Timeform pick out three bets from a high-quality card at the Curragh on Sunday.


Pivot Bridge - Curragh 15:55

Pivot Bridge took a step back in the right direction when third at Listowel last time and can land the Amateur Riders Derby this afternoon. He's well treated if building on his latest performance having eased 4 lb to his lowest ITC mark (66) since winning in January 2014 and should also be suited by the drop back to a mile and a half given he's yet to prove himself over further.

Downforce - Curragh 16:30

Downforce got firmly back on track when a close fourth of 17 to British raider New Bidder over six furlongs at this course a fortnight ago and he looks fairly treated if back on the progressive path. Willie McCreery's four-year-old gelding has only had 10 starts, winning three of them, and could well have more to offer.

Complicit - Curragh 17:35

Complicit very much caught the eye when fifth here (patiently ridden over six furlongs) four weeks ago and the return to a mile will be in his favour on what is only his third start for this yard. Complicit is potentially thrown-in on the form shown for his previous trainer Paul Cole and is one to bear in mind today, while he'll also be interesting if heading to Dundalk in the near future, as his last five victories were achieved on artificial surfaces.
