Navan Saturday

Today’s card at Navan is a slave to the sun as there may be a race against time to thaw out the track after a few hard frosts. If the card gets the green light we have a few nice horses going to post.

In the opener, a rated novice hurdle we have LANDRAKE who seems to be taking his racing well and graduating nicely in each class. He takes another step forward here today and will have the wise hands of Davy Russell in the saddle. We hope he can put in a good performance.


For the feature race of the day we have three runners. At the top of the weights we have GRAND ROI is now a NR. FELIX DESJY will also be getting a claimer in the shape of Corey McGivern who has a very useful 7lbs. Finally we have AU FLEURON is now a NR

MRS PAISLEY has her debut for the yard and she comes will nice form. She is for owner breeder Michael Conaghan and is a sister to Paisley Park so it would be great to get a 1 beside her name for her duties in the breeding shed. She has a workable mark in this handicap hurdle and will be ridden by Jordan Gainford.

The bumper has been moved to the middle of the card and we have the one runner, MY TRUMP CARD is now a NR

Our final runner of the afternoon is GARS DE SCEAUX in the beginners chase. Its a small enough field and Gars is returning after over a year off the track. He has been doing well at home and this looks a nice place to start him off and Davy Russell has been booked to guide he around.
