Timeform pick out their three bets from the Curragh on Saturday.

"She'll not be the first Aidan O'Brien-trained horse to improve markedly on their second run..."

Timeform on Bye Bye Baby

Kyllang Rock - 15:20 Curragh

Kyllang Rock came to hand early as a three-year-old and proved better than ever on his seasonal reappearance at Musselburgh in March, winning a five-furlong minor event in smooth fashion. He had a bit more in hand than the half-length winning margin suggests and is expected to take this step back up in class in his stride. Primo Uomo looks the biggest danger ahead of Fashion Queen.

Bye Bye Baby - 16:30 Curragh

Bye Bye Baby shaped as if needing the run on return and remains one to be positive about given the promise she showed last season. She'll not be the first Aidan O'Brien-trained horse to improve markedly on their second run this season and is just preferred to Jaega, who was most impressive when making a winning debut at Leopardstown and has plenty of scope for improvement.

Inscribe - 17:05 Curragh

Inscribe couldn't complete the hat-trick at Navan last tine but nevertheless ran respectably after five months off and remains open to improvement back up in trip. The winner that day has run respectably since, and the step back up in trip will suit, so he has plenty in his favour. Rickrack shaped well at Cork on his return and is another to consider, with Spruce Meadows best of the others.
