Timeform pick out three bets from Tramore on Thursday.


Father Jed - Tramore 15:20

Father Jed was a comfortable two and three-quarter lengths winner of his penultimate outing at Galway and improved again to follow up from a 7 lb higher mark at Ballinrobe last time. He has a further 9 lb hike in the weights to contend with here, but remains one to keep onside in his current mood and is fancied to continue trainer John Patrick Ryan's fine form of late (three winners from last 10 runners). Lisa's Legacy was a six-length winner of her most recent outing in this sphere at Ballinrobe and is feared most.

Sam King - Tramore 15:55

Sam King shaped as if something was amiss when pulled-up on his chasing debut at this venue in August and got back on track with a fair fourth at Downpatrick. He was below that form when third on his most recent outing there, but wasn't seen to maximum effect given how the race developed and certainly showed enough to suggest he is capable of winning a similar event. He is preferred to Orchard Road, who had some fair form to his name over hurdles and could be capable of better on just his third start for Gordon Elliott.

Dark Outsider - Tramore 17:05

Dark Outsider belatedly shed his maiden tag over fences with a dominant success at Clonmel seven days ago, travelling strongly throughout on the front end and keeping on well to run out a five-length winner. He appears potentially very well treated under a 4 lb penalty here and, although the quick turnaround is an obvious concern, Dark Outsider is expected to see off the attentions of Fiddler's Bow if arriving in the same form as last time and can follow up with his stamina for this longer trip already proven.
