Timeform pick out three bets from Tipperary on Thursday.


Jealika - 18:10 Tipperary

Jealika quickly dispelled a poor run at Gowran when bouncing back to form in a handicap over seven furlongs at the Curragh last time, deserving extra credit for faring best of those held up. She was forced to switch two furlongs out, and had to weave her way through, doing all her best work at the finish. The step back up to 1m will be in her favour judged on that run and the addition of first-time cheekpieces are also welcome. The hat-trick seeking pair Cosmic Symbol and Avalanch are obvious dangers, while Eadaoins Pet ran well behind the latter at Limerick and should get closer on the revised terms.

Massayan - 18:40 Tipperary

Massayan quickly developed into a useful colt last year, winning two of his three starts, showing plenty of resolution to hold off a persistent challenger in a minor event at Gowran when last seen in September. This looks a nice opening for him on return, and he rates the type to make an even better four-year-old, so he is fancied to take this before moving up in class. The more experienced Cirin Toinne just about sets the standard on form and may prove the biggest danger, though recent maiden winner Onlyhuman is also worth a mention.

Bobabout - 20:50 Tipperary

Fairly useful hurdler Bobabout was unlucky not to win returned to the Flat at Leopardstown last week, taking a strong hold in the early stages but catching the eye moving well into the race three furlongs out. He was forced to switch in the final furlong, but was ultimately given too much to do, never nearer than at the finish. Bobabout remains very well treated on his hurdling form and, able to race off the same mark now, he makes plenty of appeal. Dara Tango caught the eye on return from a 30-month absence last time and is attractively weighted if going the right way from that.
