Timeform pick out three bets from Clonmel on Thursday.
Theatre Wine - Clonmel 14:15
Theatre Wine provided plenty to work on when second on her hurdling debut at Roscommon 10 days ago, staying on strongly to get within a short-head of the pillar-to-post winner and pulling 27 lengths clear of the third in the process. That form leaves those with previous experience some 16 lb to find on Timeform ratings and Theatre Wine is expected to have no problem opening her account in this discipline here. Rosshaven Lady is a consistent sort and can give the selection most to do.
Rendezvous Peak - Clonmel 15:50
Rendezvous Peak shaped well when third on his most recent outing at Downpatrick, forced to deliver his challenge from further back than ideal and ultimately doing extremely well to finish within a head of the better-placed winner. He has been given plenty of time to recover from those exertions and, with Ruby Walsh taking over in the saddle here, Rendeezvous Peak is expected to see off the attentions of the thriving Blackthorn Prince and can open his account for the Gordon Elliott yard.
Lip Service - Clonmel 16:55
Lip Service had some fair form to his name over hurdles and didn't need to improve when making a successful chasing debut at Tramore three weeks ago. He looked most assured in the jumping department that day and appeared to be in control when his chief rival departed at the final fence. He is entitled to improve with that initial experience under his belt and Lip Service is taken to maintain his unbeaten record over the larger obstacles, with Old Castletown feared most of the remainder.
