Timeform pick out their three best bets from Carlisle on Monday...
"...providing she proves equally effective without that aid, the 5-y-o may well follow up."
Timeform on Calliope
MY AMIGO performed with plenty of credit at Goodwood over the weekend despite being unsuited by the drop to 6f and can come good back up in distance. Jacob Black arrives after a series of good efforts and is likely to go well again, while Weld Al Emarat shaped well on his Doncaster return in March and will very much enter the reckoning if strong in the betting back from a break.
A winner over hurdles on debut for this yard in June, RUBENESQUE resumes in this sphere on a potentially handy mark and makes plenty of appeal with Rachel Richardson doing the steering. Perla Blanca, Indian Vision and Circling Moon all arrive here in good form and Tyrell is not without each-way hope in an open-looking race.
CALLIOPE seemingly won with a bit in hand when equipped with a first-time tongue strap at Catterick and, providing she proves equally effective without that aid, the 5-y-o may well follow up. King of The Celts was back in fourth but may get closer this time if responding well to the new headgear, while Diamonds A Dancing, Golconda Prince and Snookered all have each-way claims.
