Timeform pick out their three best bets from Roscommon on Tuesday evening...
"He was a winner from a mark of 105 over hurdles for Charlie Longsdon, but is now a stone lower in this sphere."
Timeform on Crack of Thunder
Top-rated CRACK OF THUNDER proved a let-down after 15 months off/first start for this yard at Perth last week but is given another chance off what remains a tempting mark. He was a winner from a mark of 105 over hurdles for Charlie Longsdon, but is now a stone lower in this sphere. Better B Quick and Rancher Lass head the dangers.
The 10-year-old BENDANELLA stepped up on his eye-catching comeback run when third at Limerick and is clearly one to consider with the added benefit of plenty of experience over fences under his belt. Useful hurdler Yaha Fizz is the class act here but needs to leave his reappearance/yard debut well behind as he tackles fences for the first time.
Competitive stuff, but the unexposed six-year-old FLORAMAR showed a really willing attitude when making his first try over 3m a winning one here in June and a 5 lb rise shouldn't prevent a very bold follow-up bid, especially with Barry Geraghty an eye-catching jockey booking. Ourmanmassini is well handicapped nowadays, while Crown of Thorns is expected to cast aside a tame effort last time.
