Preview for seven-race mixed card at Clonmel

A seven-race mixed card at Clonmel starts at 4.25pm with the Tipperary Claiming Race, where Mighty Whitey bids to go one better than in a similar contest at Tramore last month.

Noel Kelly's charge is 5lb worse off with Auden than he would be in a handicap, so Ken Condon's contender has to be considered if recovered from his Laytown exploits on Tuesday.

David Wachman and John Oxx will be hoping to end frustrating sequences of placed efforts with their charges in the Mullinahone Maiden.

Wachman's Orator has finished second on each of his last four starts and could just have the edge over Oxx's Palace Of Winds, who has finished in the first three on her last three outings.

Marty's Magic is a danger to both of them, though, as he has shown promise in two bumpers for Dermot Weld before this Flat debut.

Wachman also has top-weight Street Party in the Tickincor Handicap, though Art Scene, who was in at Gowran Park on Wednesday, was successful at Tipperary last month and would be a threat under Pat Smullen if she turns out.

Moonbi Creek and Lady Geronimo both aim to go one better than their respective last starts when they line up in the 'My Canine Companion (South Tipperary Branch)' Handicap.

Jumping action gets under way with the 'My Canine Companion (Autism Services For Children)' Opportunity Maiden Hurdle, which sees Colm Murphy's Grove Field bid to build on a solid second at Cork.

David O'Brien's Cool Klan looks a danger on the pick of his form, while stablemate Wrong Way Corrigan is another to note.

Last-time-out winners Lily Of Killarney and Kauto Mill Rose lock horns in the Giantsgrave Handicap Hurdle, while the concluding Mylerstown Maiden Hurdle looks an ideal opportunity for the consistent Strategic Bid to open his account over timber.
