Timeform on Myrcella

Myrcella - 14:50 Navan

Myrcella benefited from the drop back in trip when finishing runner-up at the Curragh last month and she looked unfortunate not to win. She went like the best horse at the weights at the Curragh and was well on top of the group which raced down the centre. However, she was unable to fend off one from the group on the stand side, which seemed to be at an advantage. That was an encouraging performance, she is unexposed as a sprinter in handicaps and Colin Keane is an excellent jockey booking.

Sendmylovetoyou - 16:00 Navan

Sendmylovetoyou sprang a surprise to win on debut at the Curragh in August, showing a good attitude to strike at 25/1, and she ran to a better level when finishing fourth on her handicap debut at the same venue this month, keeping on strongly against more experienced rivals. Being pitched into a strongly-run, competitive handicap is likely to aid her development and this well-bred filly - her dam won a Group 2 - remains capable of better.

El Tren - 16:30 Navan

El Tren is in top form and was unlucky not to follow up his Curragh success with a win at Thurles this month. He found trouble in the straight and finished with plenty still to give, so remains one to be positive about while in such good form. The step up in trip is no problem - he finished runner-up over C&D last month - and he holds leading claims.
