Timeform pick out their three best bets from Kilbeggan on Tuesday...
"...he is the one to beat with improvement forthcoming..."
Timeform on Hardback
Holding Pattern justified strong support with a superb front-running display to make a winning hurdling debut from a subsequent winner at Punchestown, and she should have even more to offer in this sphere. This slightly longer trip should also suit and she should prove too strong for Osco Mosco, acknowledging improvement from the 5-y-o can't be ruled out, while Bang Bang Rosie was a ready winner last time out, too.
Hardback matched the pick of his hurdles form at the first attempt over fences when runner-up at Killarney three weeks ago and, on that evidence, he is the one to beat with improvement forthcoming. Kagney also finished second on chase debut and has been given time to recover from that, while Pravalaguna could be a different proposition this time.
Burndown is still relatively low mileage as a chaser and, following an encouraging comeback run, this could be the season he fulfils his potential. On the pick of his form, a mark of 114 shouldn't be beyond him, so with both his stable and jockey in fine form, he gets the narrow vote ahead of As De Pique and fascinating handicap chase debutant Exactoris.
