Timeform bring you three bets from Clonmel on Tuesday.

"That form has been given a boost since, with the winner going on to place in French Grade 3 events, and A Toi Phil looks yet another decent prospect for Willie Mullins."

Clonmel 13:50 - Indian Fairy

Indian Fairy is rated over 20 lbs higher over fences, and if she is able to transfer her ability in that sphere to these smaller obstacles, she should be tough to beat here, under her regular 7-lb claimer. The biggest danger to the selection could be River Clare, if that one is ready to go after a long break.

Clonmel 14:20 - A Toi Phil

A Toi Phil sets the standard here on his second in a listed newcomers race at Auteuil for his former connections. That form has been given a boost since, with the winner going on to place in French Grade 3 events, and A Toi Phil looks yet another decent prospect for Willie Mullins. Sizing Alberta remains open to improvement after just one start over hurdles himself, and is the obvious danger to the selection.

Clonmel 14:50 - Shannak

This looks wide-open on paper, but it could be worth chancing the unexposed Shannak, who took a significant leap forward on his first start for Anthony Mullins last time when fourth at Gowran Park, and is open to obvious improvement on just his second career start in handicaps. The 12-year-old Jacks Island remains fairly treated on pieces of his form, and could run into a place.
