Timeform Irish SmartPlays: Sunday November 24

Navan plays host to racing on Sunday.

Timeform suggest three bets at Navan this afternoon...

Go Paddy Go has obvious claims after scoring last time, but Court Frontier was a big eye-catcher at Cork a week ago, and makes plenty of appeal on his handicap debut in Navan's 12:55. Firethorn and Easy Reach are others to consider. The selection showed ability in pair of bumpers (trained by Liz Lalor first occasion), and best effort over hurdles when fourth of 19 in 2m maiden at Cork last week. Better to come now handicapping, and respected.

An interesting renewal of this Grade 2 novice, with 4-y-o Carriganog among those putting unbeaten records on the line, but he may find Lots of Memories (13:25) and Azorian too strong over this trip, with Paul Fahey's charge taken to come out on top. The six-year-old won the last of his six starts in bumpers and taken well to hurdling, landing novices at Listowel and Cork (Grade 3 by 10 lengths over 3m). Gives the strong impression there is even better to come.

A wide-open renewal of this prestigious handicap and it's possible to make a case for the vast majority. Pass The Hat (14:25) gets the vote in anticipation of the longer trip suiting but Rockyaboya is expected to prove a big threat for an in-form yard. Raz de Maree has a long absence to overcome but makes as much appeal as any of those towards the head of the weights.
