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

"...should be able to open his account starting life for a top yard in a race that's distinctly lacking in depth."

Timeform on Cash Back

NATURALLY BLOND - 14:30 Thurles

NATURALLY BLOND was holding his form pretty well when last seen in the winter, and has to be taken seriously on these terms back over fences with the ground in his favour. Gentleman Duke and Battling Spirit head the dangers.

CASH BACK - 15:05 Thurles

Though he's been off the track for a long time, CASH BACK showed himself capable of fairly useful form in France and should be able to open his account starting life for a top yard in a race that's distinctly lacking in depth. Automatic shaped nicely under a considerate ride at Clonmel last time and could provide the main danger ahead of Cosmo's Moon

SMOKING GUN - 16:45 Thurles

The six-year-old SMOKING GUN resumed progress to make a winning handicap debut at Gowran 19 days ago. He's now won three of his last four starts, and may well have more to offer now stepped up further in trip. The Gatechecker and Salty Boy are a couple of others to consider.
