Timeform head to a decent card at Leopardstown for their three best bets on Thursday...
"Le Cheile was a very good second over seven furlong at Dundalk 12 days ago and he’ll be suited by the return to a mile..."
We kick off proceedings with a handicap over a mile (17:55) and Le Cheile looks the one to keep on side. He was a very good second over seven furlong at Dundalk 12 days ago and given he'll be suited by the return to a mile and looks well-handicapped on the pick of his form, he looks to have an excellent chance in this contest.
It's the Group 3 Silver Flash Stakes over seven furlongs (18:25) under consideration next and Marsali should be able to take the step up in class in her stride. She overcame a bad draw to win on debut at Fairyhouse and with significant improvement virtually a given, she can make it two from two and take this on her way to bigger and better things.
Our final bet of the evening comes in a ten-furlong handicap (19:30) and a chance is taken on Notable Graduate on his return to action. He could be well handicapped and although this is his first start for ten months, he remains potentially well-treated in a contest where some have struggled to get their head in front in the past and can capitalise.
