Timeform pick out three bets from Navan on Saturday.


"He is clearly held in high regard by connections (still entered in next Saturday's Derby)..."

Seeyouallincoppers - Navan 15:40

Seeyouallincoppers has established himself as a fairly useful hurdler since his last outing in this sphere over 22 months ago and registered his second success over obstacles with a career-best effort at Punchestown earlier this month. He would perhaps appreciate a stiffer test of stamina than he encounters here, but that Punchestown display suggests Seeyouallincoppers could potentially be very well-handicapped back on the Flat and he can take advantage of a lenient mark with a defeat of the recent C&D winner Next Bend.

Lord Justice - Navan 16:50

Lord Justice travelled like the winner on his recent handicap debut at Roscommon and, although he ultimately had to settle for second behind the reopposing Full Court Press, that effort still represented a significant improvement on the form he had shown in three starts as a two-year-old. He appeared to relish the step up to 1¼m for the first time that day and - entitled to improve for that first outing in over six months - Lord Justice is fancied to see off the attentions of his Roscommon conqueror on these revised terms.

Lustrous Light - Navan 17:55

Lustrous Light showed his inexperience when failing to justify favouritism on his recent racecourse debut at this venue, but he is entitled to improve with that initial outing under his belt and the way he kept on in the closing stages was encouraging with this longer trip in mind. He is clearly held in high regard by connections (still entered in next Saturday's Derby) and - a half-brother to the smart Alfred Nobel - Lustrous Light is expected to open his account at the second time of asking with a defeat of Cockatoo Island.
