Kauto Grand Mogol goes for Grade Three glory in the Surehaul Mercedes-Benz Novice Hurdle at the Clonmel fixture that has been rearranged from last week.

Liz Doyle is in need of a boost after the fatal fall of Le Vent D'Antan at Leopardstown on Sunday, and this seven-year-old possesses plenty of quality, as highlighted by his two wins from three starts over timber, with his only defeat coming in the Navan Grade Two won by Free Expression.

Shantou Flyer was second in that event so he is big threat, as are the Willie Mullins duo of Measure Of My Dreams and Roi Des Francs.

Mullins has resisted the temptation to send Champagne Fever for the Patsy O'Brien (Glenduff) Memorial Chase, and instead relies on Turban.

The eight-year-old hasn't been at his best this campaign, though, and neither has 2013 Arkle runner-up Baily Green, so old stager Rubi Light might be worth a punt after a couple of respectable efforts in handicaps.

I Knew Well has hit the crossbar the last twice and bids for a deserved success in the opening Surehaul Race Day Maiden Hurdle at 1.35, and his owner JP McManus should have high hopes for an upturn in Coolaghknock Glebe's fortunes now blinkers are applied for the Derrygrath Novice Handicap Chase.

This is a competitive affair, though, with Black Zero seeking a four-timer and Company Coming and Winter Magic both making the frame on their two latest appearances.

Dalmatia was rated in the 70s when trained on the level by Sir Michael Stoute and made a very encouraging beginning to her jumping career at Leopardstown, so plenty is expected of her now she has experience on her side in the Kilsheelan Mares Maiden Hurdle.

Court Frontier has been picking up a head of steam between the flags and is interesting on his first run for Alan Fleming in the Woodrooff Maiden Hunters Chase.
