Timeform pick out three bets from Navan on Sunday.


Doonard Prince - 14:45 Navan

The Ross O'Sullivan-trained DOONARD PRINCE - winner of two races at the Curragh - was progressing nicely towards the end of the season and returned with an encouraging fourth trying to come from too far back at Dundalk recently. He looks set to get back on the up with blinkers reapplied in a race that won't take much winning despite the numbers. Feeling Easy has a chance based on 2016 form and Intensely Focussed is unexposed.

Queen Anne's Lace - 15:55 Navan

The Dermot Weld-trained QUEEN ANNE'S LACE, a winner at Gowran Park last season, offered hope of more to come as she went through the race at Naas on her return and could upset the Ballydoyle battalion, led by Pocketfullofdreams, though Bengala is of big interest for John Oxx after her Leopardstown victory from Aurora Butterfly.

Order of St George - 16:25 Navan

Aidan O'Brien has won two of the last three renewals and he can add another win with Gold Cup winner ORDER OF ST GEORGE who should prove too classy for his rivals despite conceding weight all round. The main threat may come from Torcedor, who was impressive on his return and is unexposed as a stayer.
