Timeform on Leprechaun

Timeform bring you the three best bets from Fairview on Monday...

#3 Var's Boy - Fairview R7 (14:05)

Var's Boy confirmed his recent progress when producing a career best to get off the mark for the season at this course earlier in the month. A similar performance should see him difficult to hold out. God Of Thunder arrives here on the back of a maiden win and will likely offer the most opposition, while Frankie Two Shoes should also give his running.

#9 Exaltation - Fairview R8 (14:45)

Exaltation hasn't won for thirteen runs, but his form is not as bad as it may seem. His sixth at this course last month now looks a very good effort, with a couple of good performers emerging from that race, and he was undoubtedly not seen to best effect from 1 lb out of the weights here last time. This step up in trip may hold the key to him, and he looks weighted to go well. Chainsaw has been knocking on the door of late and could be the main threat, while Thomas Tucker could be the one to fill the places.

#1 Leprechaun - Fairview R9 (15:15)

A dual winner at this course back in March, including once over this trip, Leprechaun looked back to his best when third here, in a much better race than this, earlier this month. That is the best piece of form on offer and Leprechaun should be able to capitalise on this return to calmer waters and regain the winning thread. Teofilia has hit the frame in each of her last two outings and should be thereabouts again, while Hidden Influence also holds place claims.
