There's Jumps action at Ffos Las on Thursday

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Ffos Las on Thursday...

"...he looks to have leading claims of securing the hat-trick on ground which will suit."

Timeform on Cloudy Glen

Cloudy Glen - Ffos Las 14:25

Cloudy Glen has taken a little while to warm to his hurdling career, but he made a mockery of his opening mark to pick up a first win at Haydock in December, before following up at Chepstow eight days later off the same mark as the time before. Switched back into what looks a useful novice contest, he looks to have leading claims of securing the hat-trick on ground which will suit. Secret Reprieve has more to offer after his Chepstow success, as does course-winner Remastered now stepped up in trip.

Camron de Chaillac - Ffos Las 15:00

The majority of these are either making their debut or have something to prove, meaning that it is Camron de Chaillac who stands out on form. He's easing down the weights at the moment, but shaped better than the bare result suggested when seventh on his most recent star at Chepstow in January, matching strides with the winner for a long way under forcing tactics before his stamina was too stretched. Dropped 1 lb for that, and back in trip, too, he's now just 3 lb higher than his last winning mark, and he gets the vote to return to winning ways. Cougar's Gold arrives in red-hot form and is feared, along with Radical Archie.

Ice Cool Champs - Ffos Las 15:35

Ice Cool Champs is lightly-raced for an eight-year-old, with ten career starts to date, and he ran well when fourth over hurdles at Haydock last time out, rallying well when headed and giving the impression he was ready for a switch back to fences. Now just 2 lb higher than his last winning mark in this sphere, he looks well-treated and is taken to score. Cobolobo, Johanos and Late Romantic make up the shortlist.
