Timeform pick out three bets from Sligo on Wednesday evening.


"All Crazy Now is taken to defy his big weight and get off the mark at the fourth time of asking..."

All Crazy Now - Sligo 18:30

All Crazy Now was disappointing when down the field on his most recent outing at Leopardstown, but appeared unsuited by the drop back to six furlongs on that occasion and deserves another chance to confirm the positive impression he created when third at Gowran Park in June. The form of that effort gives him the edge over Steelyeyed on Timeform ratings here and, with the possibility of more to come in a visor for the first time, All Crazy Now is taken to defy his big weight and get off the mark at the fourth time of asking.

Sea Swift - Sligo 20:00

Sea Swift shaped well when seventh on her racecourse debut at Leopardstown in June and showed the benefit of that outing with an impressive success at Naas last time. She appeared to have all angles covered from an early stage that day, travelling smoothly into contention and looking a fairly useful prospect as she asserted in the final furlong. She remains open to more improvement after just two starts and - 4 lb clear of her nearest rival on Timeform ratings - Sea Swift is expected to take this on her way to better things.

Banff - Sligo 21:00

Banff fared better than the bare result when second on his most recent outing at Killarney, forced to deliver his challenge from further back than ideal and ultimately doing extremely well to get within three lengths of the better-placed winner. That effort still represented the best effort of his short career to date and, although Aa Bee See would be a danger if returning to the form he showed when second at Wexford in May, Banff is fancied to confirm the promise of his latest outing and belatedly shed his maiden tag.
