Timeform pick out their best three bets from Leopardstown on Wednesday evening...

"Her young rider once again takes the ride, making the prospect of carrying a 6 lb penalty a less daunting one, and she is fancied to go in again."

Timeform on Stormy Tale

Stormy Tale - Leopardstown 19:40

This looks a good three-year-old handicap, and the in-form Stormy Tale is fancied to continue her fine run, which has seen her win two of her last three starts. Her young rider once again takes the ride, making the prospect of carrying a 6 lb penalty a less daunting one, and she is fancied to go in again. Raphael and Chaparral Dream are both running well of late and are also strongly considered.

Bandua - 20:10 Leopardstown

Bandua was given a daunting assignment in the Irish Derby last time, and he ran about as well as you'd expect, finishing eighth. He had won his first two starts in good fashion prior to that, and returned to calmer waters, he is fancied to get back on track - with more to come from him yet. Cypress Creek, The King and Cimeara are a trio of others to consider.

Siempre Amigos - 20:45 Leopardstown

Siempre Amigos was disappointing on her most recent start over hurdles, but she had previously suggested her Flat mark is a workable one when third at Bellewstown and she could be worth chancing to bounce back. The in-form High Kicker and Eight Till Late are also high on the shortlist.
