Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Thursday October 29
Timeform bring you three bets from Clonmel on Thursday.
"The former is slightly preferred after a break given how well the races he won have subsequently worked out."
Clonmel 13:25 - Ten Times Better
Ten Times Better finally gained reward for some good efforts in bumpers here earlier in the month and is taken to strike at the first time of asking over hurdles under Ruby Walsh. Those with previous hurdling experience don't set the bar that high and it wouldn't be a big surprise if the main threat emerged from the Michael Winters-trained point winners Model Cloud and Native Lass.
Clonmel 14:25 - Damut
Both Damut and Eric The Third arrive in pursuit of a hat-trick so are very likely the pair to focus on. The former is slightly preferred after a break given how well the races he won have subsequently worked out.
Clonmel 14:55 - New Kid In Town
New Kid In Town has failed to live up to expectations on soft ground in handicaps on last 2 starts but is worth another chance back on better going. Kennedys Mor and Arthropod head the dangers.
