Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Thursday June 18

There is Group 3 action at Leopardstown later today
There is Group 3 action at Leopardstown later today

Leopardstown hosts some interesting action this evening and Timeform have picked out their three best bets...

"...he shades the vote in his bid to go one place better than he did in this race 12 months ago."

Hunt - 18:55 Leopardstown

Dundalk winner Hunt ran respectably, despite finding the drop down to 6f inadequate when a close-up third back on turf at Fairyhouse in May. He is likely to be suited by this much stiffer test and can prove too strong for last-time-out winners Lily's Rainbow and Cape Wolfe.

Shabra Emperor - 19:25 Leopardstown

Shabra Emperor failed to land the hat-rick at Cork on Sunday, though he still ran creditably, and looks the solid choice. Six of Hearts doesn't win often, but he is fairly handicapped and looks the likeliest danger.

Eastern Rules - 20:00 Leopardstown

Eastern Rules again acquitted himself with credit in Dubai earlier in the year, and with his recent Naas return spin under his belt, he shades the vote in his bid to go one place better than he did in this race 12 months ago. The returning Tested and Sovereign Debt rate the chief dangers amongst the remainder.
