12:35 - Abacadabras

This Grade Three hurdle has seen six declared over the 2 mile trip and Gordon Elliott's Abacadabras should take all the beating here.

He 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 should take this in his stride being a much stronger horse for his debut outing.

13:05 - Apple's Jade

This Grade 2 over 2 and half miles sees some classy sorts return to action and Apple's Jade may just have too much class for the rest of the field.

She has won this race for the last two years and was emphatic for the first part of last season, destroying fields in races ranging from 2 miles to 3 miles.

She struggled towards the back end of last season, easily beaten in the Champion Hurdle and at Punchestown and was a credible third in the Liverpool Hurdle but this is her time of year and her class should see through.

13:35 - Andy Dufresne

An exciting maiden hurdle sees 19 go to post over 2 and a half miles and we think Gordon Elliott will continue to be amongst the winners with Andy Dufresne.

After winning his point in 2018, he bolted up by 10 lengths in a Down Royal bumper in January and looked an exciting prospect.

He unfortunately missed the rest of the season, meaning we didn't see him at any of the spring festivals but if his debut is anything to go from, the son of Doyen is really one to look forward to this season and make a winning return here.

14:10 - A Plus Tard

An exciting Grade 2 chase over 2 miles that sees the return of Cheltenham Festival winners Duc Des Genievres and A Plus Tard and we fancy Henry De Bromhead's gelding to make a winning start to the season.

He went off a well backed 5/1 favourite for the Close Brothers Handicap at the Festival and there was never really a moment's doubt for his backers as he bolted up by 16 lengths, looking very smart.

He was upped to Grade One company at the Punchestown Festival where he was third to Delta Work but back to calmer waters and stepping down to, two miles maybe just what he needs to get back to winning ways.

15:15 - Fakir D'oudairies

13 are entered for what looks a good novice chase over 2 miles and we like the look of Joseph O'Briens Fakir D'oudairies.

He shot onto the scene when an empathic 13 length winner of the Triumph Hurdle trial on Trials day in January but was sent to the Supreme instead, where he ran a very respectable fourth.

He then ran credible races at Aintree, where he was second to Triumph winner Pentland Hills and at Punchestown, where he was second to the exciting Fusil Raffles and can make a winning chase debut.

15:50 - Energumene

The final race of the day at Navan on Sunday sees a bumper and the return of a horse we have followed since his injury last season with the Willie Mullins trained Energumene.

This horse was highly thought of last season off the back of her only run in a point to point when bolting up and being sold for €50,000 and joining Mullins' yard.

After picking up an injury last season he did not run at all but he shows all the signs that if he lives up to his potential he could be one for the Champion Bumper.
