Timeform pick out three bets from Clonmel on Tuesday.

"She seems sure to improve for that experience, and this extra two furlongs will be in her favour..."

Tell Me Annie - 13:50 Clonmel

Tell Me Annie won a couple of points in early-2017, and is a latecomer to racing under Rules, but she showed enough to suggest she is up to winning races in this sphere when finishing third in a maiden at Punchestown last month. She seems sure to improve for that experience, and this extra two furlongs will be in her favour. Bumper/Flat winner Decision Time and Countess Cathleen are a couple of others to consider.

Burren Life - 14:50 Clonmel

Burren Life was disappointing dropped to two and a half miles on his handicap debut at Navan last month, but, based on his third-placed finish in a Grade 2 at Limerick in December, he sets a pretty good standard here. That was over three miles, so the step back up in trip now will play to his strengths, and this doesn't look the strongest Grade 3. Stable-companion Monkshood may be the principal danger.

Spare Brakes - 16:30 Clonmel

Admiteddly, Spare Brakes has finished held in a trio of maiden chases at up to two miles, but rates the type to do better now handicapping and could be worth chancing against the standard-setter All The Chimneys. An opening mark of 99 isn't necessarily a gift, but he hails from a shrewd yard, and he is fairly prominent in the betting this morning. Mindsmadeup is another who could take a big jump forward now making his chasing debut.
