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

"...hit the front over a furlong out last time so the drop in trip looks a good move and he can rattle off a quick fire hat-trick."

Timeform on High Altitude

Charlie Bassett - 16:35 Bellewstown

This contest looks to be between the two market leaders at the time of writing with ready preference for CHARLIE BASSETT to get his head in front at the third time of asking. His debut effort saw him hint at ability having been forced wide but did keep on at the one pace. The leader pulled clear and he was in the next wave suggesting he can win a race. His next start saw him drop to six furlongs at Naas when he was a never nearer third and ran out of yardage when starting to click into top gear. The step back up to seven will help and with Colin Keane on board, he can break his maiden tag in this minor event.

High Altitude - 17:35 Bellewstown

HIGH ALTITUDE heads to Bellewstown this evening on a hat-trick after two wins at Killarney in the previous week. He is obviously thriving at present and despite the big weight, he can go in again. He only just prevailed last time when all out to hold on from the second, so doesn't appear well treated, but he drops back in trip here. John Joseph Murphy's charge hit the front over a furlong out last time so the drop in trip looks a good move and he can rattle off a quick fire hat-trick.

Gospies Daugther - 18:35 Bellewstown

GOSPIES DAUGHTER has been a bit hit and miss recently by putting in a good effort and failing to build on that, including when a good third last time at Down Royal. She has dropped in the weights since her below-par Navan performance on her penultimate start and if putting that record behind her and can build on her latest start, she can go in here. She is currently 10 lb below her last winning mark so is extremely well handicapped and despite lacking confidence, if she gets her head back in front she could get back on the up from her lowly mark.
