Timeform pick out three bets from Cork on Saturday.


Spirit Power - 14:35 Cork

Though he is bred more for stamina than speed, Spirit Power showed plenty of promise when runner-up twice at Dundalk over six furlongs last month and can make it third time lucky switched to turf/back in trip. Summerseat Mist has run to a fair level when third on her 2 starts to date and is unlikely to be too far behind. The market should guide with regards the other runners, who are all unraced.

Madamoiselle Penny - 15:10 Cork

Madamoiselle Penny looked as good as ever when finishing fourth in a warmish race at Dundalk a fortnight ago and holds obvious claims off the same mark as when winning second time up last season. Bottloeofsmoke arrives on the back of 2 good runs at Wolverhampton, while Ripped was a close third on his Limerick reappearance and also merits respect.

Heartful - 16:55 Cork

Heartful's two best runs have come when fresh, so the fact that she has been off since breaking her maiden in February is a definite positive. She was strong at the finish when winning at Dundalk that day and she can remain very competitive at this level of handicap. Keep Believing chases a hat-trick and has to be feared, with Saga Altais another to consider.
