Wonder no more, Tylery can triumph at Tipp

THERE won't be any time for blinking in the Join The Tipperary Supporters Club Handicap (6.05) this evening and Tylery Wonder might be able to show his fellow sprinters a clean pair of heels.

Willie McCreery's speedy four-year-old showed bundles of early speed on his return to action at the Curragh earlier this month and the drop down to the minimum trip for tonight's contest could see him register as third career success. 

The key for Billy Lee is to get him over to the farside rail early and, if he can manage that, he will be hard to pass. There are three or four course regulars in the line-up, including last year's winner Allegra Tak, but they are getting on a bit and Tylery Wonder is the one with the most potential for improvement over the 5f trip. 

Springbelle looks an out and out stayer, even at this early stages of her career, and she should relish the stamina test in the 3m maiden hurdle (8.05). 

She got outpaced rounding the home turn over 2m4f at Cork last time and just stayed on at the one pace to take fourth behind Sonny B. The track, trip and ground should suit better this evening and a first success could be on the cards. 

Drive On Locky looks the one in the 2m4f handicap hurdle (7.35). He won cosily off a mark of 91 at Tramore last week and a 6lb rise might not be enough to prevent him from following up.
