There is only one place to be on Thursday and that’s Clonmel as there is an action packed day of horse racing going down.
Storm Ali may affected the Ploughing, but it won’t affect proceedings at Clonmel tomorrow as runners, riders, trainers and spectators flock to the Tipperary town to take in what is sure to be an epic day of racing.
15:50 The Mylstertown Maiden Hurdle
Henry de Bromhead took home the victory in this event last year, and it is hard to look past him again in 2018 as Ourauldman looks like a shoe-in at 11/4. Age is on the horses side going into the race and don’t be surprise if it romps home in the end.
16:25 The Giantsgrave Handicap Hurdle
Whoyakodding is the 5/1 favourite for this race, however we are throwing our lot in behind 8/1 shout Indian Music. The W.J Burke trained horse is carrying some of its best form into the race and will be within touching distance come the finale.
17:00 The Kilsheelan Mares Maiden Hurdle
Dalouga seems like the form horse at 9/2 and is difficult to look past going into the third race of the day. The Gordon Elliott trained horse has finished second in its previous three outings and could finally go one step further tomorrow.
17:30 The Irish Stallion Farms EBF Handicap Hurdle
Ingleby Mackenzie is the nailed on favourite here at 9/4. Brian Hayes will be on board the horse that has four wins in its last six races, that form is hard to look beyond. However, don’t be surprised if we see an upset in the way of 10/1 outside You Can’t Catch Me. The Kieran Purcell trained horse has showed great form lately and should be there or there about come the final furlong.
18:00 The New Inn Opportunity Rated Novice Hurdle
Irish Lass is your best bet here. The Willie Mullins trained horse is the favourite at 13/8 and has won two of its last three races. For an outside bet, look no further than Brex Drago at 7/2.
18:30 The Lisronagh Opportunity Handicap Hurdle
Toughest race of the day to call. SportsJOE are stumping for the 5/1 shot in Double Windsor who has won over the same distance and at the same course before. This one is anybody’s guess.
19:00 The Munster (Pro/Am) Flat Race
Our final race of the day sees Willie Mullins instilled as favourite once again. Kerry Star is priced at 6/4, having finished third in its last race, the horse will be expected to go two steps further at 7pm tomorrow. The horse is up against some serious competition in Scotman’s Bay which is second favourite at 7/2.
There you have it, SportsJOE have had their say on tomorrows races in Clonmel. Remember to bet responsibly and don’t blame us when the shit hits the fan.
