Timeform pick out three bets from Gowran Park on Saturday.


Masterstonemason - Gowran Park 13:45

Masterstonemason ran his best race yet when only beaten a neck over this trip at Listowel last time out, and if he can repeat that here he has an outstanding chance. Apparition may be the better of the Joseph O'Brien pair at this stage of their careers while Foxy Lass kept on well to win at Ballinrobe and cannot be ruled out either.

Ben Button - Gowran Park 15:25

Ben Button arrives here on the crest of a wave after wins at Galway, Sligo and Listowel, and that run shows no signs of stopping here. Mine Now may be the best option to chase the selection home for trainer Peter Fahey, though bottom-weight Sir Jack Yeats is potentially well handicapped back over hurdles and could place, also.

Balko des Flos - Gowran Park 16:00

Balko des Flos gets the narrowest of votes here in a fascinating renewal that could get tactical. His August Galway win was impressive and he may be able to confirm that form with Shaneshill today on 7 lb worse terms, with the Mullins' gelding his biggest danger, though Ballycasey should also run well in a fascinating contest.
