Joseph O'Brien has three runners at Navan on Saturday and he believes he has a leading chance in the Grade 3 Novice Chase on the card...
"She looks to have a leading chance on form and coming back to two miles shouldn't be an issue for her. We'll be hopeful that she can go very close."
- Joseph O'Brien on Scarlet And Dove
Drop in trip should help
14:13 - Cathmart Desjy
Cathmart Desjy showed some promise in bumpers, but disappointed us on her hurdling debut last time. Dropping back to this shorter trip will be a help to her and hopefully she can get her season back on track with a better run.
Scarlet has a leading chance while Sempo has the ability to be competitive
15:58 - Scarlet And Dove and Sempo
Scarlet And Dove has made a good transition to chasing this season, winning at Limerick and in the process of running a big race against Colreevy in a Grade 2 mares novice chase at Thurles only to fall at the second last. She looks to have a leading chance on form and coming back to two miles shouldn't be an issue for her. We'll be hopeful that she can go very close.
Sempo has been a bit of a work in progress over fences, but it was great to see him put in a clean round of jumping on his latest start at Punchestown. He'll probably need to jump even more sharply to fulfil his potential over fences, so that will be a focus point for him in this. He has the ability to be very competitive in this company if his jumping holds up.
