Timeform pick out their best three bets from the Curragh...

"...it would be no surprise, given her connections and pedigree, were she to find a good deal of improvement now her attentions are turned to nurseries..."

Timeform on Cuban Surfer

Fire Fly - 13:45 Curragh

Aidan O'Brien should dominate this maiden and, while Fire Fly hasn't achieved as much as might have been expected to this point, she has the experience edge on her stablemates and Ryan Moore rarely gets it wrong when taking his pick from this stable. Of the trainer's other representatives, Mona Lisa's Smile (by Deep Impact) looks likely to be a bit more forward than Credenza (by Galileo).

Cuban Surfer - 14:20 Curragh

Cuban Surfer shaped well on debut and, while she has failed to build on that, it would be no surprise, given her connections and pedigree, were she to find a good deal of improvement now her attentions are turned to nurseries. Evasive Power is tackling lesser opposition than last time and clearly comes into the equation along with Facethepuckout.

Magical - 15:30 Curragh

Magical doesn't have the same scope as September, but the latter has a longer-than-ideal absence to overcome having been last seen finishing second at the Breeders' Cup and the selection gets the approval of Ryan Moore, so she's taken to come out on top in a contest that the pair should dominate. I'm So Fancy is the clear pick of the remainder.
