There is Flat racing from Gowran Park on Tuesday

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Gowran Park on Tuesday...

"She strikes as the type who will make above-average improvement..."

Timeform on Singer

Singer - 13:45 Gowran Park

Well-bred filly Singer was really getting the hang of things when third starting out at the Curragh in August, ridden under three furlongs out, and staying on well in the closing stages. She strikes as the type who will make above-average improvement, she very much looks the way to go. This looks a pretty deep contest, though, with Oiche Re Gealai open to progress, while Chablis is a likely newcomer on paper.

Tankerville - 14:45 Gowran Park

Those with experience don't set an exacting standard, so Tankerville, a well-connected newcomer, may well be up to the task. A Kitten's Joy colt, who is a half-brother to useful two-year-old 7f winner Flavius, he makes plenty of appeal on paper for leading connections, and it bodes well that he has been strong in the market this morning. Top Line Tommy also ticks a few boxes on paper, while Focus Required showed enough at Naas to make him of interest.

Royal Navy Warship - 15:15 Gowran Park

Royal Navy Warship again shaped better than the bare result at Dundalk 11 days ago, always on the back foot after blowing the start, but the manner in which he saw out the finish means he's well worth persevering with, so therefore is well worth another chance from this mark. Centrifolia showed big progress when just failing on her handicap bow over C&D last week and is the obvious threat.
