Using "cut" for field "N" thru the "last" field

Isn't there a method for using cut to grab, for instance, the 3rd thru the "remaining" fields in a space delimited string.

String example: ExStr="One 2 three for"

Let's say I want "all fields beyond field 2 (3-end of the string). Doesn't cut work with some limited set of wildcards for this...

IE: echo $ExStr | cut -f 3- -d " "

Please use plain text.

3- would specify 3 thru the last
