Timeform bring you three tips from Leopardstown on Sunday...

"He's likely to be up with the pace, and should prove hard to peg back."

Potters Point - 14:00 Leopardstown

A bumper winner at Punchestown on his final start last season, Potters Point tired late on when third on his hurdling debut at Navan in November, but showed plenty of promise. He's likely to be up with the pace, and should prove hard to peg back. Perennial runner-up Space Cadet is respected, along with Stowaway Shark who would have been closer at Down Royal earlier this month but for fluffing his lines at the last.

Sheamus - 15:00 Leopardstown

Plenty of horses returning from long breaks here, but the most interesting is Sheamus who completed a four-timer (two bumpers, two hurdles) when last seen at Fairyhouse back in November 2014. His stable is in good form, too. Barry Geraghty has won two of the last four renewals of this race and his mount Great Field is respected on his debut for Willie Mullins, along with stablemate So Young who has been off the track for over 1000 days.

Ballyadam Approach - 16:00 Leopardstown

Terence O'Brien won this race last year and Ballyadam Approach can give his trainer a repeat win. Ballyadam Approach shaped better than the bare result over hurdles last time out and is better judged on his career-best win at Punchestown in April. Dressedtothenines should strip fitter for his run at Navan in December and is respected, along with Bearly Legal who won nicely at the course last month.
