14:20 Navan

The Michael Grassick trained Elanora (best priced at 3/1) is 0-10 in her career but looks to have been a good opportunity to get off the mark. The three-year-old finished 2nd at Naas as two-year-old over 6f before finishing 2nd again at the same course over 7f earlier this season when chasing home an Aidan O’Brien trained odds on favourite. 

Elanora finished 3rd last time at Cork over 7f but interestingly now drops down to 5f for the first time with the application of first-time blinkers. According to RPRs she ran a career best last time in first time cheekpieces but weakened late on into 3rd shaping like this drop in trip will suit her well. She is joint top-rated in this maiden with a rating of 73 and I expect her to prove hard to beat with Billy Lee retaining the ride. 

Elanora - 1pt @ 3/1

15:30 Navan

The Ger Lyons trained Team Of Firsts (best priced at 7/2) won over this course and distance on his reappearance by 3 ½ lengths and should now run well back at the track in a handicap. The three-year-old returned from a 148 day break to finish 5th at Naas on his handicap debut off a mark of 90 shaping like he badly needed the run. 

Connections have gelded the son of Zoffany since his last run and the handicapper has also dropped him 2lb down to a mark of 88. This looks a competitive three-year-old handicap but Team Of Firsts is one of the least exposed in the field and he should prove hard to beat. 

Team Of Firsts - 1pt @ 7/2

15:50 Newmarket

This looks a competitive fillies’ handicap but preference goes to course specialist Madame Tantzy (best priced at 9/1). The Eve Johnson Houghton trained five-year-old has form figures of 2141 at the Newmarket courses including two course and distance successes on the Rowley Mile. She comes into this race chasing a hat-trick having won at both Goodwood and over this course and distance on her previous two starts which have both come under Georgia Dobie since the application of blinkers. 

Madame Tantzy has been raised 4lb by the handicapper up to a mark of 80 but she looks progressive since the application of blinkers and should run well with up to four places on offer. 

Madame Tantzy - 0.5pts e/w @ 9/1
