Timeform pick out three bets from Tramore on Thursday.


Sea Scorpion - Tramore 13:55

Sea Scorpion was in the process of running well when stumbling and unseating his rider at Limerick last time, finding plenty to go second as the field turned into the straight and looking sure to be placed before his unfortunate departure two-out. He certainly showed enough to suggest he is up to winning a race from his current mark and - 2 lb clear of his nearest rival on Timeform ratings here - Sea Scorpion is fancied to see off the attentions of Sweet Shirleen and can open his account over hurdles at the seventh time of asking.

Vicky's Charm - Tramore 14:25

Vicky's Charm shaped well when third on her chasing debut at Clonmel in October and can be forgiven a below par effort when outclassed in a Grade 3 back at the same venue last time. She can be expected to do better back in more suitable company here and Vicky's Charm is taken to add to her two hurdling victories for previous connections in the UK. Kala Brandy had some fair form to her name over hurdles and can give the selection most to do if building on the promise she showed when fourth on her chasing debut at Thurles in January.

Westland Row - Tramore 15:35

Westland Row wasn't seen to best effect when third on his most recent outing at Navan, shuffled back on the turn for home and enduring further trouble in-running when attempting to deliver his challenge in the closing stages. He is better-judged on the form of his earlier second at Punchestown and can confirm the promise of that effort with a first victory under Rules here. Mr Showtime shaped as if something may have been amiss when down the field at Fairyhouse last time and looks the main danger if bouncing back to his best.
