Timeform pick out their three best bets from Clonmel on Monday...

"He is fancied to capitalise on a lower hurdles mark now switched back to this sphere..."

Timeform on Pack Your Bags

Myth Buster - 13:45 Clonmel

Myth Buster can be forgiven his latest effort over three miles at Fairyhouse, feeling no benefit of the step up in trip in a steadily-run race, and the strength of his previous form is enough to think he can edge out Edelpour in a race that the pair are expected to dominate unless the likes of Retribution and/or State of Cognac can find marked improvement from their promising hurdling debuts.

Pack Your Bags - 15:25 Clonmel

Pack Your Bags has been in top form over fences of late, supplementing his Down Royal victory dropped in trip returned to this venue two weeks ago, defying a 10 lb rise without much fuss. He is fancied to capitalise on a lower hurdles mark now switched back to this sphere over a trip that should pose no problems. Time Is Time and Jennys Grey are others fancied to get involved.

Cotton End - 17:05 Clonmel

Cotton End found a Grade 3 event too much when making her hurdling debut at Fairyhouse last month, no threat from three out, but she had shown promise in this sphere beforehand, and that form just about sets the standard in this line-up. Ballyshannon Rose and Mystical Mover are others to consider.
