Timeform pick out three bets from Leopardstown's Dublin Racing Festival on Sunday...

"...and is hard to ignore from a handicapping perspective..."

Total Recall -14:25 Leopardstown

It's very hard to get away from the claims of Total Recall, who won the Ladbroke Trophy at Newbury off a 22 lb higher mark, and is hard to ignore from a handicapping perspective for the in-form Willie Mullins. A Great View and Flawless Escape, who is very much unexposed and could have been let in lightly on handicap debut, are feared most.

Invitation Only - 15:00 Leopardstown

This looks a cracking renewal. Invitation Only has made a brilliant start over fences, winning his last two start in good fashion, and he should have even more to offer. This will be his sternest test to date, but he hasn't done much wrong so far, and he looks an exciting prospect. Sutton Place wasn't spectacular at Fairyhouse last month but looks sure to progress in this sphere, and he could prove the biggest danger.

Our Duke - 15:35 Leopardstown

Our Duke can't have been right on his Down Royal return and is worth another chance as he'd looked set for the top this term when hacking up in the Irish National last spring. Outlander bounced straight back from a blip in the Betfair when third here over Christmas and should go well again, while Anibale Fly is well worth his place at this level after his Paddy Power win here last time.
