Timeform pick out three bets from Naas on Wednesday evening.


"Indeed, the way he travelled through the race was the most eye-catching aspect of that victory..."

Forebear - Naas 18:30

Forebear made a successful return from over 10 months off the track at Downpatrick on Saturday, showing improved form on his first start for the Paddy Twomey yard and giving the impression he would be suited by the drop back to this shorter trip. Indeed, the way he travelled through the race was the most eye-catching aspect of that victory and, although he was all out to hold on in the closing stages, he shaped as if still well ahead of his mark. He has a 5 lb penalty to contend with here, but Forebear should prove too strong for Doonard Prince if arriving in the same form as last time.

Discipline - Naas 19:30

Discipline may have been flattered by her proximity to a heavily eased rival last time, but that effort still represented a useful level of form on her first start in pattern company and a similar performance would leave her rivals with 6 lb to find on Timeform ratings here. She is entitled to improve after just two outings in her short career to date and - a sister to the yard's very smart Famous Name - Discipine is expected to win this on her way to better things. Earring is similarly well-bred and can give the selection most to do after appearing to win with plenty in hand at Gowran Park.

Palmones - Naas 20:00

Palmones was disappointing on her penultimate start at Navan, but she was well-fancied to make amends at Gowran Park on Sunday and found the necessary improvement to get off the mark on just her fourth start in a handicap. She did admittedly have the run of the race on that occasion, but it was hard not be impressed with the way she extended her advantage in the closing stages and connections have understandably taken the decision to turn her out quickly under a 5 lb penalty here. Palmones can follow up if reproducing that level of form, with Pension Madness feared most of the remainder.
