Timeform pick out three bets from Bellewstown on Thursday.


Youngnedofthehill - Bellewstown 17:15

Youngnedofthehill beat a subsequent winner at Ballinrobe last time and remains potentially well treated despite a 9 lb hike in the weights here. Indeed, that form gives him the edge over Baron Von Chill on Timeform ratings and Shane Nolan's charge is taken to go in again, with Broughtons Star feared most for the Gordon Elliott yard that has won this race twice in recent years.

Carlitos Bay - Bellewstown 17:45

Carlitos Bay was a decisive winner in first-time blinkers at Cork last time, leading on the bridle after three-out and quickly forging clear in the closing stages. He seems sure to go well again under Ruby Walsh if arriving in the same mood, despite a hefty rise in the weights. Holly Flight ought to be capable of better still and rates the main danger to the selection.

Anytime Now - Bellewstown 18:15

Anytime Now showed useful form in bumpers, including when winning by 27 lengths at Kilbeggan three weeks ago, and makes his hurdling bow in a race where the majority have questions to answer here. He is fancied, therefore, to open his account at the first time of asking in this sphere, with Iolani and Young Turk, who have both shown promise over hurdles, heading the dangers.
