Timeform pick out three bets from Leopardstown on Saturday.
"He'll also love the yielding ground as his form figures on going softer than good read 6111104."
Nutcracker Suite - Leopardstown 14:30
The Ballydoyle pair Nutcracker Suite and Elizabeth Browning make their handicap debuts in this nursery and are arguably the most interesting runners, with the very well-bred Nutcracker Suite (closely related to smart sprinter Beauty Bright) just getting the vote. Nutcracker Suite has got no closer than eighth in her three starts so far, but the second of them did come in a Group 3 at the Curragh (just about her best effort), and she could be favourably treated off an ITC mark of 79 here. She wears a tongue tie for the first time.
Magic Circle - Leopardstown 16:15
British raider Magic Circle shaped well from too far back in the Old Borough Cup at Haydock and can show he's still a stayer on the up in this 15-furlong handicap. Ralph Beckett's charge won four times last year, and added another handicap success to his CV at York in July, but he's actually still relatively lightly raced after 12 starts. He'll also love the yielding ground as his form figures on going softer than good read 6111104. Having Pat Smullen in the saddle is obviously another positive.
Breenainthemycra - Leopardstown 16:50
Breenainthemycra was most progressive last year, winning three handicaps and finishing in the frame in another three, and he shaped as if retaining all his ability when third, on debut for the Ellmarie Holden yard, at the Curragh earlier this month. With that run under his belt he is taken to return to winning ways under promising apprentice Oisin Orr.
