Timeform pick out three bets from Naas on Sunday...
"He looked far from the finished article that day and should have a bigger effort in him yet."
Sandsend ran well on his Irish debut on Boxing Day and is entitled to improve but at the prices Duca de Thaix makes more appeal, setting the standard here on his Grade 3 win over the Christmas period. He looked far from the finished article that day and should have a bigger effort in him yet.
Mick The Boyo isn't straightforward and the one to be with could be Champagne Pat, who didn't see out two and a quarter miles at Leopardstown last time and is better judged on his third at Navan prior to that, which was a career best. Tout Est Permis is another to consider in a hot little handicap.
The Informer has been hiked 10 lb in the weights for his win at Down Royal last time but he won in taking fashion and is expected to put in a bold bid to follow up here. He is still on a fair mark based on his form over the smaller obstacles and gets the vote over Thirsty Work and Next Bend in another competitive race.
