Timeform pick out three bets from Downpatrick.


Classic Place - 17:15 Downpatrick

The way in which Classic Place stopped when he was last seen at Thurles suggested he probably had some sort of problem (found to be blowing hard post-race), but has been given time to recover from that and is the form pick on his earlier form, so he's well worth another chance. Atlantic Breaker can remain competitive, with Westland Row open to progress.

Loose Ends - 17:45 Downpatrick

Loose Ends has essentially gone backwards from her promising debut in December, again below form at Clonmel last time, but she was given a considerate ride that day, and looks the type to make her mark in handicaps for her top yard. Good To Flow and My Betty look the main form dangers.

Fly Rory Fly - 18:15 Downpatrick

Fly Rory Fly ran below form in a bumper last time but he sets the standard on his hurdling form prior to that, which included a good second at this track back in March. Blinkers go on today, and the switch back to hurdling could see him get off the mark today. The Gordon Elliott pair Polymath and Rock Lobster look best of the rest.
