Timeform pick out three bets from Navan on Saturday.

"...but he will have a good chance if bouncing back to the form of his Galway second."

Enter The Red - Navan 15:15

Enter The Red has posted solid placed efforts on four of his last five starts, including when a half-length second of 26 to Ducky Mallon at the Curragh last time, and he can notch a deserved success here. Aidan Howard's gelding shouldn't be troubled buy the drop back to five furlongs as he usually shows plenty of speed over a furlong further.

Placere - Navan 15:50

Placere has suggested a race of this nature is within her compass of late, asked to make up a lot of ground but finishing to good effect in any case when runner-up at the Curragh just seven days ago, and she shades the vote in a big field. The return to a mile and three-quarters will definitely suit Placere, too.

Dalton Highway - Navan 17:35

Dalton Highway wasn't seen to best effect under 7-lb claimer Michelle Walsh at the Curragh six days ago but he will have a good chance if bouncing back to the form of his Galway second. Dermot Weld's three-year-old Zoffany gelding cost 125,000 guineas as a yearling and remains unexposed after six starts.
