Rule The Waves attempts to build on last week's encouraging debut when he goes to post for the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden, which kicks off Thursday's Tipperary fixture at 6pm.

Another son of War Front from Aidan O'Brien's Ballydoyle yard, the juvenile finished third behind stablemate Battle Of Marathon at Leopardstown and now has blinkers fitted as he drops to the minimum distance.

Folk Law couldn't justify favouritism on her Cork introduction but the experience shouldn't be lost on her, and the battle-hardened Lupie is another legitimate threat after her latest third to Queen Mary heroine Anthem Alexander.

O'Brien has freshened Lone Star up since his disappointing handicap debut at Leopardstown back in April, and the Dundalk winner is given a chance to redeem himself in the Ladies Day At Tipperary Sunday 20th July Rated Race.

Calm Bay attempts to strike again while the iron is hot in the Tipperary Family Day Saturday 12th July Handicap.

Harry Rogers' eight-year-old followed up a Navan success with a Down Royal win just a week later, and makes another swift reappearance.

Prince Connoisseur has been given significantly longer to get over his debut success at Dundalk in January, and he has more on his plate in the Pride Of Tipperary Festival 2014 Handicap.

Between them, John Oxx and Mick Halford have won three of the last four renewals of the Follow TipperaryRaces On Twitter Maiden, and they could fight it out again courtesy of Wrap Star and Dabasan respectively.

Roisin Dubh had been in excellent fettle prior to coming unstuck on her chasing debut recently, but she reverts to the level for the Pride Of Tipperary Launch Handicap and should have a say in the outcome from the foot of the weights.

Shutter Island brings winning National Hunt form to the table in the tipperaryraces.ie Handicap and is capable of progressing much higher than his mark of 47.
