Timeform pick out their three best bets from Dundalk on Sunday...

"...she's difficult to ignore in her current vein of form, and gets the vote."

Timeform on Miss Snossyboots

Captain Corcoran - Dundalk 14:00

While Captain Corcoran disappointed when sent off as favourite on debut at Naas last month, finishing sixth of 11, he wasn't given a hard race, and was eased off when headed two furlongs out. He's clearly thought to be capable of better than what he was able to show on debut, and has the benefit of experience here, with five of his seven rivals making their debuts. He can make that initial run count by taking this. American Lady is an interesting newcomer and is feared most, ahead of Silent Look.

Miss Snossyboots - Dundalk 16:15

In what looks a particularly wide-open contest, preference is for Miss Snossyboots, who is a tough mare at the top of her game. She got the reward for her good recent run of form when picking up a success over C&D under positive tactics last month, and though an 8 lb rise makes life tougher, she's difficult to ignore in her current vein of form, and gets the vote. Waterboy, in contrast isn't much of a battler, but he still ranks as a danger along with Rockfish if he can prove himself on the AW.

Sharjah - Dundalk 17:20

Sharjah is a regular at this track, and while his losing run stretches back to July, he's running well at the moment, and came very close to returning to winning ways over two furlongs further here nine days ago, just getting edged out on the line after battling well. A natural front-runner, the slightly shorter trip may play into his hands this afternoon, and, off just 1 lb higher than last time, he gets the vote to pick up a much deserved success. Wild Shot got the better of the argument with Sharjah last time, but is 3 lb worse off this time around and may struggle to confirm the form.
