A mixed eight-race card at Tipperary has something for everyone on Thursday and begins with the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Race at 4.35pm.

The McGregornator concedes 5lb to each of his four rivals thanks to his Curragh success on his second appearance, and Eacharn also has experience on his side after finishing fourth twice at Dundalk behind exciting Ballydoyle youngsters.

Aidan O'Brien is represented this time by Ambiguity, a full-brother to the stable's reliable servant Cougar Mountain, as well as the 150,000-euro purchase Istan, while David Wachman's Slains Castle fetched 200,000 euro so is another newcomer to keep in mind.

O'Brien gives Three Star General his second outing in the Fundraising Events At Tipperary Races Maiden and the Dante and Derby entry, who changed hands for 675,000gns as a yearling, is expected to step forward significantly from his ordinary Gowran introduction.

The one to beat, though, is his stable companion Kellstorm because he chased home O'Brien's Epsom favourite US Army General at the Curragh on his comeback.

The biggest prize of the evening goes to the winner of the Tipperary Racecourse Celebrating 100 Years Handicap, in which Ancient Sands attempts to transfer his excellent all-weather form to turf.

He tops the weights but there appears to be current form concerns surrounding four of his five opponents, while Curley Bill hasn't tasted competitive action since October 2013.

A Few Dollars More also has a hefty burden to shoulder, this time in the Book Online At TipperaryRaces.ie Handicap, but does so on the back of a successful return to action at Cork.

Sombeodytoldme wound up last term with a couple of excellent runner-up finishes at Navan and Dundalk, and that sets the standard in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Maiden.

The pick of the jumping action is the Follow TipperaryRaces On Facebook Handicap Hurdle, with Ancient Highway gunning for a hat-trick in the hands of Grand National-winning rider David Mullins.
