Alan Dudman likes the look of two horses today at Navan in his latest boosted double on the Sportsbook...
"He looked progressive at Dundalk previously where he showed plenty of pace to win over 1m, but 1m2f looks a good distance for him and there's the possibility he can make the running today."
Conversant to enjoy return to C and D
13:15 Navan - Back Conversant
There are plenty of runners at Navan today with some well-stocked handicaps with Conversant going in one of them at 14:20, and he can build on a decent run at Fairyhouse last time.
He'll love the soft and heavy conditions as he stayed on well to win over course and distance recently when smuggled into the race from the back by Joey Sheridan. He's a 6f horse that gets a stiff minimum.
His trainer Denis Hogan won this handicap in 2018 with Gopsies Daughter, and the first four that day were all drawn high, with Conversant drawn in 18 this afternoon.

Bear could be the big story
16:05 Navan - Back Bear Story
Michael Halford's Bear Story bumped into Sir Lamorak last time at Leopardstown, which was rather unfortunate as the winner was a handicap good thing that day from 85 and won with plenty in hand. He has since gone up to 99.
That handicap at Lep' was run in a fast time although Bear Story has only gone up 2lb.
He looked progressive at Dundalk previously where he showed plenty of pace to win over 1m, but 1m2f looks a good distance for him and there's the possibility he can make the running today.
