Timeform pick out three bets from Tipperary on Friday evening.

"He can win this before going on to better things still (holds plenty of fancy entries)."

Shanghai Beauty - 17:25 Tipperary

Horses can often be worth taking on after racking up sequences and therefore inevitably climbing sharply up the handicap, but that is not the case with Shanghai Beauty, who completed her hat-trick at Bellewstown last time in ready fashion, going away at the finish. She is up another 6 lb in the handicap here in a better race, but she is still clearly continuing to thrive based on her last win, and will take plenty of beating again here. Master Speaker continues to frustrate for win purposes but ran well last time at the Curragh and has place claims again here.

Capri - 17:55 Tipperary

An interesting listed feature which can go to Aidan O'Brien's Capri, who went one better than on debut at the Curragh when winning a maiden at the Galway Festival last week. Capri won with a good deal more in hand that day than the two-and-a-half-length winning margin would suggest (pushed out under hands and heels) and he can win this before going on to better things still (holds plenty of fancy entries). Dermot Weld's Right Honourable also won a maiden at Galway last week and looks the obvious danger on his third start.

Lily's Prince - 19:30 Tipperary

Lily's Prince was perhaps unlucky to bump into the thriving Three Bells last time at Down Royal (that one recording his second win in three days) but pulled a little way clear of the rest of the field that day. The race is working out fairly well with the three-year-old in fourth Intense Stylist going close next time out, and Lily's Prince ought to return to winning ways here after a couple of creditable performances. She has dropped a long way in the handicap since last winning (won off 9 lb higher last season) and looks to have been found a good opportunity to win again here. The lightly raced Valentana got back on track last time and is also one to bear in mind.
