Timeform pick out three bets from Fairyhouse and Cork on Sunday.
"He was always towards the front on that occasion before asserting under a hands and heels ride..."
Lift The Latch - Fairyhouse 15:40
Lift the Latch has already shown fairly useful form in two starts over hurdles to date and the way he forged clear at Gowran Park just eight days ago was impressive. He was always towards the front on that occasion before asserting under a hands and heels ride and, although he makes a quick reappearance here, he didn't appear to take too much out of himself with that easy victory. This longer trip looks sure to bring about further improvement and Lift The Latch is taken to get the better of American for a first victory at Graded level.
Velocity Boy - Cork 15:55
Velocity Boy was a real eyecatcher when second on his handicap debut at Navan earlier this month and the way he finished that day suggests this longer trip will be in his favour. The handicapper has put him up 2 lb for that encouraging effort, but Velocity Boy was making his return from 11 months off the track on that occasion and is entitled to improve for the outing. He can register the third victory of his career under rules here, while Last Goodbye put up a career-best over a longer trip last time and appeals as the most likely to fill the forecast spot.
Narcissistic - Fairyhouse 17:25
This is always a trick contest with no previous form to go on, but Narcissistic makes plenty of appeal for his powerful connections. There are bumper winners in his immediate family and with leading amateur Jamie Codd in the saddle, this expensive purchase is fancied to make a winning debut under rules. Zen Master is also related to some fairly useful performers in this sphere and can give the selection most to do.
