There’s tasty meeting in store on Tuesday at Clonmel and we’ve drafted in PPTV tipster James Shortt – a man who knows the score when it comes to Irish racing – for his super selections from the card.
It’s been an excellent week for the Robcour team and they can secure the opening 2m maiden hurdle with MAGIC DAZE under Rachael Blackmore. The Henry de Bromhead-trained runner drops down to the minimum trip following her third-place finish behind Gaillard Du Mesnil at Leopardstown.
The former Curraghmore point-to-point winner raced forward early before leading in Foxrock and can dominate from the front today. The opposition doesn’t look the strongest and this is a golden opportunity for the daughter of Doyen to break her maiden, with Union Rock the horse to watch on debut for Mouse Morris.
The Cullentra House team will still be smiling following Envoi Allen’s latest victory at Punchestown on Sunday and they can send out another winner in this 2m maiden hurdle. DUNDOYNE drops in trip for his second rules start with the son of Yeats a recruit from the point-to-point field, which included a victory at Tattersalls Farms when previously trained by Sean Doyle.
The six-year-old is bound to improve from his run at Navan before Christmas having finished second to Bob Olinger, who took the Grade 1 Lawlor’s at Naas last week. Elsewhere, Willie Mullins runs Capodanno who was disappointing when turned over as favourite here in early December. Quirt Evans could reach the frame for David O’Brien having ran well against Minella Escape at Tramore.

TUCANAE has shown enough this season to gain compensation for her slip at Limerick to win the feature Munster rated novice hurdle for Paul Nolan. Hopefully, the mare is none the worse for her opening furlong slip under Oakley Brown over Christmas having been sent off favourite for that handicap hurdle.
She won a bumper at Limerick the previous Christmas and was placed second at both Punchestown and Galway over hurdles before winning her maiden at Fairyhouse in November. Bryan Cooper returns to the saddle and she’s clearly progressive to challenge here, with Gevrey and Broomfields Jeremey is two of her main rivals.
The rescheduled maiden hunters chase ends the card at Clonmel on Tuesday with Super Citizen, Templebredin and Shuil Luas the most likely leading contenders. SUPER CITIZEN can hopefully get the job done having shown enough in recent months for the excellent team of Eugene and Maxine O’Sullivan.
The seven-year-old got the better of Shuil Luas when winning at Ballindenisk in November before trying to give Staker Wallance a race when second to Enda Bolger’s runner at Limerick at Christmas. Templebredin for Sam Curling looks the main danger having been so consistent for connections last year, which included wins at Aghabullogue, Ballyvodock, Portrush and more recently in Boulta.
