Thurles horse racing tips – Thursday, November 18 

Thursday Irish horse racing comes from Thurles, where they host a seven-race card. Our Irish expert has selected these top bets on the card which you can check out below. 

Beacon Edge (12:00 Thurles) 

A very interesting Beginners Chase to start the card with three standout contenders. The Bosses Oscar has shown his aptitude for fences already with two placed efforts, and the recent Royal Ascot winner Stratum brings solid flat and hurdle from on his first start over the larger obstacles. 

However, they both will do well to beat BEACON EDGE after the seven-year-old was sent off a warm order on chasing debut last time and put in a solid round of jumping to finish second. 

Noel Meade’s charge was a very decent hurdler, winning a Grade 2 event at Navan earlier this year. beacon edge looks to have a solid favourites chance in this opening contest and his recent chasing experience will put him in good stead on his second chase start. 

Quantum Realm (13:00 Thurles)

Idas Boy will be popular amongst many punters after readily winning last time out, however, he looks to have more on his plate this time around with the likes of Listed hurdle third Mr Josiey Wales and QUANTUM REALM who was impressive at Punchestown last time out. 

Sent off 8/11 last time, Quantum Realm put in a strong staying performance when making all to win over an extended 2m4f. The step-up in distance will not be an issue for this former winning point-to-pointer and the five-year-old can follow up again and provide trainer Gordon Elliot with another recent winner.

Gali Flight (14:00 Thurles) 

It was encouraging to see a return to form last time for GALI FLIGHT who appeared to relish the increase in stamina when chasing home Cute Cherry at Clonmel on his latest outing. 

Gali flight was nicely clear of the third that day and trainer Philip Fenton has enlisted the services of Brian Hayes who takes over from a 7lb claimer. The five-year-old is one of the least exposed runners in the field of 19 and if backing up that recent return to form, he should go very close in this.
