Timeform bring you three tips from Clonmel on Thursday.

"He should be sharper for that run and can see off the 19-race maiden Fort Carson..."

Victory Mill - Clonmel 13:30

Victory Mill made a fine start to his career when taking advantage of a final-flight fall by Au Quart du Tour at Fairyhouse in December, and built on that when finishing second (giving 3 lb) to previous winner Last Goodbye at Navan the following month. He could yet have more to offer, and is preferred to Urano (better known as a chaser) who is respected despite giving weight away all round. Don't Tell No One's Grade 3 third at this track last time is strong form and he also rates a big danger to the selection.

Altiepix - Clonmel 15:45

Altiepix has taken well to chasing, and matched the best of his hurdling form when winning a maiden at Fairyhouse in January. He was better than the beaten distance suggested when fourth on his handicap debut next time at Down Royal, having made made a bad blunder at the last, and he remains of interest from just 1 lb higher in the weights, now dropped in trip with first-time blinkers enlisted. King Blue was in the process of running a big race when falling three out when last seen, and could be the selection's biggest danger.

Accordion Twilight - Clonmel 16:20

Accordion Twilight indicated that he should be capable of defying this sort of mark, based on the way he shaped on his reappearance here earlier this month. He will be sharper for that run - travelled well in the main and only tired late on - today, and should be able to see off the 19-race maiden Fort Carson, in what is a modest affair.
