CLONMEL: The best bet may come in the last race of the day. Shamrock’s nap on Thursday runs in the 5.15.
LOCAL CELEBRITY has been a beaten favourite in his last threee starts so he’s not an obvious starting point as a nap of the day.
However, such is the weakness of opposition in the 5.15 at Clonmel that today is surely the day that the door opens.
The Willie Mullins trained runner doesn’t look a world beater by any means but the step back to the minimum trip and soft ground combination should be enough.
Of his rivals today most of the main dangers have lengthy absences to overcome including Garryncurra and Jack The Pirate off the course for 210 and 292 days respectively.I prefer Jack The Pirate of the pair.
The BETDAQ betting suggests the maiden hurdle at 2.45 is a match between Mississippi River and Mickelson both of whom have had plenty of chances. Mississippi River has achieved the most in my book and his second to Rebel Fitz (went on to win again) is decent form in the context of the race.
NAP: Local Celebrity (Clonmel 5.15)
NEXT BEST: Mississippi River (Clonmel 2.45)
