Timeform pick out three bets from Navan on Saturday.


Steamboat Quay - Navan 15:25

Steamboat Quay fared better than the bare result when sixth at Galway last time, still in contention for a place when making a hash of the last and likely to have finished much closer than the seven lengths he was beaten with a better jump. That still represented a career-best stepped up to a trip in excess of 2m for the first time and Steamboat Quay is fancied to confirm the promise of that effort and can get off the mark with a defeat of Downpatrick winner Teacher's Pet.

Phil's Magic - Navan 16:00

Phil's Magic has failed to reproduce his best form since finishing sixth in a competitive handicap at Punchestown in April and got no further than the fifth when falling on his most recent outing in the Kerry National at Listowel 10 days ago. Nevertheless, this represents a far weaker race than he has been contesting of late and - 4 lb clear of his nearest rival on ratings - Phil's Magic is expected to bounce back and can open his account over fences at the ninth time of asking here.

Realt Mor - Navan 16:35

Realt Mor shaped as if still in good form and was just beginning to creep into things when his jumping issues once again resurfaced in the Kerry National at Listowel 10 days ago. He took a crashing fall at the twelfth fence that day, but remains one to keep onside in his current mood and - 1 lb clear of his nearest rival on Timeform ratings - Realt Mor is expected to prove too classy with a clear round of jumping and can see off the attentions of the consistent Na Trachtalia Abu here.
