Horses at the finish
There is Flat racing from Naas on Sunday

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

"...he looks the one to beat judged on his victory in a valuable Galway handicap during the summer..."

Timeform on Riven Light

SONG OF NAMIBIA - Naas 14:30

SONG OF NAMIBIA has been operating some way below his best this year, but is now 13 lb below his last winning mark and is worth chancing in this open-looking handicap. Art of America needs more in order to complete the hat-trick off this mark and bigger threats may be posed by Canary Row and Vocal Music, who were first and second respectively at Galway on Monday.


The progressive PERFECT TAPATINO lost no caste in defeat when foiled in his hat-trick bid at Leopardstown recently, and he could be the answer with this stiffer test likely to play to his strengths. Exchange Rate was behind a few of these over 2m at Navan last month, but will probably be more at home back at this trip and is next best ahead of stablemates Uradel and Limini.

RIVEN LIGHT - Naas 16:05

A line can be drawn through RIVEN LIGHT's latest effort in Korea (clearly didn't act on dirt) and he looks the one to beat judged on his victory in a valuable Galway handicap during the summer. Mustajeer was a fine fourth in the Ebor last time and is likely to pose a threat, while Romiyna could also have a part to play if responding well to first-time blinkers.
