Timeform pick out their three best bets from Cork on Wednesday...

"...she's well bred and in good hands so there should be a bigger performance in her."

Timeform on Frosty Beach

Frosty Beach - Cork 14:05

Frosty Beach didn't progress a great deal from her debut when fifth at the Curragh last time, racing freely that day, but she's well bred and in good hands so there should be a bigger performance in her. Hummingbird should also have more to offer after a break, while Coral Beach sets the standard but remains a maiden.

Ship Of Dreams - Cork 15:05

Ship Of Dreams is still on the upgrade judged on recent efforts and sets the standard having gone close in a Group 3 at Gowran last time. She's as genuine as they come, and is taken to gain a much-deserved second career success. North Face looked a very good prospect when making a winning debut at Navan and may emerge as the biggest threat ahead of Baroness and Zorion.

Escallonia - Cork 15:35

Escallonia gave the impression that should would be of interest in handicaps when fourth at Cork 7 days ago, keeping on that day, and she begins life in handicaps from a very appealing mark. With plenty of potential going forward, she can come out on top. Liberty Lass boasts a similar profile and is feared most, ahead of Passing Trade.
