Loader’s Lucky 15 – Each-way multiple featuring four runners at Navan on Sunday
Racing expert, Chris Loader combines four of his tips into this huge each-way Lucky 15, covering big races on Troytown day at Navan on Sunday 24th November.
There’s a great card over the Irish Sea at Navan today and I fancy several horses to go well. Here is my EW Lucky15 where I’m hoping we can have some winners.
Sunday’s Lucky 15
1.00 Navan – Fury Road
(Davy Russell/Gordon Elliott)
This looks a fascinating affair with Gordon Elliot likely to have the winning hand. However I think Fury Road could be the answer receiving six pounds from his stablemate Abacadabras. I think our selection might have the stamina edge as he destroyed the field at Down Royal. The quotes from Elliot himself suggest he quietly fancies him and with Davy Russell booked he might able to his doubters why he should be the Gigginstown number one.
1.30 Navan – Encore Liu
(Mark Walsh/Elizabeth Doyle)
This JP McManus ran a fine handicap debut at Gowran Park on his last start showing he could well handicapped off a mark of 107. He’s just the kind of horse I could see getting on a roll and being one to potentially follow at the Christmas Festivals as he ran against horses a lot higher in the ratings. With Mark Walsh riding ever so well at a 34% strike rate in recent weeks I’m backing him to get the job done here.
2.30 Navan – Tower Bridge
(JJ Slevin/Joseph O’Brien)
I’ve been waiting for this race all week and I put it up as my NAP for the weekend on my podcast. He could be seriously well treated off a rating of 141 and has plenty of good form at higher levels. He finished fifth in the Albert Bartlett in 2018 and second in the Close Brothers at the Cheltenham Festival this year. He hasn’t run much over marathon trips but when he has he’s run very well. Joseph O’Brien has been quite bullish about his chances and I think tomorrow he will win this race.
3.00 Navan – Fit To Be Tied
(Simon Torrens/Niall Madden)
This appears to be a very competitive race on paper but I think Fit To Be Tied has a solid chance. He won well at Cork last time out on testing ground and going up in trip shouldn’t be a problem. Also Simon Torrens will be able to claim seven pounds and I think that will have a major advantage. Some of the main protagonists have questions marks regarding the ground and I just think our selection has to go close.
