Thurles is Ireland's meeting on Thursday. Timeform pick out the best bets.

"Ultra Light capitalised on a lower hurdles mark in emphatic fashion at Downpatrick last week, and is still well-in under a penalty..."

Dazzling Suzie - 14:15 Thurles

Dazzling Susie has been well beaten on her last two starts, but this is easier and she'll be tough to beat if reproducing anything like the form she showed when second at Galway in September. The main opposition may come from chasing newcomer Down Ace, who had some fair form to her name in Britain and should be sharper for a recent spin over hurdles for her new yard.

Moonshine Lad - 16:25 Thurles

A good chance this will develop into a match between Moonshine Lad and He'llberemembered. The latter still looks to retain plenty of ability despite his advancing years, but there's a suspicion he may be vulnerable to the younger legs of Moonshine Lad, who developed into a pretty useful novice hurdler last term.

Ultra Light - 16:55 Thurles

Ultra Light capitalised on a lower hurdles mark in emphatic fashion at Downpatrick last week, and is still well-in under a penalty, so is the obvious port of call. Stop Road Lad will doubtless give his running, while a change of scenery might evoke an improved showing from Strain of Fame.
