Horse racing tips: Your 3 best bets for Thursday at Thurles

A trio from our trading insiders.

Thurles racecourse


14:00 – Uisce Solas

This dual bumper winner has been set some stiff tasks to date in two outings over hurdles. She struggled to get involved in the For Auction Novice Hurdle at Navan recently but faces a far easier task here stepping up in trip in mares only company. The highly promising Darragh O’Keeffe is booked to ride and this runner should prove difficult to beat.

14:30 – Something Sweet

This highly consistent mare was quite impressive in victory over this course and distance two weeks ago. She was raised seven pounds for that effort but that shouldn’t stop her from going very close in this contest. The booking of Davy Russell only adds to her appeal.

15:05 – Percy B Shelley

A competitive two mile handicap hurdle but Percy B Shelley was a staying on third in his first jumps race for this yard. Reigning champion jockey Paul Townend is booked for the ride and this horse holds solid claims for hitting the frame at the very least.
