Pack Your Bags for winning trip

The toughness of jockeys can rarely be questioned but Rachael Blackmore is further evidence of that as she returns to action today following a heavy fall at Punchestown last week.

Blackmore rides Commandant in the feature race of the day at Tipperary but may have to settle for minor honours behind PACK YOUR BAGS (6.40).

Sequence

Robert Tyner's charge had his winning sequence stopped when returning over hurdles in search of a hat-trick, but he looks more a chaser and can get his head back in front in the Tipperary Racecourse Handicap Chase.

The foundations for another trainers' championship for Willie Mullins were laid with a good summer last year and Mullins runs the most interesting horse on the card today, BRAHMA BULL (7.10).

Last seen when competing in Grade One company over hurdles, Brahma Bull was one of the novice chasers that Mullins didn't manage to get a run into last season, but he is a nice ride for Brian Hayes to pick up in the Berkshire @ Kedrah House Stud Beginners Chase.

Gordon Elliott also has an interesting runner in the first with CARRIE DES CHAMPS (5.10).

The three-time bumper winner might be a nice recruit to hurdles for owner Kenny Alexander.

REWRITETHERULES (7.40) was a decent winner at Down Royal on Monday and might well have what it takes to win for the second time in a week in the Glenview And Rathbarry Stud Novice Hunters Chase.
