Timeform pick out three bets from Sligo on Tuesday evening.


Bay Hill - Sligo 17:50

Bay Hill shaped well third in a big field at Killarney last month and is taken to add to his two Flat wins in the spring. Recent course runner-up Broughtons Star is an obvious theat for the Gordon Elliott/Davy Russell combination, while Kilkeaskins First travelled well when fourth over 17.5f at Ballinrobe last time and looks well worth this go back down at 2m.

Sparky Stowaway - Sligo 18:50

Sparky Stowaway shaped with some promise on his hurdling debut and is worth another chance to build on that effort having not really been seen to best effect at Killarney five weeks ago. He shades the vote in a tricky affair, though market support for Full Batten on debut for Gordon Elliott would put a different slant on things.

Ancient Empire - Sligo 19:20

Ancient Empire ran his best race to date, that despite suggesting a much stiffer test would suit ideally when third over 2m at Kilbeggan recently. This ought to be right up his street on that evidence and he can do better now handicapping. Bronco Bill showed plenty of ability remains on the back of a lengthy absence at Roscommon in June and heads up the dangers.
