The going at Clonmel is now soft on both the hurdle and chase courses following 11mm of rain since declaration time.

The forecast is for a dry day, with the action on a seven-race card getting underway at 12.25.

Clondaw Warrior is the star attraction as the dual-purpose gelding faces six rivals in the Jim Strang & Sons Kilsheelan (Peugeot) Hurdle.

The Galway Hurdle hero steps up to three miles, with Taglietelle and Val De Ferbet among the opposition.

Elsewhere on the card, Willie Mullins introduces Supreme Novices' Hurdle fancy Crack Mome in the opening Clonmel Maiden Hurdle.
