Robert Tyner believes Tullintain is coming to himself at just the right time as he aims to go one better than last year in Thursday's Goffs Thyestes Chase at Gowran Park.

The 10-year-old was second to On His Own 12 months ago and showed he was coming back to something approaching his best when second in a valuable handicap at Limerick last time out.

He also holds an entry in the Leopardstown Handicap Chase on Saturday, but Gowran will be his destination.

"He'll run in the Thyestes, where we'll hope to go one better than last year. You never know, it's a very competitive race," said Tyner.

"He was unlucky the last day, Jim Dreaper's horse (Harpsy Cord) fell and interfered badly with us, otherwise we would have won. Mind, if he hadn't fallen, we'd still only have been second.

"He's on a similar mark to last year and he seems to come to himself at this time of year.

"He seems to go through the heavy ground well enough, so that won't be a problem."

Paddy Power make Tullintain an 11-1 chance to avenge last year's defeat.
