Timeform on Commander of Fleet

Coeur Sublime - 12:35 Fairyhouse

Coeur Sublime had a raft of subsequent winners behind when winning a Navan maiden on the Flat in April, and made an equally promising start in this sphere when outpointing Our Legend and 10 others at Down Royal. The fact he was sent off at odds-on that day is a pointer to the regard he is held and, armed with considerable potential, he can take this step up in class in his stride. Lever du Soleil rates the main danger ahead of the selection's stablemate Chief Justice.

Commander of Fleet - 13:05 Fairyhouse

The sky could be the limit for Commander of Fleet, who took his career tally to 3-3 when making a winning hurdles debut at Punchestown recently. He's down in trip and up significantly in class now, but he left a deep impression last time, appealling as the type who could improve significantly moving forward, and he should prove hard to beat. Quick Grabim is taken to reverse Navan placings with stablemate Aramon and emerge as the main danger.

Apple's Jade - 14:40 Fairyhouse

A third consecutive victory in this Grade 1 beckons for Apple's Jade, who was below par on her final 2 starts of last season but returned to action with an authoritative display in the Lismullen Hurdle at Navan 3 weeks ago. The versatile Supasundae will ensure that Apple's Jade doesn't have things all her own way, while Limini and Sutton Place can do battle for minor honours.
