Timeform's Irish team have picked out three bets for racing at Sligo on Tuesday evening.

"She gets the nod having gone well after a break previously..."

Sligo 18:30 - Three Colours Red

Three Colours Red is unsurprisingly turned out quickly following his much improved effort in a Tramore minor event at the weekend, and he shades the vote in the hope he can back that up reverting to handicap company now. Should he fail to fire, La Galondrina is feared most, ahead of Chicago Secret and Plain Talking.

Sligo 19:00 - Sr Cartage

Sr Cartage is clearly not one of Jim Bolger's leading lights but she will undoubtedly find this more manageable than her Curragh assignment when last seen in June. She gets the nod having gone well after a break previously, with Temasek Star, Sister Slew and Irish Reel making up the shortlist.

Sligo 20:00 - Slygufftou

Slygufftou is in the form of his life at present, recording another career best to win a handicap hurdle at Galway last time, and he looks the way to go again here, so he is taken to land the hat-trick. Medinah Gold was behind the selection that day, and may give him most to do again, whilst Steel King is forgiven his latest run.

Back Three Colours Red in the 18:30
Back Sr Cartage in the 19:00
