Timeform pick out three bets from Thurles on Thursday.


Moulin A Vent - 15:00 Thurles

The five-year-old MOULIN A VENT, a winner at Punchestown in November, didn't fare too badly faced with his sternest assignment to date behind Death Duty at Navan in December. He gets the narrow vote getting weight from Champagne Classic and Tin Soldier - whose trainer does well at the track - others to consider.

Gettysburg Address - 15:35 Thurles

The Noel Meade-trained GETTYSBURG ADDRESS has a stamina-laden pedigree, so the step up in trip is expected to suit, especially based on his exploits over shorter, and he gets the narrow vote. His trainer has a £34.41 profit with hurdlers being stepped up in trip for the first time since the start of the 2011/12 season. Call The Taxie sets the standard on the pick of his form and he is preferred to Moroval for the forecast spot.

Kansas City Chief - 16:10 Thurles

Bottom-weight KANSAS CITY CHIEF has improved plenty over fences this season and ran out a ready winner of a Punchestown handicap last time. He is potentially thrown in off his old hurdles mark, and it's worth noting that he won here almost a year ago on soft ground. The consistent but unexposed Sutton Manor looks the main danger.
