Timeform bring you three tips from Naas on Sunday, which features two Grade 2s.

"It could be a good day for J. P. McManus given all three SmartPlays are owned by him, with White Arm completing the trio."

Uaintseenothingyet - Naas 14:20

Five-year-old Uaintseenothingyet has improved with each start over hurdles so far, bettering his well-held debut behind Nambour when third to Hurry Henry over C&D (the now useful Fairly Legal in second) and then winning a big-field maiden over two and a half miles at Fairyhouse from Space Cadet (next-time-out winner Burgas in third). Uaintseenothingyet must shoulder top weight here, but he could have been let into handicaps lightly off a mark of 123 and isn't expected to be hindered by the drop back to the minimum trip (raced prominently for his win).

Marlbrook - Naas 14:55

Marlbrook suggested he is beginning to get the hang of things when scoring at Fairyhouse last month, and, representing the Colm Murphy yard that took this race with Empire of Dirt 12 months ago, gets the nod to continue on his upward curve. Marlbrook is still lightly raced for an eight-year-old with seven starts behind him, and he's seemingly long been well regarded, with his successful hurdling debut (odds on) back in 2013 for Enda Bolger promising better than he's been able to deliver so far.

White Arm - Naas 16:35

It could be a good day for J. P. McManus given all three SmartPlays are owned by him, with White Arm completing the trio. The Tony Martin-trained White Arm has got his act together of late, finishing a close third to Witness of Fashion at Fairyhouse before opening his chasing account with something to spare in this headgear (cheekpieces) at Navan in January, overcoming a mistake at the final fence. He may have even more to offer and can prove too strong for the hat-trick-seeking Sunsetstorise.
