Compass Hill - Navan 15:00

Compass Hill shaped encouragingly when second on his most recent outing at Limerick, travelling strongly in the leaders' slipstream throughout, and keeping on well to be beaten just a head. That form leaves him 2 lb clear of the field on Timeform ratings here and, while the drop back to the minimum trip is a slight concern, Compass Hill certainly looks on a good mark, and is fancied to resume winning ways for the John Joseph Murphy yard. Nora Batt and the hat-trick seeking Landline are feared most of the remainder.

Tashman - Navan 15:35

Tashman resumed his progress with a fair six lengths second to Whirling Dervish at Tipperary three weeks ago, and proved his ability to handle testing conditions in the process. With the prospect of more to come in first-time blinkers here, Dermot Weld's charge rates the clear one to beat and is taken to get off the mark at the fourth time of asking. Viscount Wilson and the newcomer Escapability, who represents the in-form Mick Halford yard (two winners from his last five runners), head the list of dangers.

Bigger And Better - Navan 16:10

Bigger And Better showed plenty on his first start since leaving Richard Hannon over C&D earlier this month, finishing a never nearer second having been forced to pick his way through runners in the closing stages. The four-year-old has a 3 lb rise in the weights to contend with here, but is entitled to improve with that first outing for 12 months under his belt, and should prove a tough nut to crack despite his big weight. Aunty Audrey and Musical Jewel looks next best following their 1-2 at Cork 11 days ago.
