Timeform pick out three bets from Leopardstown on Wednesday.


Vroum Vroum Mag - Leopardstown 13:50

Vroum Vroum Mag lost her unbeaten record for Willie Mullins when second in the Hatton's Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse earlier this month, but there was no disgrace in going down to a similarly smart rival and that still represented the best effort of her career to date. That form leaves her 8 lb clear of stablemate Shaneshill on Timeform ratings here and Vroum Vroum Mag is fancied to regain the winning thread now stepped back up to three miles in this Grade 1 prize.

Whats The Plot - Leopardstown 14:25

Whats The Plot produced his best effort over hurdles to date when sixth on his most recent outing at Thurles, keeping on well in the closing stages and doing so for nothing like maximum pressure. He makes his handicap debut from what looks a potentially lenient mark here and is taken to open his account over hurdles at the fifth time of asking. Bull Ride has improved with each and every start to date and can give the selection most to do for his powerful connections.

Djakadam - Leopardstown 15:00

Djakadam is a top-class staying chaser on his day and made the perfect start to this campaign when winning the John Durkan at Punchestown 17 days ago. He is entitled to improve with that initial outing under his belt and - 8 lb clear of his nearest rival on Timeform ratings here - Djakadam is expected to see off the attentions of Valseur Lido and can set himself up for another tilt at the Cheltenham Gold Cup in which he has been second for the last two years.
