Timeform pick out three bets from Clonmel on Thursday evening.


Ligeti - Clonmel 18:20

Ligeti improved again when filling the runner-up spot for the third start in succession at Dundalk last month, travellong smoothly into contention as the field entered the final two furlongs and simply finding the game winner too strong on the day. He would appear to hold sound claims if reproducing that level of form here and is fancied to resume winning ways with a defeat of Elm Grove.

Nulife - Clonmel 18:50

Nulife was well backed and got back on the up in blinkers for the first time at Limerick last month, not suited by being held up in a slowly-run race, but deserving extra credit for finishing as close as he did, nearest at the finish. He has the hood added today, and he ought to go close off the same mark. Easy Boy has been in good form on the all-weather and is also of interest under Pat Smullen, while Mystery Gal finished in front of the selection last time and is another to consider.

Sea's Aria - Clonmel 19:50

Sea's Aria shaped better than the bare result when fifth at Dundalk two weeks ago, enduring a troubled passage as the field entered the final furlong and keeping on well in the circumstances to be beaten just four lengths. She can race from the same mark here and looks the one to beat if building on the promise of that latest effort, with Dixie Highway feared most of the remainder.
