Henry de Bromhead can strike with Visioman

Timeform pick out three bets from Tipperary on Monday...

"...he has already shown himself to be a better chaser than hurdler..."

Timeform on Visioman

Rebel Og - 14:35 Tipperary

Rebel Og wasn't seen to best effect at Listowel last time when she was unsuited by a steady gallop over 2m, but she still ran with promise to finish fourth in a decent race. She showed obvious talent in bumpers last season and, granted this stiffer test, can start to fulfil her potential over hurdles. Flicker Flame showed fairly useful form on the Flat and could be the biggest danger.

Visioman - 16:05 Tipperary

Henry de Bromhead has won this novice chase twice in the last three years and looks to have a strong chance of winning it again with Visioman. Like so many from the De Bromhead yard, Visioman has impressed with his jumping over fences and has already shown himself to be a better chaser than hurdler. He made the most of a good opportunity last time, winning without fuss, and remains open to improvement.

Shanroe Al C - 16:35 Tipperary

Shanroe Al C progressed rapidly to win three handicap hurdles in a row in the spring and looks very well treated on his return to chasing. His last hurdles victory was achieved off a mark of 106, so a rating of 87 over fences clearly underplays his ability. He has flopped twice over fences but is clearly a different proposition to when last sent chasing.
