Timeform pick out bets from the Curragh on Saturday.


Silverkode - 15:30 Curragh

Silverkode is proving most progressive, following up his maiden win against mostly more experienced rivals in a useful C&D handicap last time. He found plenty to lead once getting a gap and narrowly prevailed, and with further improvement forthcoming, he is fancied to defy a 4 lb rise and land the hat-trick. Casla and Fior Cliste are another couple of three-year-olds worth close consideration.

Magic Bear - 16:05 Curragh

Magic Bear made an impressive winning reappearance at Navan in June, showing herself clearly ahead of her mark. She was raised 10 lb for that success, but still was a little disappointing at Cork two weeks later. That run may have come a little quick, and she wasn't persevered with once held, so she is worth another chance on return from over a month off. Ice Cold In Alex caught the eye at Navan two weeks ago and is next best ahead of Miss Power.

World Stage - 17:10 Curragh

World Stage looked badly in need of the experience on his debut at Navan last month. He is bred to be a thorough stayer, but perhaps the 13f trip last time is a little far at this stage, and the drop back to 10f here could also help. Aidan O'Brien's runners tend to come on a bundle for their debuts and he is expected to improve for his initial experience. Ringside Support's has done enough to suggest he's the pick of the remainder given he has more potential than the more exposed Massif Central.
