Timeform pick out three bets from Bellewstown on Wednesday.


Poetic Light - 16:45 Bellewstown

This doesn't look a great maiden, and Poetic Light looks the way to go after an improved effort at Leopardstown last time. It's worth noting that he has been gelded since, which could bring about further improvement, so is fancied to open his account at the third attempt. Angelique remains unexposed and also merits respect, while Liars Corner is an interesting newcomer.

Pillar - 18:45 Bellewstown

A very tightly-knit handicap, but Pillar had both Catwilldo and Olaudah behind him when finishing runner-up for the second start in succession at Ayr recently and is taken to resume winning ways for the Adrian McGuinness team off what still looks a fair mark. Last-time-out Curragh winner Sweetest Taboo is likely to go well again and may prove next best ahead of the aforementioned Catwilldo.

High Expectations - 19:45 Bellewstown

High Expectations had several of these rivals behind him when scoring at Tramore last time, and he remains relatively low-mileage on the Flat, so has the potential to do better still, he's a fairly useful hurdler after all. Shoulda Lied and Lost History finished close up behind the selection on that occasion and look the most likely dangers again.
