There is Jumps racing from Navan on Sunday

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Navan on Sunday...

"...he looks more than capable of defying this sort of mark."

Timeform on Hearts Are Trumps

Hearts Are Trumps - Navan 14:35

Hearts Are Trumps took another big step forward when runner-up at Ballinrobe last month, keeping on well and nearest at the finish, and he looks more than capable of defying this sort of mark. There are plenty of dangers however, chief among them Misty Millie and Cappacon. Grand Canyon won at Ballinrobe on Friday and would be of obvious interest if turned out again.

Glamorous Gold - Navan 15:10

Glamorous Gold made an encouraging start in handicaps when third at Wexford a couple of weeks ago and could be the answer in a tricky race with further progress on the cards. Se Mo Laoch rates an obvious danger on the back of his breakthrough success at Kilbeggan earlier this month, while a market move for Gordon Elliott handicap newcomer Isle of Destiny would bring her firmly into the reckoning.

Optical Confusion - Navan 15:40

Optical Confusion probably didn't beat a great deal at Down Royal, but he did it nicely, in control despite blundering at the final flight. He is worth a shot at this. Fred Winter winner Veneer of Charm is feared along with High Nellie and Madison To Monroe.
