Timeform pick out their three best bets from Galway on Tuesday...

"...his strength at the finish suggested he will soon be adding to his tally."

Timeform on Hearts Are Trumps

Petit Tartare - Galway 14:40

Both Petit Tartare and Epswell made a successful transition to hurdling last time and with improvement forthcoming, they could be the pair to focus on. There's more substance to the former's performance, he stayed on well to score at Listowel last time, so he is just preferred. Kellyiscool is perhaps best of the rest.

Hearts Are Trumps - Galway 15:15

Hearts Are Trumps took another step forward when runner-up at Ballinrobe in August, suggesting that he would step forward again when stepped up to two and a half miles, and his strength at the finish suggested he will soon be adding to his tally. Star Maker and Ingleby Mackenzie are a couple of others going the right way and are feared most.

Mind's Eye - Galway 16:15

Mind's Eye was inferior to Voix du Reve over timber, but the former is every inch a chaser, while the latter has a Flat background, so Henry de Bromhead's 6-y-o could be the way to go. Indian Monsoon also starts out over fences for a successful yard and may well be best of the rest.
