Tipperary provides Timeform's best bets in Ireland on Thursday.

"...Duarte Fernandes was doing his best work at the finish when not far behind that pair on his handicap debut at Fairyhouse recently and has sound prospects of turning the tables."

Aughnacurraveel (19:30) would have benefited from a stronger pace when attempting to follow-up his Dundalk win at Listowel earlier in the month and he is worth chancing to bounce back here in this big field. Feile Bride is also worth considering following a better effort last time, whilst Oneeightofamile has plummeted in the weights on his return from a long absence for his new yard and is another of interest.

In the following maiden (20:00), the well-bred Granddukeoftuscany is likely to be a completely different proposition following his eye-catching debut at the Curragh this month and commands respect, but marginal preference is for Wrap Star, who was a few places ahead of him in third that day and remains open to further progress himself. Dabasan makes the most appeal of the remainder.

In the middle-distance handicap at 20:30, Shutter Island is respected upped in trip on his Flat return following an improved win over hurdles earlier in the month and should go well, alongside Hangar Five and Teochrios, but Duarte Fernandes was doing his best work at the finish when not far behind that pair on his handicap debut at Fairyhouse recently and has sound prospects of turning the tables. Mahrajaan is another worth considering.
