Timeform pick out three bets from Navan on Sunday.

Timeform on Sioux Nation

SIOUX NATION - Navan 14:40

Aidan O'Brien holds a strong hand and it looks significant that Ryan Moore is on board SIOUX NATION rather than stablemates Fleet Review and Different League (expensive new recruit). Sioux Nation won the Norfolk Stakes and Phoenix Stakes last season and wasn't seen to best effect when sixth in the Middle Park on his final start.

BYE BYE BABY - Navan 16:15

BYE BYE BABY progressed well as a juvenile and is bred to do even better as a 3-y-o up in trip. She ran well in defeat at Leopardstown on her final start last term and is expected to improve past Baroness and Sizzling. Mary Tudor is also considered (good chance on Timeform weight-adjusted ratings).

MEAGHER'S FLAG - Navan 16:50

MEAGHER'S FLAG ended 2017 on a low note but showed promise when runner-up on his first two outings and is taken to bounce back now handicapping after a winter break with cheekpieces added. He is also up in trip which should suit (closely related to 9.4f-1½m winner New Direction). Night of Power is open to improvement on the back of his Dundalk maiden win last autumn and may provide the main threat ahead of recent C&D runner-up Shes Queen.
