How’s the going?

There’s a few showers in the Tipperary region, but all told it has been a cold and dry few days in Munster and the racetrack is described as being “Good” all round. This presents a good opportunity for remaining summer jumpers to have their ideal conditions. Equally, the ground will be safe and fine for any versatile types making their seasonal returns.

The Big Trend

75% of Willie Mullins trained horses are running to form and the master at Clusutton has sent out four winners from six Tipperary runners so far this season. He sends just two runners here on Tuesday:

Leg 2 - 2:05 Robinnia

Leg 5 - 3:50 Unexcepted

Stable jockey Paul Townend has ridden 3 wins from 4 rides at the track for a 75% strike rate so far this term. He rides Robinnia for his boss in Leg 2, along with an interesting ride aboard Top Line Tommy for Edward O’Grady in Leg 3 at 2:40pm.

HELLO PILGRIM (Leg 4, 3:15pm) runs for Colin Bowe and looks to be an improving horse in a fairly average looking handicap hurdle. The seven-year-old mare ran very well in 2nd at Roscommon last time out, recording a career best effort on form ratings. The handicapper has only nudged her up 3lb to a mark of 113, which looks very workable if she can continue this upward curve.

She’s going the right way at the right time and should catch most of these out for talent and a touch of quality today.

Outsider to Consider

CLUAN DARA (Leg 6, 4:25pm) run for trainer John Ryan with interesting conditional jockey Tommy Brett doing the steering. This 8yo runs from a mark of 87 today, which is workable on the best of his recent runs in defeat. He does find it hard to win, but could easily creep into the frame here.

His fourth at Killarney two starts back was a decent effort he’s 2lb lower here. Brett is yet to get off the mark under rules, but has caught the eye as potentially great value for his claim in the months to come. Cluan Dara will hopefully go under the radar in the market and can help bring home the bacon if we make it through the first five legs.

Torpedo Leg

Leg 2 of the pool at 2:05pm sees eight interesting novice hurdlers head to post, but what makes it tricky is their varying profiles. From unexposed types to more established hurdlers, we even have the talented chaser Fitzhenry in the field to further muddy the waters. All told, it might pay to have two types of horse on side to be sure of a top three finish between them in this quality but tough little heat.

THE LITTLE YANK stays really well but does have the pace and form for this drop back to two miles. The well bred 5yo should go well under Bryan Cooper. Also, Peter Fahey’s once-raced former point winner VISIONARIAN is of definite interest on the back of a stylish debut win at Gowran earlier this month.
