Timeform pick out three bets from Cork on Saturday.

"He's been ridden by an apprentice on most of his recent starts, and Colin Keane taking over in the saddle is a Jockey Uplift on the Timeform Race Card."

Eagle Valley - Cork 14:25

Eagle Valley has been in fine form this winter, winning a handicap at Dundalk before taking a minor event on the snow at Saint Moritz last month, and she remains of interest back on turf. From the Tracey Collins yard that saddled Captain Joy to win the All-Weather Mile Championships Conditions Stakes yesterday, Eagle Valley is top rated by 2 lb for this race and promises to go close.

Full Court Press - Cork 15:35

Full Court Press caught the eye and produced his best effort to date in fourth at Dundalk last month, despite not being given a hard time. He's a Timeform Horse In Focus on the back of that effort, and the step up in trip to the extended mile ought to suit him here given he's a half-brother to both mile winner Loch Fleet and ten-furlong winner Love The Feeling out of a winner up to two miles. He also switches to a handicap.

Rockview Emperor - Cork 16:10

A big field is assembled for this handicap, also over the extended mile, but the answer could be Rockview Emperor who posted a trio of solid placed efforts off higher marks on turf last summer and can bounce back from a lesser effort when last seen on the all-weather in February. He's been ridden by an apprentice on most of his recent starts, and Colin Keane taking over in the saddle is a Jockey Uplift on the Timeform Race Card.
