There is high-class Flat racing from the Curragh on Sunday
There is high-class Flat racing from the Curragh on Sunday

Timeform pick out three bets from the Curragh and Tramore on Sunday.


Ligeti - Tramore 13:50

Ligeti carries over plenty of ability from the level (won two of his 13 starts) and his yard are adept at getting hurdling newcomers ready. He can account for a moderate field now switched to this discipline. Glan Y Gors, another ex-Flat horse, also makes plenty of appeal after a positive start over timber for the Alan Fleming yard, as does the newcomer The Brassmoulder.

Hey Little Boy - Tramore 14:55

Hey Little Boy filled the runner-up spot on his third and final start on the Flat in Germany last year and is of strong interest on debut in this sphere, having joined the Willie Mullins yard. High Nellie and Theydon Park, who had been running well before unseating his rider at Galway last time, are the key players on form, but Creadan Grae may emerge as the main threat.

Happily - Curragh 15:20

Happily did well to pull effortlessly clear off a steady pace at Leopardstown last month and she looks sure to progress further. She can take the step up in grade in her stride for the Aidan O'Brien yard that has won three of the last four renewals of this race. Stablemate September produced a smart effort when scoring at Royal Ascot and can give the selection most to do.
