clonmel 10th May
Clonmel's mixed card on Thursday begins at 5.40 with the Clonmel Hospice Support Group Maiden, in which popular jumper Won In The Dark has his first outing on the level for almost three years.
Rebel Fitz has been mixing it with the very best staying novice hurdlers and has his maiden start on the Flat, while Jacksonslady, third to Alderwood in a Grade 2 at Fairyhouse when last seen, is also better known for her National Hunt exploits.
Emotional Dream has been campaigned solely on the Flat by Kevin Prendergast and, stepping up in distance following a couple of placed efforts, may be the one to beat.
The biggest prize on the card goes to the winner of the SEPAM Tipperary Perpetual Cup and 2010 winner Galianna is back for more.
She is fit from a stint over obstacles but, on official ratings in that sphere, she has something to find with the likes of Idarah, Mister Carter and Headford Flyer.
Gan Locht denied Daytime Dreamer at Dundalk and attempts to confirm her superiority in division one of the Clonmel Hospice Support Group Handicap, while third home Mutiska sets the standard in the second instalment.
The jumping action starts with the Clonmel Hospice Support Group Maiden Hurdle and Roman Flight tries his hand in this sphere on the back of a couple of promising Flat performances.
Tugboat showed little on his debut for Edward O'Grady but, with the run under his belt, could be the biggest threat on his hurdling bow.
His stable companion Crocus Bay boasts the best form in the Clonmel Hospice Support Group Flat Race but, as ever, Willie Mullins saddles an interesting newcomer in the shape of Mr Groocock.
Coldwinters returned from a layoff when springing a 20/1 surprise at Kilbeggan last week and won't be anything like that price in the Clonmel Hospice Support Group Handicap Hurdle.
