SALVADOR TO SALVAGE WEEKEND FOR TEAM O’BRIEN: After a poor run from Declaration of War in the Lockinge, the O’Brien trained El Salvador can star today at Navan.
It was a disappointing effort from favourite Declaration Of War at Newbury yesterday.
The only excuse seemingly being offered was that Joseph O’Brien reported after the race that he had become upset in the stalls.
Feature race on a good card at Navan today is the Listed Vintage Crop Stakes in which El Salvador can continue his winning run as he steps up in trip.
The penny seems to have really clicked this season and he has won twice at Dundalk and then last time out at Limerick on heavy ground which Aidan O’Brien described afterwards as ‘far from ideal’.
On better ground today he is very much the one to beat here.
It’s very rare that I nap a debutant but in the opener I’m looking for reasons to be against both True Verdict and Wexford Opera who are closely matched on recent form but are both long term maidens who are readily opposable.
The Dermot Weld trained Bernstein filly, Acting Talent, has already attracted some interest from the BETDAQ early birds on Sunday and I’ll take a chance on her being good enough.
Roscommon’s evening meeting tomorrow has been given the go-ahead after an inspection on Sunday.
NAP: Acting Talent (2.15 Navan)
NEXT BEST: El Salvador (4.15 Navan)
