Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Thursday February 26

Timeform bring you three bets from Thurles
Timeform bring you three bets from Thurles

There's racing at Thurles on Thursday and Timeform have found three horses worth backing...

Thurles 14:45 - Arnaud

Useful chaser Arnaud posted his best effort of the campaign when finishing third to Champagne Fever at Gowran Park 12 days ago, and a repeat of that effort would see him go close. He was well suited by how that race developed, so isn't certain to back it up, but he has run to a similar level in the past and is worth giving the benefit of the doubt.

Thurles 15:45 - Winter Breeze

Winter Breeze produced his best effort to date under Rules when finishing third over C&D recently and he sets the standard. Winter Breeze travelled better than most last time, simply unable to live with a useful prospect, and this looks like a good opportunity to get off the mark.  

Thurles 16:55 - Don Franco

The unexposed Don Franco caught the eye to some degree on his handicap debut at Naas earlier this month, showing improved form on his previous efforts, and normal improvement should see him go close under Nina Carberry. Edmundo shaped as if retaining his ability after 18 months off in the same race at Naas and could provide the sternest challenge.
