Timeform pick out three bets from Thurles on Thursday.
Smadynium - Thurles 12:45
Smadynium proved better than ever when successful on debut for the John Joseph Hanlon yard at Fairyhouse 15 days ago, travelling strongly in the leaders' slipstream throughout and quickly drawing clear as the field turned into the straight. That form leaves him 2 lb clear of his nearest rival on Timeform ratings here and, with his trainer in such fine form at present (three winners from last eight runners), Smadynium is fancied to see off the attentions of C&D winner Garrai Phaidin and can complete the hat-trick from 9 lb higher in the weights.
Neddyvaughan - Thurles 14:50
Neddyvaughan appeared to relish the return to less testing conditions when belatedly getting off the mark over this C&D seven days ago, finding plenty to lead between the final two flights and appearing to have more in hand than the official winning margin would suggest. He has a 6 lb penalty to contend with here, but remains potentially well-treated such was the ease of that victory and should prove extremely difficult to beat if arriving in the same form. Canny Tom is consistent and looks the main danger over the same C&D as when second last time.
Tb Broke Her - Thurles 15:25
Tb Broke Her was disappointing when down the field on her most recent outing at Fairyhouse, but shaped as if something may have been amiss on that occasion and can be forgiven one blip in a series of otherwise consistent efforts. She had previously run as well as ever when two lengths second at Wexford in October and - 1 lb clear of her nearest rival on Timeform ratings here - Tb Broke Her is taken to bounce back and can register the third victory of her career. Quelle Belle Vie ran well when fourth at Tipperary last time and is feared most.
