Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Saturday September 27

Timeform have three bets for you at Navan
Timeform have three bets for you at Navan

There's racing at Navan on Saturday afternoon and Timeform have three selections for you...

That was Benemeade's first start for three months and he is entitled to further progress with the benefit of that run under his belt...

Bless The Wings hasn't won for a while, but he has been doing little wrong over fences of late for his current yard, finishing in the first three on his three most recent outings, and he is interesting back over hurdles in the 14:55. A reproduction of the kind of form that Bless The Wings has been showing over fences would give him strong claims and he is worth siding with.

Tony Martin's Manuka is a potential blot on the handicap in the two-and-a-half mile hurdle at 16:05, and he is well worth chancing. This doesn't look an easy task, the likes of Sir Ector and Dashing Lady arriving on the back of good efforts, but Manuka is completely unexposed having made just the three starts in this sphere, not knocked about on his qualifying run, and he starts off from a mark that could underestimate his ability, mindful of the fairly useful form he has shown on the level. 

Benemeade has made a reasonable start over fences and can make it third time lucky by winning the two-and-a-half mile beginners' chase at 17:15. Noel Meade's charge has always shown promise, a winner of a bumper and twice over hurdles, and he built on his chasing debut when finishing runner-up at Listowel last time, the front pair pulling well clear of the remainder. That was his first start for three months and he is entitled to further progress with the benefit of that run under his belt.
