Heirloom is going the right way for Aidan O'Brien and he is one to keep an eye on at Tipperary on Monday.

The Dansili colt was good value for his one-length victory at Gowran earlier in the month and there could be plenty more to come from him as he bids to follow up in the South Tipperary Tourism Fundraiser 6th October Handicap.

Lightly-raced four-year-old Vasanta Navaratri is interesting off an initial mark of 89 having shaped as though this 1m 4f trip could suit when he landed a 1m Dundalk maiden in good style on his second start.

Convocate also steps up in trip after getting off the mark at the second attempt and adds further spice to the afternoon's feature.

Some big yards are represented in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden, including O'Brien whose Emperors Song can be expected to step up on his moderate Gowran debut.

Diamond Stilettos almost sprang a 66-1 shock when third at the Curragh first time out, while the David Wachman-trained Amygdala and John Murphy's Dimity have been knocking on the door and will be looking to put their experience to good use.

Willie McCreery has two good chances in the space of half an hour, starting with Hail Shower in the tipperaryraces.ie Apprentice Handicap.

The Red Clubs filly didn't quite get home over 7f when bidding for a double last week and the minimum trip should be more suitable this time, while South Ring attempts to improve on her latest silver medal in the Follow Tipperary Races On Facebook Maiden.

The action gets under way at 2.15 with the Super Sunday 6th October Claiming Race, in which Kentra has her sights lowered after contesting some decent handicaps, while Lady Rutherford looks to build on a promising debut third at Tramore in the closing Super Sunday 6th October Claiming Race.
