Timeform on Inshibel

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Leopardstown and Limerick on Thursday...

South Sea Pearl - 20:30 Leopardstown

With Aidan O'Brien having half the field, it looks with siding with the choice of Ryan Moore in the shape of SOUTH SEA PEARL. She drops from group company to a listed contest despite being unlucky not to finish closer by hanging in behind the leaders when finishing behind stable mate Peach Tree in the Stanerra Stakes last time. She looks a filly full of stamina so the quicker they go, the better for her and with her clear on weight adjusted ratings, she can gain a second success.

Inshibel - 18:10 Limerick

INSHIBEL showed an upturn in form on her latest start when getting off the mark at Downpatrick, with a possible switch to a smaller field bringing out that improvement as she was always up with what was a steady pace. The first two pulled clear that day, suggesting she has the potential to follow up under a penalty. Her last attempt at this trip saw her travel keenly but her best form has come under Bryan Cooper and he retains the ride for today's contest now back up in trip. If he can help her relax, she should take some beating.

Milomynit - 18:40 Limerick

An attempt to go chasing for MILOMYNIT was soon abandoned after she was pulled up on her chase debut and has since returned to the hurdling sphere and wasted no time getting back on track. She was worn down late in the day at Downpatrick by a well-handicapped rival. She shapes as if this extra furlong is within reach and break her maiden tag here despite a small rise in the weights against plenty out of form rivals.
