Timeform pick out three bets from Thurles on Thursday.

"The selection was green when second at Leopardstown on debut and shaped better than the bare result when fourth at Fairyhouse six weeks later..."

West Light - 16:00 Thurles

The Michal McDonagh-trained WEST LIGHT is 6 lb better off with Fairymount Boy on their C&D running a fortnight ago and that might be enough for him to turn to the tables on Michael Hourigan's charge with Davy Russell once again taking the ride. That was an improved effort - dropping significantly in trip - and another big effort looks on the cards. Turasoir is another with a good recent effort over C&D to his name and also makes the shortlist along with Cork maiden hurdle winner Be Rude Not To.

Mick The Jiver - 17:00 Thurles

The Eoghan O'Grady-trained MICK THE JIVER quickly progressed into a fairly useful handicap chaser earlier in the year, and he could now potentially be thrown in off a mark of 98 reverting back to hurdles (last chase win came off 120). The slightly shorter trip here shouldn't inconvenience him and a bold bid is expected. Gold Smoke and Megara both come into this in good form and merit consideration.

Us And Them - 17:30 Thurles

The Joseph O'Brien-trained US AND THEM made a really positive start to his career in the spring and is a bumper winner-in-waiting, so is marginally preferred to Rakhine State. The selection was green when second at Leopardstown on debut and shaped better than the bare result when fourth at Fairyhouse six weeks later. Boot Camp offered enough on debut to think that he has a future, too.
