Jockey Billy Lee enjoyed a hat-trick at Cork on Sunday and can continue his run of good form in Sligo this evening.

Lee is on the Tim Doyle-trained pair of Vasoni, runner up at Limerick on Saturday, and Killourney Empress today and both should relish the forecast soft ground.

Front-running tactics appeared to suit Bainne at Cork on Sunday and Charlie Swan’s runner can defy a 5lb penalty in the fillies handicap, while Thrilled To Bits was only 10 lengths behind the big Royal Ascot hope Sandiva in a Listed race at Naas last time and should relish the drop in class for the opener.
