Thurles betting tips: Peter O’Hehir’s selections for Thursday’s horse racing action

The Mouse Morris-trained Last Man Standing should open his account in today’s Holycross Maiden Hurdle in Thurles.

The lightly-raced five-year-old has shaped with plenty of promise in his three
outings, most recently when chasing home four-year-old Pete So High over two miles at this venue. And, stepping up significantly in trip, he makes plenty of appeal.

Prior to that solid second, Last Man Standing had made a very promising debut
finishing fourth to Sharjah in Gowran Park. And he also filled fourth behind Vengeful at this venue.

Davy Russell, in double form in Fairyhouse yesterday, renews his partnership with Last Man Standing and, in the hope the Flemensfirth gelding proves effective over this trip of almost three miles, he gets the vote to beat Joseph O’Brien’s Border Control, runner-up to Another Barney at Naas last time.

Willie Mullins has a number of good chances, including Turcagua, runner-up to stable-companion Bonbon Au Miel on his fencing debut at Navan, in the opening Templemore Beginners Chase, and Clinton Hill, in the Wylie colours, in the bumper.

Beaten by Dunvegan on his debut at Fairyhouse, Flemensfirth gelding Clinton Hill is entitled to improve from that experience. And he might have the edge over All For Joy.

But the Mullins-trained Didero Vallis might struggle against Harry Kelly’s Great Trango in the featured Horse & Jockey Hotel Rated Novice Hurdle.

Conqueror of Riders On the Storm in a maiden hurdle at Limerick over Christmas, he finished fourth to Tom Taaffe’s progressive gelding at Navan last time, but looks a solid option here.
