Racing in Clonmel this afternoon

Clonmel plays host to a seven-race jumps card today.

Nine are set to face the starter in the most valuable contest on the card – the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Handicap Hurdle worth €15,000 – which gets underway at 5.30.

Joseph O’Brien has been in red-hot form of late and the Melbourne Cup-winning trainer will fancy his chances of adding to his impressive tally for the season with recent Downpatrick winner Paris Texas in the New Inn Opportunity Rated Novice Hurdle at 6 o’clock.

The first at Powerstown Park is off at 3.50 this afternoon.
