Timeform Shortlist: Killarney, Monday May 15

5.10 Sheila Mac Kelliher Memorial Maiden Hurdle 2½m

Timeform Top Rated:
133p 13. JETZ Mrs J. Harrington Robbie Power
128 6. CARRIGMOORNA MATT Vincent Laurence Halley Philip Enright
125 1. HAROLD PETO Alan Fleming Denis O'Regan

Analyst's Verdict:
Jetz has solid claims back in this sphere after making a promising go of it first time over hurdles in January. Moroval and Chosen Hour are a couple of the other likely sorts.
5.40 Kelly Brothers Sliabh Luachra Hurdle 2½m

Timeform Top Rated:
170 8. ARBRE DE VIE W. P. Mullins R. Walsh
157? 10. FLAXEN FLARE Gordon Elliott J. W. Kennedy
152 4. PLINTH Joseph Patrick O'Brien M. P. Walsh

Analyst's Verdict:
A race that revolves around Arbre de Vie, and his backers, who have had a frustrating time following him over the last couple of years, could finally bring home the bacon again. Plinth is the obvious one for the forecast.
6.10 Killarney Racecourse Handicap Hurdle 2¾m

Timeform Top Rated:
149 3. MISS ME NOW W. P. Mullins R. Walsh
148 12. CLARA SORRENTO Noel Meade B. J. Cooper
147 2. AH LITTLELUCK T. Gibney Jonathan Moore

Analyst's Verdict:
Fresh could be the time to catch Miss Me Now who looks fairly treated on the form she showed when scoring at Clonmel last autumn and can make a winning handicap debut after 5 months off. British raider Miss Maiden Over has won 3 of her last 4 starts and should go well again, while Clara Sorrento will be suited by the step back up in trip after getting going too late at Punchestown last time.
6.40 M.D. O'Shea & Sons Mares Maiden Hurdle 2¾m

Timeform Top Rated:
126p 10. CEREALICE Alan Fleming Denis O'Regan
124 16. OPEN TO THE WORLD C. Roche J. S. McGarvey
120 18. UNE LAVANDIERE Noel Meade Sean Flanagan

Analyst's Verdict:
Cerealice showed promise in bumpers and a juvenile hurdle in France in 2015/16 and might be worth siding with to make light of an absence on her first run for new handler Alan Fleming. Une Lavandiere has reached the frame on her last 3 starts and is likely to be in the shake-up along with last month's Limerick runner-up Open To The World.
7.10 McSweeney Arms Hotel An Riocht Chase (Grade 3) 2½m120y

Timeform Top Rated:
176 4. ROCK THE WORLD Mrs J. Harrington M. P. Walsh
175 6. WOODLAND OPERA Mrs J. Harrington Robbie Power
170 1. BALLYCASEY W. P. Mullins R. Walsh

Analyst's Verdict:
Rock The World arrives in the form of his life, successful in the Grand Annual at Cheltenham prior to a fine fourth at Punchestown last month. He gets the nod to resume winning ways here, with Woodland Opera and Ballycasey others to consider.
7.40 Finbarr Slattery Memorial Killarney National Handicap Chase 3¼m

Timeform Top Rated:
155+ 11. AUVERGNAT Enda Bolger M. P. Walsh
152? 14. CASSELLS ROCK A. J. Martin Philip Enright
151 13. STONEHALL JACK D. E. Fitzgerald D. E. Splaine

Analyst's Verdict:
Auvergnat could prove well treated having been resurgent in Cross Country events for his new stable, and he gets the vote to confirm as much dropping back in trip. Whatareudoingtome and Stonehall Jack may well emerge as the chief dangers.
8.10 Dan Linehan's Bar And B & B Hunters Chase 2¾m100y

Timeform Top Rated:
144 8. MINELLA FOR VALUE Declan Queally Mr D. L. Queally (3)
132+ 3. SIZING SOLUTION J. T. R. Dreaper Mr J. J. Codd
127 9. STRIDEOUT EURO Ms Michelle Duggan Mr E. P. O'Brien (7)

Analyst's Verdict:
Far from disgraced when third at Punchestown last month, Minella For Value should prove a tough nut to crack back in calmer waters here. Sizing Solution improved when scoring at Cork and rates the main danger ahead of Strideout Euro and likely improver Danboru.
8.40 Killarney Racegoers Club (Ladies Pro/Am) I.N.H. Flat 2m1f

Timeform Top Rated:
105+ 7. STORM RACER Henry de Bromhead Ms L. O'Neill (5)
103 10. DECISION TIME John E. Kiely Ms K. Walsh
93p 9. SUNCROFT Alan Fleming Miss B. Frost (7)

Analyst's Verdict:
Having shaped well on debut at Leopardstown, Suncroft gets the nod. Storm Racer made an encouraging start to his career when runner-up here last summer and is next best. Decision Time and Copper West are each-way players, while newcomer Monstrosity needs a market check.
