Timeform pick out three bets from Clonmel on Thursday evening.


Morgan - Clonmel 18:00

Morgan ran respectably when fourth to a useful sort at Punchestown last time and there doesn't appear to be anything of that calibre in opposition here. Indeed, the form of his earlier second at Limerick leaves Morgan some 10 lb clear on Timeform ratings and Gordon Elliott's charge looks the one to beat if arriving in the same mood. Ornua was a dominant winner at Down Royal 17 days ago and can give the selection most to do.

Fiesole - Clonmel 18:30

Fiesole had some fair form to his name on the Flat and belatedly took advantage of a lenient mark in this sphere when winning a competitive heat at Down Royal 17 days ago. He has a 7 lb hike in the weights to contend with here, but could still have more to offer after just nine starts over hurdles and is fancied to follow up for the Eoin Doyle yard. Stormey ran well when second at Ballinrobe last time and looks the main danger.

Bishopslough - Clonmel 19:35

Bishopslough was below-par when down the field on his most recent outing at Ballinrobe in September, but has been given plenty of time to recover from those exertions and is beginning to look potentially very well-treated on pieces of old form. He has gone well fresh in the past and would appear to hold sound claims on his return to action, with War of The Penny feared most on the back of a good second at Tipperary last time.
