Timeform pick out their three best bets from Down Royal on Saturday...
"...she is fancied to go one better now..."
Timeform on Natural Power
Natural Power - 14:50 Down Royal
Natural Power took a step forward from her debut effort when finishing runner-up at Galway earlier this month and, open to further improvement now, she is fancied to go one better now in a race that isn't as competitive as the numbers suggest. One Cool Choice will look to make her racecourse experience count and should go close whilst Shabra's O B and newcomer Ivy Avenue are well worth a market check.
Eclector - 15:25 Down Royal
Eclector is seemingly not yet the finished article, still showing signs of greenness late on when a creditable fourth on handicap debut at Kilbeggan last week. The addition of blinkers should sharpen him up a little and, with further improvement anticipated, it would be no surprise to see him bang there. The step up in trip should suit Joupe, whilst Mia Figilia can't be ruled out on handicap debut.
Linger - 17:45 Down Royal
Linger is enjoying a fine 2019, landing back-to-back Galway handicaps over hurdles/on the Flat in recent weeks. He looked sure to go close prior to falling over fences two weeks ago, and it will come as no surprise to see him firmly in the mix once more despite an inflated mark back on the Flat. Cliff House ran well at Tramore last time and is feared, along with the Likeable Conron.
