Timeform pick out three bets from Fairyhouse on Saturday.


The Green Lady - Fairyhouse 14:20

The Green Lady scored in good style in a novice at Punchestown 3 days ago and she looks well in under a penalty returning to handicaps, so is taken to follow up at the expense of the in-form Court Challenge. Pat Fahy's six-year-old is still lightly raced after just seven starts, four of them over hurdles, and she didn't appear to have too much of a hard race the other day given she won by eight lengths.

That's A Wrap - Fairyhouse 14:55

That's A Wrap completed a handicap hat-trick at Leopardstown in December and, while he found his winning run coming to an end there last time, he didn find himself in unfavourable circumstances having been left with too much to do. He still did enough to think he's ahead of his reassessed mark and is taken to prove that point if more goes his way today. The likeable Presenting Percy is next on the list.

Baie des Iles - Fairyhouse 15:30

Baie des Iles seemingly benefited no end from a switch to forcing tactics when winning at Punchestown last time and could be hard to beat in this Grade 3 Bobbjo Chase. She proved better than ever when beating Sambremont by four and three quarter lengths that day, worth credit in full even allowing for the rather unorthodox way the race played out (she was soon well clear and not much got into the race), and it's worth remembering that she's still only six.
