Timeform pick out three bets from Clonmel on Thursday evening...

"...tonight could be his opportunity to gain the win his consistency deserves..."

Timeform on Cottonvale

Comehere Hi - Clonmel 18:30

Comehere Hi has dropped to the same mark as when recording his latest hurdles win in October 2015 and, fit from a couple of runs on the Flat, he could be worth backing to record an overdue success, with a promising conditional taking an extra 7 lb off his back. Limerick-winner Drakaina is respected on her return, while Hearts Are Trumps could do better now handicapping for top connections.

Giant Spirit - Clonmel 19:05

Giant Spirit and Last Minute Man look the pair to concentrate on here, with the former narrowly preferred on the back of his respectable second over two miles here last time. A repeat of that form would make him hard to beat, and Willie Mullins' charge could have even more to offer back on a sounder surface. Amschel, who shaped with promise when second on his hurdling bow at Kilbeggan, and Lord In Red look best of the rest.

Cottonvale - Clonmel 20:15

Cottonvale arrives here in top form having finished placed in four of his last six starts, including when third from this mark at Tipperary last week, and tonight could be his opportunity to gain the win his consistency deserves, with Barry Geraghty taking over in the saddle. Most of the others have something to prove, but Dundeeny Lad ran well when third at Thurles last time and looks an obvious danger.
