There is jumps racing from Carlisle on Sunday

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

"...there should be even more to come from him in this sphere..."

Timeform on Lord Getaway

River Glades - 15:10 Carlisle

River Glades is an imposing sort and shaped encouragingly on his hurdling debut at Newcastle a month ago, handy but too free on his first start in this sphere, yet to be asked for and effort when crossing two out. He had no extra after, but given his Flat ability, there should be plenty more to come with that experience under his belt. He's been found a weak race so is expected to get off the mark, with For Three the obvious threat.

Lord Getaway - 15:45 Carlisle

Several of these have something to prove but Lord Getaway looks one to be positive about and a 10 lb rise may not prevent him completing a hat-trick. He was strong in the betting and showed a good attitude to win back over hurdles last time but there should be even more to come from him in this sphere and this looks a good opportunity. Donna's Delight seems a fairly assured jumper and is likely to be on the premises again, while Petiville could also be a factor following an encouraging run at Kelso 10 days ago.

Stainsby Girl - 17:15 Carlisle

It's not easy to quantify what Stainsby Girl achieved when running out a wide-margin winner of a C&D bumper in December but she clearly possesses a fair amount of ability, so is worth siding with to successfully concede a penalty. Lugg River is a danger on her Ludlow form, with Tortuga Bay another to consider following her point victory.
