Navan betting tips: Peter O'Hehir's selections for Wednesday's horse racing action
Eddie Lynam could be a trainer to follow at Navan this afternoon where he has good prospects of notching a double. A big field goes to post for the 45-65 rated sprint handicap but punters should look no further than the Lynam-trained Tide Of Time. This four-year-old didn’t show much on his first few starts
Eddie Lynam could be a trainer to follow at Navan this afternoon where he has good prospects of notching a double.
A big field goes to post for the 45-65 rated sprint handicap but punters should look no further than the Lynam-trained Tide Of Time.
This four-year-old didn’t show much on his first few starts but it was all change over this course and distance 10 days ago when he easily defeated a large field.
An 11lb rise in the weights for that triumph is unlikely to stop Shane Foley’s mount who should be able to progress again.
In the older horses sprint maiden Lynam supplies two runners with Dapper Power, caught the eye after an encouraging debut effort at this track last month.
On that occasion the Dandy Man gelding was beaten just over four lengths into seventh by stablemate Hot Stone.
That run leaves him with ground to make up on several of today’s rivals, but he did shape up nicely in the closing stages of that race and should improve a good deal for that first run.
Aidan O’Brien’s red hot run of form should continue into the opening maiden where he saddles the market leaders Western Frontier and Captainofthebounty.
The trainer’s son, Donnacha, partners Captainofthebounty but preference is for his stablemate who has run two nice races in defeat at this track.
Western Frontier was no match for Third Of March earlier this month but it is unlikely he will meet anything of that one’s calibre, so a similar display this time may well be good enough.
Gavin Cromwell is another trainer who has his team in excellent order and he can strike with Fuwairt in the six runner sprint handicap.
The gelding has taken time to find his form since joining Cromwell but he comes here in good heart and he won at Cork on his penultimate outing.
Fuwairt has done much of his racing over longer trips but has shown up well over six furlongs in recent weeks, so he should have no difficulty with today’s distance.
A tremendous season for Johnny Murtagh, inset, has featured a host of nursery victories for the trainer and he can land another race in this sphere with Dancing Mountain.
After winning at Naas last month she has met with two defeats but the return to five furlongs should work in this filly’s favour.
Elsewhere, Jack Peter could be the answer in the concluding handicap while the Listowel bumper winner Scaglietti is hard to oppose in the one mile five furlong maiden.
1.35. Western Frontier
2.05. Dancing Mountain
2.40. Dash D’or
3.15. Fuwairt (nap)
3.50. Dapper Power
4.25. Tide of Time
5.35. Jack Peter
Double: Fuwairt and Tide of Time
