Timeform pick out three bets from Gowran Park on Wednesday evening.

"After just three starts and with an attractive pedigree to boot, she should have more to offer and can land the double this evening."

Expreso Brasileiro - 18:30 Gowran Park

Willie McCreery has his string in excellent form at present, and landed a Group 2 prize at the Curragh on the weekend with Devonshire. Expreso Brasileiro may well provide him with another winner today, too, with the form of his second at Limerick last time working out well. He may well have won that day, had he not conceded first run to the winner, and looks capable of defying this sort of mark. The Ice Meister was spared a hard race on return and may well be capable of better at some stage.

Shamreen - 19:30 Gowran Park

Ballybacka Queen sets the standard here and is solid enough at this sort of level, but she may well struggle to give lots of weight away to the unexposed Shamreen, who didn't have to improve to get off the mark for Dermot Weld over this C&D last time, but won with plenty in hand. After just three starts and with an attractive pedigree to boot, she should have more to offer and can land the double this evening. Siamsaiocht needs to learn to settle better, but also has the potential for improvement if doing so.

Double Fast - 21:00 Gowran Park

Double Fast might have got back to winning ways but for bumping into a thriving opponent at this track two starts back, and after shaping as if still in good form last time at Clonmel, he should go well here from just 1 lb above his last winning mark, with Pat Smullen now back in the saddle. Romantic is likely to be a big price after shaping as if amiss last time but could outrun big odds from a falling mark and with classic-winning jockey Chris Hayes taking the ride.
