Timeform pick out three bets from Killarney on Wednesday evening.


Atlas - 16:10 Killarney

The Denis Hogan-trained ATLAS showed improved form to open his account in some style at Leopardstown six days ago, forging clear in the manner of one well ahead of his mark. He looks well-treated here under a 6-lb penalty and he is taken to continue his good run of form since being fitted with blinkers. The eight-year-old Avalanche is being kept busy but he is holding his form well, while Sorelle Delle Rose is unexposed after just three starts and she should strip fitter for her reappearance at Cork earlier this month.

Psychedelic Funk - 16:45 Killarney

PSYCHEDELIC FUNK made the most of a good opportunity down in grade at Naas four weeks ago and he sets the standard here, so is taken to follow up. He is 3 lb clear of his nearest rival on weight-adjusted ratings and is expected to continue his progress now stepped up to 1m. With Raymonda a non-runner, Ceol Na Nog looks the biggest danger assuming he copes with the step back in trip.

Mr Everest - 17:50 Killarney

Dalton Highway tops the ratings and is expected to fare better than on heavy ground at Galway last time, however this soft ground may still be against him. It will suit MR EVEREST though, who wasn't immediately able to build on his successful Curragh debut (soft ground) last time, but looks on a decent mark now switched to handicapping and could be the answer here. Jeremys Joy was an authoritative winner at Roscommon last time and looks the biggest danger.
