Timeform on Thosedaysaregone

Tide of Time - 17:40 Navan

Tide of Time produced a career-best effort on his final start last season, winning a five-furlong handicap at Naas in good style. The form of that race has worked out well, with runner-up Strong Johnson notably winning the Rockingham Handicap this season, and Tide of Time still looks fairly treated off an 8 lb higher mark. He handles cut in the ground (Naas win was on heavy, he has won at this course and he looks to have plenty in his favour on his return.

Patrick Sarsfield - 19:45 Navan

Patrick Sarsfield made a mockery of his opening mark at Leopardstown, justifying strong support to scoot five lengths clear of his rivals. He has been given a hefty rise in the weights by the handicapper but still looks fairly treated, such was the impression he created that day, and he remains open to plenty of improvement after only five starts. The slight step up in trip should also suit.

Thosedaysaregone - 20:15 Navan

Grade 1-winning hurdler Felix Desjy was a smart sort in bumpers and is clearly a big player on his Flat debut. However, he missed all of last season and could be worth taking on with the race-fit Thosedaysaregone, who notably won the Ladbrokes Hurdle at the Dublin Racing Festival before finishing third in the Coral Cup. He has since finished an encouraging fourth over a mile and a half at Limerick and should benefit from this step up in trip.
