Timeform pick out three bets from Limerick on Thursday.

Timeform on Some Neck

Rooster Byron - 15:45 Limerick

It's a little surprising that Rooster Byron's hurdling mark hasn't suffered more on the back of his winning chasing debut recently and there's a good chance he can capitalise despite the presence of several others who are going the right way. Battling Spirit and the hat-trick seeking Spancil Hill are just a couple of the dangers.

Some Neck - 16:20 Limerick

Some Neck has long appealed as the type that would come into his own over fences, and he looked a good prospect when making a winning start in this sphere after 13 months off at Gowran Park in February. He jumped better as the race went on, and was well on top at the finish, suggesting that he will improve further for this step up to three miles. The runner-up that day advertised the form by winning his next start and, though he faces a tough rival in the shape of stablemate Kemboy, Some Neck is expected to prove too strong and keep his unbeaten record over fences intact.

Edene d'Arc - 17:30 Limerick

Edene d'Arc made plenty of appeal on pedigree but caused somewhat of a shock when winning on her debut at Gowran Park in January by three and three quarter lengths from the reopposing Young Ted. The way she quickened in the closing stages that day suggested she is above average and, with further improvement forthcoming, she is expected to confirm placings with Young Ted despite that one having won since.
