Timeform provide the three best bets at Leopardstown on Saturday...

"The yard know the family well, and that form more or less sets the standard here..."

Timeform on McCabe

Celestial Object - 13:20 Leopardstown

Celestial Object wasn't beaten that far in a listed event last time, improving from her debut, and sets a decent standard for a race like this. She gets the nod, although strong market support for the very well-bred Aidan O'Brien newcomers Evening Primrose and/or Lovelier would put a slightly different slant on things. Ediyva is another newcomer who looks the part on paper.

McCabe - 13:55 Leopardstown

McCabe split a pair with experience when an excellent second at Gowran on debut and should improve plenty. The yard know the family well, and that form more or less sets the standard here, and with the yard in top form, he is narrowly preferred to San Pedro, who is another well-bred sort that has more to come. Hachert is an interesting one on paper but the ground is likely to make it tough for newcomers.

Pincheck - 15:05 Leopardstown

By no means the strongest of listed events and Pincheck looks to have been found a good opportunity to open his account for the season. Laughifuwant arrives in form and appeals as the one to give Jessica Harrington's smart gelding most to do. Psychedelic Funk rates a solid place prospect.
