The Punt Daily: Robbie Wilders' horse racing tip at Clonmel on Thursday
The 3m conditions hurdle at Clonmel can go the way of Pencilfulloflead at the expenseof Burrows Saint. The Willie Mullins-trained Burrows Saint is rated 3lb higher over fences but is much more exposed and Pencilfulloflead was progressing fast last season as a novice. He defeated Latest Exhibition by seven lengths in a Grade 2 before almost striking at the top level when beaten half a length by Colreevy at Limerick in December. He has run well fresh in the past and this looks a suitable starting point before he takes aim at better-quality contests.His trainer Gordon Elliott is convinced his seven-year-old has much more to offer this year.
