A little ease in the ground at Thurles

Following 7mm of rain overnight the going at Thurles is now yielding, good to yielding in places.

Sunshine and showers are expected at the County Tipperary venue today where a seven race card is set to commence at 1.45.

A fortnight on from their Flat meeting, it's back to National Hunt fare at Ireland's original 'all weather' track.

The He'llberemembered Hurdle tops the bill at 3.55. In the small field extended two and three quarter miler Peregrine Run heads the betting, ahead of Gordon Elliott's pair, Elwood and Westland Row Chateau Conti and Supreme Vinnie are outsiders.

A win for Peter Fahey's Peregrine Run would be appropriate. Fahey's brother Paul trained He'llberemembered - winner of the corresponding event in 2013, 2014 and 2015, and fittingly now commemorated in the race title.
