150p 2. COEUR SUBLIME Gordon Elliott B. J. Cooper
149 5. LEVER DU SOLEIL Gavin Patrick Cromwell G. N. Fox
147 1. CHIEF JUSTICE Gordon Elliott Davy Russell

Analyst's Verdict:
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. He is armed with considerable potential and 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.

147p 3. TRIPLICATE Joseph Patrick O'Brien M. P. Walsh
145 1. ARAMON W. P. Mullins P. Townend

Analyst's Verdict:
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 should prove hard to beat nonetheless. Quick Grabim is taken to reverse Navan placings with stablemate Aramon and emerge as the main danger.

157 2. CADMIUM W. P. Mullins P. Townend
155p 1. BLOW BY BLOW Gordon Elliott J. W. Kennedy
155p 4. DELTA WORK Gordon Elliott Davy Russell

Analyst's Verdict:
Gordon Elliott has bagged this prize 4 times since 2010 and Delta Work could be another on what may turn out to be a red letter day for the yard. Winner of the Pertemps Final at the Cheltenham Festival in March, he jumped well when making a successful chase debut at Down Royal and possesses plenty of scope for improvement. Stablemate Blow By Blow merits respect but Le Richebourg is feared most.

Timeform Top Rated:
159x 8. UNDRESSED W. P. Mullins P. Townend
158 4. VELOCITY BOY W. P. Murphy Denis O'Regan
158§ 1. OUT SAM Gordon Elliott Davy Russell

Analyst's Verdict:
The vote goes to Velocity Boy, who was in the firing line when exiting at the second-last in the Cork National last month. He meets the winner of that marathon, Out Sam, on 8 lb better terms now and is completely unexposed as a staying chaser. Out Sam should again be on the premises if he puts his best foot forward but Fitzhenry, who remains open to improvement in this sphere, is next on the list.

175 9. APPLE'S JADE Gordon Elliott J. W. Kennedy
174 5. SUPASUNDAE Mrs J. Harrington Robbie Power
173 1. BAPAUME W. P. Mullins P. Townend

Analyst's Verdict:
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.

170p 11. WONDER LAISH Charles Byrnes Davy Russell
169p 4. OFF YOU GO Charles Byrnes L. P. Gilligan (7)
168 21. TORNADO WATCH Emmet Mullins Mr Conor Orr (7)

Analyst's Verdict:
There was much to like about the way Wonder Laish did the job at Navan 3 weeks ago and while he has a 17 lb higher mark to overcome in this stronger race, the 6-y-o could be equal to the task with the likelihood of even better to come. Off You Go beat the re-opposing Hearts Are Trumps with something to spare at Galway and is feared most. Blazer and Tornado Watch are others to consider.

112 9. SOLDIER AT WAR Gordon Elliott Ms Lisa O'Neill
111 7. PORT STANLEY Mrs J. Harrington Mr F. Maguire (3)
86 14. FUR ELISE Mrs D. A. Love Mr S. Cavanagh (7)

Analyst's Verdict:
An easy winner of a maiden point in February, Envoi Allen subsequently changed hands for £400,000 and is taken to make a successful start to his career under Rules. Stablemate Soldier At War is likely to offer stern resistance, while newcomers Stones And Roses and Diol Ker both merit close attention in the betting.
