Timeform pick out three bets from Naas on Monday.


Rose de Pierre - 16:30 Naas

The Dermot Weld-trained ROSE DE PIERRE won three starts last season and improved when making a winning reappearance at Leopardstown and, with the likelihood of even better to come from this daughter of Dubawi, she is taken to follow up. Rehana also made a bright start to 2017 when third in a Group 3 at that course and she is feared most. Unbeaten and unexposed, Another Story and Gladness Stakes winner Diamond Fields are also accorded respect.

Peace Envoy - 17:05 Naas

Son Of Rest confirmed his previous promise when winning easily at Cork last time, and is respected accordingly, however the step up to 7f should suit PEACE ENVOY, who made up into a smart 2-y-o last season and will prove hard to beat if fully tuned-up following a 7-month break. Noivado took a step forward when runner-up on his reappearance at Dundalk and he could be the one for the forecast.

Aared - 17:35 Naas

The Ger Lyons trio at the top of the weights are respected, however the Kevin Prendergast-trained AARED showcased a good turn of foot when making a winning reappearance over 1¼m here last month and, with the step back in trip no problem and a 6 lb rise fair, he is taken to strike again. The Tulip and Balcony command respect.
