Timeform pick out three bets from Down Royal on Wednesday evening...
"The form of that race took a boost when the winner followed up at the same track on Sunday..."
Tiger Sam scored at this track from the same handicap mark in 2016, and after shaping as if better for the run on his return from 6 months off at Navan 11 days ago, he gets the vote now down in grade slightly. Goldmineinthesky and Killare Castle who likely would have won but for falling latest, are others to consider.
A big field but plenty of dead wood, and the most likely winner is Celtic Rising, who left his hurdling debut form behind when runner-up at Limerick five weeks ago, and is likely to progress further for his top connections. Falak looks another progressive sort and is the obvious threat.
Urbanist arrives here at the top of his game having won at Punchestown and then finished a close second at Naas last time. The form of that race took a boost when the winner followed up at the same track on Sunday, and Urbanist should go close here despite being raised a few lb in the weights. Apache Jack is well treated now if he puts it all together, while Our Boy Boru isn't ruled out returning to a handicap.
