Today’s top selections from the press and media feature all five runners from Clonmel, with a clear standout tip in the 4:00pm race this afternoon. So check out the top five most popular newspaper tips below, along with the best odds available.
1: BACHASSON (4:00pm Clonmel) (8 Votes)
Has stuck to hurdles, since falling in the Gold Cup two years ago and has been in good form recently. Returned to action from a year off, when winning at Navan in February, before finishing sixth in the Coral Cup at Cheltenham a fortnight ago. Back to chasing this afternoon and should have too much for the majority of competitors in this contest.

2: FARMIX (2:00pm Clonmel) (3 Votes)
Made an encouraging debut, when third at Punchestown last December, before picking up consecutive second places at this venue, including last time out, twenty days ago on heavy ground. Made all that day before being beaten by 4.25 lengths. Looks to have a great chance and a win would not surprise.

3: SHANTOU SISU (3:00pm Clonmel) (3 Votes)
The first of two runners in this 3:00pm race, Shantou Sisu tends to front run but is currently 0-15 so far, despite some decent performances. After falling at the beginning of December, he has been on a run of 342 in the three races since, including a second at todays venue over 2m 2f some twenty days ago. One of the leading contenders and could pick up their first victory today.

4: BALKOS (3:00pm Clonmel) (3 Votes)
Failed to really show much ability, but that changed when third at Punchestown last time out, a few months back. Lead down the straight that day, but faded badly to finish 5 lengths adrift. That was over 2m 4f, so today’s reduced trip is likely to give them a stronger claim.

5: ROBIN DEUX POIS (4:30pm Clonmel) (3 Votes)
Won with a first-time tongue tie, ten days ago at Newcastle which ended a fourteen race winless run. This was only his second run under Gordon Elliot’s stable and he looks to have really come on since changing yard. Battles The Trigger for the victory today and can go close.
