Timeform bring you their three best bets from the card at Limerick on Saturday...

"Charles Byrnes' six-year-old was a bumper winner and can get off the mark on the level here."

Orangey Red - Limerick 15:40

Three-year-old Orangey Red won by nine lengths in a seven-furlong maiden at this track on her return and, in receipt of a handy weight-for-age allowance, she can follow up in this mile handicap. Unsurprisingly for a horse bred and owned by Moyglare Stud, Orangey Red has a good pedigree - she's closely related to six-furlong winner Lapis Blue and is a half-sister to winner up to a mile Go For Goal and ten-furlong winner Absinthe (both useful) - and she can continue her improvement this afternoon.

Full Court Press - Limerick 16:50

Full Court Press couldn't build on his encouraging handicap debut (third over the extended mile at Cork in March) when mid-field at Dundalk last time, but the step up from a mile to 11 furlongs this afternoon could be just what's required given how he's shaped so far (dam won over an extended two miles). Soft ground holds no fears for Full Court Press either as his aforementioned third came on heavy.

Red House Hill - Limerick 17:25

Red House Hill and Pat Harkin are closely matched on their C&D running a fortnight ago, but the former wasn't seen to best effect that day (conceded first run) and gets the nod to reverse the placings with that rival with Pat Smullen taking over in the saddle. Charles Byrnes' six-year-old was a bumper winner and can get off the mark on the level here.
