The Paparazzi Kid looks picture perfect at Clonmel

Tuesday, Mar 21 2017

The Paparazzi Kid will bid to follow-up on his win at Wexford on St Patrick's Day as he takes his chance in the feature at Clonmel on Tuesday, the Suir Valley Chase.

The Willie Mullins trained 10-year-old won a veterans' contest at Wexford, but takes on some younger rivals now in this two-mile-three-furlong event.

Ruby Walsh takes the ride on the Milan gelding, and he is sure to have plenty of supporters.

Knockraha Pylon also won last time out at Thurles, and she is an obvious danger with Paul Townend in the saddle for Adrian Maguire.

Mozoltov, who was well-beaten at Navan on Sunday, My Murphy, who finished down the field at Wexford, and the Andrew McNamara-trained Val De Ferbet complete the line-up.

Strike Is Back is another to be turned out again quickly, and she looks the one to beat in the opening Goatenbridge Maiden Hurdle.

The daughter of Darsi went down by just half a length at Limerick on Saturday, and she should be able to go one place better now in a contest of this quality.

The Ardfinnan Maiden Hurdle appears a more competitive affair, with Moroval, Nanny Stone, Nicat's Benefit and Hickey's Rock the ones to focus on.

Logical Song, No Dice and Knockraha Boss are the stand out names in the Slievenamon Beginners Chase, while another bold bid looks likely from dual course winner Zipporah in the Vee Handicap Hurdle.

Larry Capri disappointed last time out at Naas, but he will bid to bounce back to form in the Martinstown Opportunity Handicap Chase.

Dinnie's Vinnie, who won last time out at Thurles, is likely to feature prominently in the betting, while Soaring High, Flynsini, and top-weight Garrai Phaidin are others to consider in this competitive contest.

The concluding Clonmel INH Flat Race is another wide-open affair, with Imperial Way, Clitandre, point-to-point winner De Rasher Counter, and Mon Eldorado, who is making his debut for Gordon Elliott, a few for the shortlist.
