Today's Horse Racing Tips: Bolger has a well handicapped Tipperary runner to look out for

Jockey Mark Walsh rides Stamp Your Feet on Sunday

Top Man was an easy winner for Alan Dudman yesterday, and his final instalment of the week is for Tipperary on Sunday with three bets....

"Reverting back to hurdles today, it looks as though he has been let in lightly from a mark of 105 considering he was rated 30lb higher in the UK in 2018."

Back Stamp Your Feet @ 4.77/2 in the 14:38 at Tipperary

Bolger runner looks well treated for switch to hurdles

14:38 Tipperary - Back Stamp Your Feet @ 4.77/2

Enda Bolger's Stamp Your Feet looks like one of the best handicapped horses on the card at Tipperary, and he can score at a price of 4.77/2.

He joined Bolger in the summer from Tom George and immediately made the switch pay dividends with a win over fences at Roscommon in July. He was subsequently beaten at Kilbeggan, but he never really looked happy there, so it could have been the turnaround.

Reverting back to hurdles today, it looks as though he has been let in lightly from a mark of 105 considering he was rated 30lb higher in the UK in 2018.

Stamp Your Feet is adaptable in terms of going with form on both good and soft and the step up in distance to 3m shouldn't be too much of an issue.

Sizing can serve it up to favourite Galvin

15:38 Tipperary - Back Sizing Pottsie @ 4.216/5

One of the feature races on the Tipp' card for Sunday is the Grade 3 Like A Butterfly Novice Chase, and we are set for an early season peach with two quality horses going head-to-head with Galvin taking on Sizing Pottsie.

Galvin is a horse with plenty of natural ability but he can make one or two sloppy mistakes at crucial times. His jumping wasn't 100% accurate when he was beaten at the Cheltenham Festival, and since then he has rattled off back-to-back victories at Killarney. However, they were soft races in small fields and he didn't beat much. Again, one or two of the jumping issues crept in.

His price is a little too short at 2.3611/8.

Jessie Harrington's Sizing Pottsie looks massively overpriced here at 4.216/5 and on ratings, he is the best in this field.

This young chaser has already got a Grade 3 win next to his name as he bolted up in the Flyingbolt at Navan with a super round of jumping, and if he jumps as well here, he can put pressure on Galvin as he likes to race to the front.

His fall at Thurles when last seen is an obvious negative, but the price compensates for that. The forecast rain for Sunday is also a plus.

Fame can bring some joy in the closing bumper

16:43 Tipperary - Back Fame And Joy @ 10.09/1

The concluding bumper has a very open feel to it in terms of the betting with it shaping up like a "4/1 the field" race, but Fame And Joy showed a little bit on her debut at Punchestown to suggest there's ability there.

She was green when beaten 18 lengths, and despite being a bit short of room in the closing stages, she tried to run on.

Related to the smart Commander Of Fleet, she should improve plenty for that experience and she's bred to stay well out of Fame And Glory. She looks overpriced at 10.09/1.
