Timeform pick out three bets from Down Royal on Friday evening.
"Shutter Island ran right up to his best when third at Tipperary two starts ago, finishing a place behind next-time-out winner Garri Rua..."
Mai Fitz Jack - Down Royal 17:45
Mai Fitz Jack shaped as though a fair way ahead of his mark until his stamina gave way over two and a half miles on his handicap debut at Bellewstown in June, so he has a lot going for him back at two miles. Joseph O'Brien's seven-year-old is still very much unexposed after just three starts over hurdles and should has sound claims of grabbing the early lead here.
Black Waterfall - Down Royal 18:15
Black Waterfall shaped well on his debut for the Gordon Elliott yard on his return from six months off 19 days ago, and this lightly-raced eight-year-old remains open to improvement unlike many of his rivals, so looks the way to go in an open contest. He should also get this race run to suit as a hold-up horse with front runners Billybuster and Shamat part of a big field.
Shutter Island - Down Royal 19:15
Shutter Island ran right up to his best when third at Tipperary two starts ago, finishing a place behind next-time-out winner Garri Rua, and he's better judged on that effort having stumbled badly when making his challenge at Tramore subsequently. This J. P. McManus-owned six-year-old needs to prove he stays 2¾m, but he looked ready for this trip when staying on well over 2½m on that aforementioned run at Tipperary.
