Timeform pick out three bets from Killarney on Saturday.


Robin des Foret - 14:00 Killarney

Willie Mullins holds a very strong hand, with Robin des Foret taken to successfully concede weight all round. He ran at least as well in defeat at Galway last time, emerging as the best horse at the weights and shaping like it for a long way too, and he is taken to gain quick compensation, probably at the main expense of stablemate Miss Sapphire and Cook Islands.

Rathvinden - 15:45 Killarney

Rathvinden has impressed with the manner of his victories in his last two starts over fences and he remains one to keep on the right side in such races so he is a confident selection. Conrad Hastings needs to improve to figure, but he could well do so, while Peregrine Run is also a classy sort and won't be far away in the finish.

Delegate - 16:20 Killarney

The way Delegate jumped when comfortably scoring in a Sligo novice last time suggested he could make a much better chaser than hurdler, so an opening mark of 130 could underestimate him and he is taken to make a winning handicap chase debut. Last-time-out winner Neverushacon is regarded as the chief danger and Lofgren is expected to put up another solid showing, too.
