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

"He has joined an up-and-coming yard that excel with new recruits..."

Timeform on T For Tango

T For Tango - 17:55 Leopardstown

T For Tango shaped encouragingly on his first start for this yard when a close sixth in a big-field handicap at the Curragh last time, and he might have finished closer still had he been asked for his effort sooner, closing all the way to the line. He has joined an up-and-coming yard that excel with new recruits, and he is a strong fancy from the same mark. Betsey Trotter was a good second on handicap debut here and is feared most.

Sirjack Thomas - 19:35 Leopardstown

Sirjack Thomas produced a useful effort when striking at the second time of asking for his current stable at Sligo in June. That was a career best, and the manor of that success suggests he should have even more to offer. A case can be made for all of the others, too, with Mr Ormsby and Ice Cold In Alex perhaps the pair to give him most to do.

Eziyra - 20:05 Leoardstown

Little between the quartet, and though Eziyra lacks a run, she represents a top yard and the level of form she achieved when landing a brace of Group 3 contests to end 2017 marks her out as the one to beat on these terms. Yucatan and Stellar Mass will certianly give her plenty to think about, though.
