Preview tipperary 16th Aug
Jumps and Flat fans are catered for at Tipperary on Tuesday with a mixed card that gets underway at 4.50 with the Irish Stallion Farms E.B.F. Claiming Maiden.
Member State finished ahead of a subsequent winner when fourth on a pleasing debut at the Galway Festival and is expected to put that experience to good use in the opening seven-furlong event.
Almanaara has a good chance to finally get off the mark in the Book Online At TipperaryRaces.ie Maiden after Dermot Weld's three-year-old missed out by just a short head at Naas 15 days ago.
Lady Ranger has been knocking on the door and is likely to make a bold bid under top weight in the Follow TipperaryRaces On Twitter Handicap, while the -in-form Lord Justice is another who could successfully concede weight all round in the Fundraising Events At Tipperary Races Handicap.
The Follow TipperaryRaces On Facebook Handicap is a tricky puzzle for punters to solve but Liberality and Invernata arrive on the back of near misses at Gowran and Tramore respectively last week and hold leading claims on those pieces of form.
The Tipperary Racecourse Centenary Year 3-Y-O Maiden Hurdle is the first of three National Hunt contests and Gordon Elliott's Trespassed sets the form standard with his second in a similar event over this course and distance a fortnight ago.
Elliott also saddles Canny Tom in the Racing Again At Tipperary On August 25th Handicap Hurdle but he will do well to get the better of Killarney runner-up Joy Neville and Aurora's Dream, who won well at Downpatrick earlier in the month.
Emma Beag aims for a double in the TipperaryRaces.ie Handicap Hurdle and could be tough to stop if in the same form as when a facile scorer at Sligo off a 7lb lower mark last time out.
