Ruby Walsh tips, Leopardstown Saturday 

1.45pm – Kitty Rose did well to beat Tannola on debut and she’s the one for me.

2.15pm – Diego Velazquez was impressive on debut and can go forward from a decent draw.

2.45pm – Tahiyra did well to win the Irish 1,000 Guineas and a messy Coronation Stakes at Royal Ascot. The one to beat.

3.20pm – Onesto has Frankie Dettori on board and is a great each-way bet.

3.55pm – Lord Massusus will be fine on the quick ground and he’s the each-way value in the race.

4.30pm – Adelaide River has very solid form and is the most likely winner.

5.05pm – Nusret was good at The Curragh and he’ll be a better Flat horse than he was over hurdles.

5.40pm – Kayhana didn’t quite get home last time over a mile so this drop in trip to 7f will help. An each-way chance.

Mick Fitzgerald tips, Leopardstown Saturday 

3.55pm – Buckaroo has some strong form in the book and is consistent. The lightly-raced course and distance winner can go close for Joseph O’Brien.

Rory Delargy tips, Leopardstown Saturday 

1.45pm – Kitty Rose impressed on debut and her trainer has been firing in winners all season.

2.15pm – Deepone (each-way) was done for tactical speed last time but a proper test over a mile on quick ground will suit.

2.45pm – It’s impossible to oppose Tahiyra. Her win at Ascot was on quick ground, so she should be fine today.

3.20pm – King Of Steel will be suited by the 1m 2f trip. I’m very keen on him.

3.55pm – Buckaroo could have the class to overcome time off the track and a shorter-than-ideal trip.

4.30pm – Al Aasy has strung two solid wins together and there should be a decent pace set for him.

5.05pm – Nusret has good form on good ground and very much caught the eye with his last win, for which he’s only up 2lbs.

5.40pm – Broadhurst was unlucky not to win last time. He runs off the same mark again and first-time cheekpieces will help.

Matt Chapman tips, Leopardstown Saturday 

2.45pm – Dermot Weld runs his two former Irish 1,000 Guineas winners in Tahiyra and Homeless Songs but it’s Meditate (each-way)  I’m giving another chance to for Aidan O’Brien and Ryan Moore.

3.20pm  –  I won’t be giving up on defending champion Luxembourg.
