Timeform pick out their three best bets from Tipperary on Thursday...

"...he can back up those performances and prove he’s capable of winning a contest like this."

Timeform on Vormir

Vormir - 16:55 Tipperary

VORMIR has taken a step forward on his last two starts when fourth and third respectively. He got the front last time and nearly stole the race under an enterprising ride from Colin Keane, who kicked clear two furlongs out before only being caught close home. He retains the ride and with quicker ground aiding his cause in seeing out the trip, he can back up those performances and prove he's capable of winning a contest like this.

Yafordadoe - 18:25 Tipperary

A slight drop back in trip looks an excellent move for YAFORDADOE after an eye-catching fourth last time out at Killarney. He hit the front over a furlong out before the soft ground and trip that stretched his stamina took effect. He can remain competitive off this mark and with quicker ground and 100 yards less to go today, he can go in here for Gavin Cromwell at an appealing price.

Hit The Bid - 18:55 Tipperary

HIT THE BID makes his reappearance off the back of a five-month break after a winter in Dubai and he rates as the one to beat in this listed contest. If repeating the form of his two seconds when handicapping out there off a mark of 110, he will take all the beating in his contest. Chris Hayes keeps the ride and now following a similar pattern here, given he finished second in this contest last year, he can go one better in what looks a weaker renewal. He has the ability to go close in this company, it just depends on how ready he is to go on his first start since March.
