Timeform pick out three bets from Navan on Saturday.


Naughty Or Nice - Navan 16:10

Naughty Or Nice looked potentially useful when making a successful racecourse debut at Gowran Park three weeks ago, staying on to lead as the field entered the final furlong and quickly forging clear thereafter. She ought to progress further as her stamina is drawn out and gets the nod. Belgravia is another going the right way and rates the chief threat.

Les Arceaux - Navan 17:15

Les Arceaux failed to justify strong market support when only fifth on his handicap debut at Kempton six weeks ago, but is evidently thought to be on a good mark and is worth another chance back on turf. Less of That made a promising start to life in handicaps when fourth at Dundalk last week and can give the selection most to do this afternoon.

Flirt - Navan 17:45

Flirt shaped encouragingly when third on her debut for the Johnny Murtagh yard at Gowran Park last month and should prove extremely difficult to beat if making the expected progress here. The Tulip shaped as if needing the run on her recent return to action and should be spot on now. She rates the main danger in what looks a competitive race of its kind.
