Timeform pick out three bets from Tipperary on Tuesday evening.

"His fourth at Leopardstown last time is working out fairly well, with the three that finished ahead of him all running well since..."

Reddot Express - 18:20 Tipperary

Reddot Express has yet to fire this season in three starts in handicaps, but he has been given a chance by the handicapper as a result, and he looks interesting now dropped in grade in a first-time hood and with his yard in good form. On his best form - which was his third in a Navan maiden in September last season - he is well treated from this sort of mark, and he is preferred to the likes of My Painter and Matriarch, who have both had many more chances to get off the mark.


Lord Justice - 18:50 Tipperary

Lord Justice has been running consistently well this season, finding the frame on four of his five starts, and he looks to have been found a good opportunity to deservedly get off the mark here. His fourth at Leopardstown last time is working out fairly well, with the three that finished ahead of him all running well since, and with this bigger test of stamina expected to suit him based on the way he shaped there, he can justify favouritsm. Universal Focus ran well enough last time and could be the one to follow him home.


Emma Beag - 19:50 Tipperary

Emma Beag won by some 31 lengths last time at Sligo - albeit in a race which rather fell apart - and she seems to have been handed a workable opening handicap mark based on that dominant display here. She could prove herself to be well ahead of this mark, and is preferred to Knockanarrigan, who was better than the result at Galway last time after making his effort earlier than ideal.
