Timeform bring you three bets from Navan's meeting on Saturday...

Montana Slim may be a teenager now and on a long losing run but his recent efforts show that he still has plenty to offer from this kind of mark, and he can gain a deserved success...

Navan 13:20 - Marinero

Marinero had little chance up against the exciting Douvan at Punchestown last time, but he lost little in defeat, keeping on close home in encouraging fashion. There is nothing of Douvan's quality here and it looks a good opportunity for the Tony Martin-trained novice to resume winning ways.

Navan 14:30 - Josephine Marcus

Josephine Marcus failed to make an impression in three quick starts in maiden hurdles, but she did manage to win a bumper, showing that she possesses some ability, and it would be little surprise to see an improved effort now that she's sent handicapping from a lowly mark. She is open to more improvement than many of her rivals and is worth chancing. 

Navan 15:40 - Montana Slim

Montana Slim may be a teenager now and on a long losing run but his recent efforts show that he still has plenty to offer from this kind of mark, and he can gain a deserved success. Montana Slim actually shaped better than the bare result when finishing third at Fairyhouse last time having been left too much to do, and he has a good chance based on that performance.

Back Marinero in the 13:20
Back Josephine Marcus in the 14:30
Back Montana Slim in the 15:40
