Timeform pick out three bets from Naas on Sunday.
"...he's 13 lb lower compared to this time last year..."
Castletownshend - 14:30 Naas
Several likely improvers on show in this maiden and Castletownshend could be the pick of them. He shaped like a ready-made future winner when just touched off over C&D on debut in October. Daliyah will be a big threat if at least matching the pick of her two-year-old form, as will Hence if coping with the drop back in trip. However, Redhawk makes plenty of appeal on paper and may be the main danger.
Sors - 15:05 Naas
The handicapper has given Sors a real chance - he's 13 lb lower compared to this time last year - and Andrew Slattery's charge gets the nod in this open-looking contest. Gymkhana goes well fresh and should make a bold bid in defence of his crown, while Son of Rest, representing the yard responsible for 3 of the last 7 winners of this race, is also high on the shortlist.
Pincheck - 16:50 Naas
The votes goes to Pincheck, who made good strides in 2017, is 2-2 over this C&D and acquitted himself well in listed company when last seen in October. There could be more to come from the son of Invincible Spirit as a 4-y-o. Runner-up in the last 3 renewals of this race, Aussie Valentine should be in the thick of things once again, while Sorelle Delle Rose and Lucky Mistake also merit respect.
