Leopardstown hosts a highly informative card with a pair of juvenile contests which will likely have ramifications on next season's Guineas markets.

The Group 3 Tyros Stakes (7.30) allows us the opportunity to examine a handful of promising colts and Aidan O'Brien, who has saddled the last five winners, relies on maiden scorers Armory and Toronto.

Fillies take centre stage 35 minutes earlier in the Group 3 7f Silver Flash Stakes (6.55), where Group 2 second Precious Moments clashes with once-raced maiden winners One Last Look and Windracer. 

There are six other meetings to indulge in, with Sandown, Yarmouth, Newbury, Doncaster, Southwell and Limerick the venues of choice with temperatures forecast to soar to an all-time high of 39C in southern and eastern England this afternoon.
