Horse Racing tips: Our trader’s 3 top picks for Thurles on Thursday

Here's 3 to see if Thursday's a winner.

Thurles racecourse


Thurles 15:45 – Legal Thriller

There’s a couple of last time out winners in this race but Legal Thriller definitely improved last time for the application of cheekpieces when second at Cork.

The handicapper has put her up 3lb for that, but she should still be capable of getting involved. The Jim Bolger stable is in relatively good form of late and Legal Thriller can add to his tally.

Thurles 16:15 – Prime Chief

This doesn’t look the strongest of 1m 4f handicaps and Jarlath Fahey’s Prime Chief can be involved at the business end. Sam Ewing retains the ride and is good value for his 7lb claim after the pair finished seventh at Cork last month on his seasonal debut.

That was only his second try at this trip, having finished second at Dundalk last November on his first try before signing off for the season. With that Cork run under his belt, I’d expect him to get a lot closer this time.
He looks my best bet on the card.

Thurles 16:45 – Flindt 

Trainer Dot Love has the services of Irish champion jockey Colin Keane for a couple of her runners and his booking for Flindt in the 2m Flat handicap catches the eye.

He can go close in this.
