Robin Goodfellow’s Racing Tips: Best bets for Thursday, November 12

Willie Mullins runners dominate the market for today’s televised Clonmel Oil Chase and the classy CILAOS EMERY (Clonmel, 3.0) is narrowly preferred to stablemate Bachasson.

The Mullins operation thought the selection was talented enough to tackle last season’s Champion Hurdle and he was far from disgraced in fourth, beaten less than 10 lengths by Epatante.

The decision to revert to hurdles mid-season was taken with connections believing their eight-year-old had more chance of making an impact in the Champion Hurdle than the Champion Chase, a decision they may have regretted in hindsight.

However, Cilaos Emery has the opportunity this afternoon to resume a chasing career which may have been a perfect four from four but for a first-fence fall in Leopardstown’s Grade One Dublin Chase.

His three previous successes were all achieved with a degree of comfort.

Today’s step up to two-and-a-half miles represents a tougher assignment with Bachasson, a 12-length course and distance scorer in March, leading the competition.

Interestingly, the three times Cilaos Emery has reappeared following a break of more than 230 days he has been successful.
