Dermot Weld looks to have a strong hand at Tipperary on Thursday, with Edelmira an exciting newcomer in the Book Online At tipperaryraces.ie Fillies Maiden.

The daughter of Peintre Celebre holds an entry in the Irish Oaks and, notably, her dam is a half-sister to Ebadiyla, who claimed victory in that event in 1997.

More prestigious engagements remain on hold, though, as she has to see off the more experienced pair of Tirghra and Toe The Line on debut.

The master of Rosewell will also hope for a big run from Elegant Peace in the Follow tippeararyraces On Twitter Handicap.

First-time blinkers brought further improvement on her seasonal bow at Cork but she may have to be at her absolute best to see off John Constable.

The Aidan O'Brien inmate is entered in a couple of Classics and will be striving to atone for a narrow defeat at Navan last weekend.

The Coolmore team take the wraps off an exciting newcomer in the Join The Tipperary Races Supporter's Club (C & G) Maiden.

Their Falkirk fetched €500,000 at Goffs and connections will be keen to see if he shows enough to head towards his entries in the Epsom Derby and Irish version.

The Bolger yard will be hopeful of a repeat success for two of their runners, with Sun On The Run aiming to supplement his Cork victory in the opening Follow Tipperary Races On Facebook Race at 4.35.

The Whipper gelding's victory was franked when the runner-up came out and struck at the Curragh subsequently.

Fiosrach has to defy a 5lb penalty in the tipperaryraces.com Handicap to earn his quick-fire double after victory at Limerick last week.

Mrs Bolger will be hoping her colours are also carried to success in the Fundraising Events At Tipperary Races Handicap.

The Brendan Duke-trained Focussed shaped as if he would come on for the run when he made the frame at Cork and he can make his mark with that effort under his belt.
