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

"He surely has a race of this nature within him, and can pick this race up."

Timeform on Monatomic

Monatomic - Clonmel 14:20

Monatomic has had two starts over fences so far, and he has been unlucky not to have picked up a win; in control when falling heavily at the last on debut at Tramore in October, before just failing at Fairyhouse last time out. He surely has a race of this nature within him, and can pick this race up. Poker Party was disputing when unseating at Cork last time and looks the biggest danger to the selection.

Peacocks Secret - Clonmel 14:50

Peacocks Secret seems to have finally turned a corner, completing a double under Rachael Blackmore at Naas last time. He was admittedly all out to hold on at the end, but there could well be more to come yet, and he gets the vote to complete the hat-trick with the same rider booked to ride again. The lightly-raced Lacken Bridge improved in no uncertain terms when winning at Gowran and should go well again, whilst any market support for Milanesque on his first start for a new yard would be interesting.

Castlebawn West - Clonmel 15:25

Castlebawn West got off the mark at the second time of asking here in March, looking more superior than the winning margin of just over two lengths suggested, and he looks to have a bright future over timber. He can make a winning hurdling debut for his powerful connections at the expense of Western Honour and Spyglass Hill.
