VVDRAW for Monday's Eclipse semis - first: 1 Barricane Tiger, 2 Peregrine Falcon, 3 Minglers Thunder, 4 Droopys Buick, 5 Ballymac Darragh (m), 6 Garryglass Champ (w).
Tomas Moore's Minglers
Best is the heat winner in the second semi and this earlybird has strong opposition from the likes of Killeacle Wayne, Clares Dream and Ballybough Dad.
Over the six-bend course, Minglers

Thunder 2pts 15-8 bet365 7.
However, MINGLERS THUNDER has taken a real shine to this venue and his smart opening acceleration can enable him to control things from a good launchpad on the inside and stay one step ahead of the opposition throughout.
