Timeform pick out three bets from Sligo on Tuesday evening.


"A useful performer for the David Evans yard in his prime, he gave the impression he would be winning off this mark before long..."

The Ice Meister - Sligo 18:00

The Ice Meister produced by far his best effort of the season when fourth at Down Royal recently, keeping on well to be beaten a little over two lengths and again giving the impression this trip is well within his range. He is without a win since August 2014, but this is a far weaker race than he has been contesting of late and - 4 lb clear of all bar Specific Gravity on Timeform ratings - The Ice Meister is expected to regain the winning thread here.

Norville - Sligo 19:00

Norville may have been suited by how the race developed when dropped back to this trip at Down Royal last time, but he still deserves credit for the way he responded under pressure in the closing stages and only found one too good on the day. A useful performer for the David Evans yard in his prime, he gave the impression he would be winning off this mark before long and Norville is taken to do so with a defeat of the consistent No Way Jack here.

Northern Sky - Sligo 20:30

Northern Sky shaped as if a step up to this longer trip would be in his favour when second at Hamilton last month, delivering his challenge as the field entered the final furlong and finding only a similarly progressive type too strong. He remains open to more improvement after just five starts and - blinkered for the first time - Northern Sky can confirm the promise of that outing with a verdict over recent Tipperary winner Miss Ballygally.
