Timeform pick out three bets from Cork on Tuesday evening.

"Harlequeen is some 5 lb clear of this field based on that last run..."

Indrahar - 18:55 Cork

Indrahar has a progressive-looking profile heading in to her second handicap start today, having finished second to Smash Williams on her second maiden start before winning at Dundalk on her final start at two. Indrahar then improved on her handicap debut upped to seven furlongs at Fairyhouse last month, and should have more to offer still with that reappearance under her belt. Ottilie didn't have to improve to win her maiden last time, and looks the main danger to Indrahar.

Rose de Pierre - 19:25 Cork

Rose de Pierre holds a Group 1 entry and looks a potentially smart filly after an impressive handicap win at the Curragh on just her second start last time out (beating a subsequent winner in third) and is expected to take this listed event before perhaps going on to better things at group level. Jim Bolger's Flight Risk takes a step down in class after a creditable fifth in a Group 2 last time and looks to be the danger, though Rose de Pierre could well improve past her here.

Harlequeen - 20:25 Cork

Harlequeen managed to finish third in the Oaks despite seemingly not being completely suited by the unique tests of the track at Epsom, but she narrowed the gap to Architecture in the Irish equivalent when that pair filled the same places (second and third) which signified plenty of improvement on what she had already achieved. Harlequeen is some 5 lb clear of this field based on that last run, and looks to have been found a good opportunity to get off the mark in group company. Somehow was fifth behind the selection in the Irish Oaks, but doesn't look the finished article yet and could get closer today.
