Timeform on Globe Theatre

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Cork on Saturday...

CHARCOR - 14:30 Cork

CHARCOR has edged down to a good mark and just about earns the vote in a competitive handicap. Karawaan ran well on his debut for the in-form Ger Lyons yard and rates the biggest threat, with the hat-trick seeking Annie Fior also fancied to be thereabouts.

GLOBE THEATRE - 16:10 Cork

GLOBE THEATRE took another step forward when fifth on his Naas return and can strike at the fourth time of asking with further improvement on the cards. Dark Endeavour showed promise in a couple of runs last autumn and likely has more to offer this year, while Defining Battle can build on his debut fifth on the all-weather in November and also merits respect.

SOLOMONS SEAL - 16:45 Cork

SOLOMONS SEAL caught the eye when fourth on his Gowran reappearance 11 days ago and looks well worth siding with to build on that now. Villa Maria was successful on that same Gowran card and is likely to go well again, while Amazing One arrives in good form from AW and is also respected.
