Timeform pick out three bets from the Curragh and Killarney on Saturday.


"The bare form of that effort gives her plenty to find with the likes of McGuigan on Timeform ratings, but she remains relatively unexposed after just five starts..."

Sea Light - Killarney 14:25

Sea Light looked a real threat to the winner when crashing out at the final flight at Galway last time and should be up to winning off this mark on that evidence. That represented another missed opportunity for this four-time winner (had looked an unlucky loser when second at that venue just four days previously), but he is clearly thriving at present and - 2 lb clear of Little Mitch on Timeform ratings - Sea Light is fancied to gain the victory his recent efforts have deserved.


Yulong Baobei - Curragh 15:20

Yulong Baobei produced a career-best when successful on her most recent outing in a listed race at Tipperary, travelling strongly throughout on the front end and quickly forging clear when asked for her effort in the final furlong. She showed enough that day to suggest she is well worth her place in a race of this nature and - 4 lb clear of Sportsmanship on Timeform ratings - Yulong Baobei should prove extremely difficult to peg back if adopting positive tactics again here.


Indrahar - Curragh 15:55

Indrahar shaped well when second on her handicap debut at Fairyhouse last month and confirmed the promise of that outing with a comfortable success on her most recent outing at Cork. The bare form of that effort gives her plenty to find with the likes of McGuigan on Timeform ratings, but she remains relatively unexposed after just five starts in her short career to date and is expected to continue on her upward curve with a defeat of the recent C&D winner Plough Boy here.

Back Sea Light in the 14:25 at Killarney
Back Yulong Baobei in the 15:20 at the Curragh
Back Indrahar in the 15:55 at the Curragh
