Who To Follow At Navan On Sunday

Horse To Follow - Entoucas

Navan host an exceptional card of runners on Sunday to round off a great week of jumps racing and in the first race of the day we fancy Entoucas for trainer Joseph O'Brien.

The five year old is a second season novice that wasn't overly impressive in bumpers but on his seasonal debut finished a smart third behind Envoi Allen at Down Royal which sets the standard here.

The second that day was stablemate Front View that has since franked that form by winning next time out in a tough race and that gives Entoucas a big chance here.

Trainer To Follow - Gordon Elliott

Gordon Elliott looks an obvious man to follow with his exceptional yard but at Navan on Sunday he has two shrewd runners that we believe will be very tough to beat.

First is the unbeaten Abacadabras who came into the season with some smart bumper form, having finished fourth in the Champion Bumper and that form has already seen some nice boosts this season, with Envoi Allen winning on hurdle debut and the third, Thyme Hill, already a Grade 2 hurdle winner this season.

He ran out an easy five length winner on his hurdle debut and then backed that up over two miles at Navan last time out coming home an even easy winner than his first race.

He holds plenty of potential and if handling the extra half a mile he could give his trainer a huge headache for the Cheltenham festival.

The final runner is I'm A Game Changer who will be steered by dual Grand National winning jockey Davy Russell and he was on board him for his seasonal debut third over course and distance earlier in the month.

The gelding finished a smart third to leading players in this division Melon and Fakir D'oudairies and if running to the same standard should not be beat.

Jockey To Follow - Robbie Power

Robbie Power has been in exceptional form of late travelling between Ireland and Britain constantly riding plenty of winners and running at a 20.51%

He has some nice rides on Sunday with his obvious big chance being Abacadabras for Gordon Elliott who ran out an easy five length winner on his hurdle debut and then backed that up over two miles at Navan last time out coming home an even easy winner than his first race.

His other big runner on the day at his local track is the Henry De Bromhead trained Chris's Dream who is a course and distance winner at this track last season that proves he goes well fresh and is made for the Troytown Handicap.
