Timeform pick out three bets from the Curragh on Saturday.


Art Nouvelle - 15:20 Curragh

A tightly-knit handicap, however ART NOUVELLE reacted well to first-time cheekpieces when runner-up in a Cork handicap a week ago and holds sound claims of going one better up 1 lb. Joseph O'Brien's filly is a half-sister to a 7f winner and she can take this if given a more aggressive ride than last time. Treaty of Vienna and Alphabet are open to progress and head the list of dangers.

Laganore - 15:55 Curragh

LAGANORE made a solid return to action behind Somehow at Gowran and is taken to build on that and add this Group 3 to her listed win last season. Tony Martin's mare is a five-time winner (twice over this trip) and she should be at home on today's quicker ground. Beautiful Morning was a couple of lengths behind the selection in fourth last time and is entitled to be sharper for the run, while Flying Fairies has reached the frame on both starts this term and will be suited by the return to 1¼m.

Complicit - 17:05 Curragh

COMPLICIT is not what you'd call prolific, his last win coming back in December 2014 for Paul Cole, however he was unlucky not to finish closer at Dundalk last time and might be worth siding with off what has become a favourable mark based on his best form. His stablemate Bainne arrives on the back of three solid placed efforts and should go well, while Mountain Fox was clear of the rest when an improved second on his Gowran handicap bow a couple of weeks ago.
