Timeform pick out three bets from Gowran Park on Saturday.


Howaya Hurricane - Gowran Park 14:10

Howaya Hurricane shaped better than the bare result would suggest when fifth on her most recent outing at Fairyhouse, left with too much to do under an overly patient ride and ultimately doing extremely well to get within seven lengths of the winner. That represented by far the best effort of her short career to date and - 1 lb clear of Catcheragain on Timeform ratings - Howaya Hurricane is taken to confirm the promise of last time and can open her account at the sixth attempt.

Zabana - Gowran Park 14:45

Zabana looked rusty on his return from six months off the track at Down Royal last time, keeping on at the one pace and not given a hard time once it became clear his chance had gone. He showed himself to be a smart performer when winning a Grade 1 at the Punchestown Festival in April and - 8 lb clear of his nearest rival on ratings - Zabana is expected to show the benefit of that latest outing and should prove too classy for the unexposed Kitten Rock in an interesting heat.

I Knew Well - Gowran Park 15:50

I Knew Well has some fairly useful form to his name over hurdles and took a step back in the right direction when three and three-quarter lengths third over fences at Naas last time. That represented by far his best effort over the larger obstacles to date and - likely to improve with that first outing for over four months under his belt - I Knew Well is fancied to see off the attentions of the thriving Show And Go and can take advantage of what looks a more than fair mark.
