a slight concern. Hurricane Volta, who improved when second at Tramore last time, and Punches Cross rate next best.

CONRON - 18:00 Ballinrobe

Despite not showing anything on the Flat for Mick Halford, CONRON improved out of all recognition on his hurdles debut a fortnight ago and could be a force to be reckoned with in the coming months. The Willie Mullins-trained Eoline Jolie is the obvious danger running in a much easier race than the ones she's contested in Ireland so far.

DAWN SHADOW - 18:30 Ballinrobe

Top-weight DAWN SHADOW is a very likeable type and, after winning well at Punchestown last month, is expected to make a bold bid to concede plenty of weight all round on this handicap debut. Lareena and Like An Open Book head the list of dangers.
