Walsh, Mullins & Wylie are fancied to land another big winner
Walsh, Mullins & Wylie are fancied to land another big winner

Saturday's card from Navan features Grade 2 action, with some familiar faces returning to the fold.

"Felix Yonger has won at this level already this season and looks a more solid option than Flemenstar..."

Bog War - 15:15 Navan

Bog War took a big step forward when third at Punchestown last month, just failing, and can gain compensation here. Limerick winner Occidental Lady is feared having gone up just 5 lb for that success, while Swantykay is worth a look back from an absence for the in-form Gordon Elliott.

Felix Yonger - 16:25 Navan

Felix Yonger has won at this level already this season and looks a more solid option than Flemenstar, who was a top-class chaser for Peter Casey but hasn't been seen since making a winning start for Tony Martin in November 2013. Argocat is another who will have a big say in matters if a return to fences sees him recapture his best form.

Akorakor - 16:55 Navan

Akorakor has more on his plate back in a handicap but he could easily have more to come for Gordon Elliott and can make it two out of two since rejoining the stable. The lightly-raced Best of Three will be suited by the drop back in trip and is less exposed than most of these, while Marshim will also be thereabouts if reproducing the sort of form he showed when winning over fences recently.
