Timeform pick out three bets from Listowel on Saturday.


"He was simply given too much to do on the day, but stayed on strongly when asked for his effort in the closing stages..."

All The Answers - Listowel 14:20

All The Answers was an impressive winner of his most recent outing at Galway, travelling strongly into contention as the field entered the straight and quickening decisively to head the useful Silver Concorde soon after. That form leaves him 5 lb clear of his nearest rival on Timeform ratings here and - open to more improvement after just five starts under Rules - All The Answers is fancied to see off the attentions of Penhill and can take this en route to bigger and better things.

Clonalig House - Listowel 15:30

Clonalig House built on earlier promise and showed improved form to get off the mark on his most recent outing at Tipperary. He was arguably value for more than the official winning margin on that occasion, forced to deliver his challenge from further back than ideal and ultimately doing extremely well to score as cosily as he did. He has a 9 lb hike in the weights to contend with here, but remains capable of better and is expected to prove too strong for 2015 winner Buster Dan Dan.

Curragh Golan - Listowel 16:05

Curragh Golan shaped as if still in good form and left the impression he should have finished closer when fourth at Galway last time. He was simply given too much to do on the day, but stayed on strongly when asked for his effort in the closing stages and showed enough to suggest he is up to winning a race off his current mark. Sir Abbot would be an obvious danger if returning to the form of his second at Roscommon in June, but Curragh Golan is taken to gain the victory his consistency deserves.
