Timeform pick out their three best bets from Leopardstown on Saturday...

"The son of Australia is clearly number one on jockey bookings for his powerful yard - one that often targets this race with a potential Derby candidate..."

Timeform on Broome

IRIDESSA - 14:45 Leopardstown

IRIDESSA is the one to beat under a 3 lb penalty for her Fillies' Mile success, with none of her rivals having form close to that standard. Lady Kaya is second best on juvenile form and can duly give the selection most to do, while Zagitova is probably best of the remainder, given that Ryan Moore rides her ahead of the other Ballydoyle fillies.

BROOME - 15:50 Leopardstown

BROOME sets the standard here having only just been denied in a Group 1 at Longchamp in October. The son of Australia is clearly number one on jockey bookings for his powerful yard - one that often targets this race with a potential Derby candidate - and he looks sure to do better now going beyond a mile for the first time. Of the remainder, it's interesting that Tankerville is pitched in at this level, while Guaranteed represents a yard in sensational form and should also be involved at the finish.

THIRD WORLD - 16:25 Leopardstown

THIRD WORLD represents a yard that can do little wrong at the moment (six winners from last 10 runners), and it would be no surprise to see him take a big step forward from his Naas reppearance, with the step up to this trip likely to be in his favour. Cuban Hope is thriving at present and also commands respect, for all that this demands more, while Eminence is another who should improve at this trip.
