Timeform pick out three bets from Clonmel on Tuesday.

"...still lightly raced for a seven-year-old, he looks the one to side with here..."

Back Bar - 15:15 Clonmel

Back Bar has shown enough over hurdles to suggest he is up to winning races in this sphere and looks to have been presented a good opportunity here. Both Gordon Elliott and Day Russell could hardly be in better form at present, and Back Bar should have too much for last-time-out winner Zipporah.

Minella Fair - 15:50 Clonmel

Minella Fair suffered an injury when disappointing at Limerick in December, but took a step back in the right direction when third in a novice hurdle at Navan last time, outpaced in the straight but staying on all the way to the line. This slightly longer trip will be in his favour now and, still lightly raced for a seven-year-old, he looks the one to side with here. Force of Forces and High Sparrow both look promising types too and are feared most in what looks an interesting race.

Rock On Barney - 16:20 Clonmel

A very modest handicap, but Rock On Barney is at least in good heart, and that may count for plenty in a race like this. He has proved competitive off similar marks in the past and makes the most appeal. Mount Brandon will have his supporters, for all he is a long-standing maiden, while cheekpieces could spark Danse Away back to life.
