Timeform pick out their three best bets from Gowran Park on Saturday.

"Mtada Supreme also has the assistance of promising conditional Donagh Meyler in the saddle for the first time."

Toushan - Gowran 15:20

Toushan has was two chases this season, in a maiden at Cork in November and in a handicap over C&D in February, and he ran another good race when third of nine to Toon River in a handicap chase over 2¼m here last time. This is a competitive race, with Wilcos Mo Chara and Railway Tommy heading the list of dangers, but Toushan could be the way to go from his reduced hurdles mark.

Jett - Gowran 15:55

Jessica Harrington's Jett - as his name suggests, a half-brother to both the top-class hurdler Jezki and the very smart hurdler Jetson - made a winning start to his hurdling career at Leopardstown at the end of last month and it's fair to assume there could be a fair bit more to come from him given his pedigree. Jett got the better of perennial bridesmaid Space Cadet that day, and the fourth Stowaway Shark has won since.

Mtada Supreme - Gowran 17:05

Mtada Supreme has shown fairly useful ability on a few occasions in cross-country/hunter chases, including when nine and three-quarter lengths fifth of 12 to Ballyboker Bridge in a cross-country event at Punchestown last time, and he's well worth a look here switching to a handicap. He could be well treated given two of the three that finished in front of him at Punchestown in November are useful performers, as are three of the four that finished in front of him on his latest outing. Mtada Supreme also has the assistance of promising conditional Donagh Meyler in the saddle for the first time.
