Ray Flanagan with Naas selections
thought for the day: I am enjoying learning the Spanish. “Ola Bonita” means hello pretty
Naas 2.00-Ola Bonita
Has not displayed as much strictly on the formbook as her two main market rivals which sees her third in the betting. I was very impressed with her recent Navan debut where she showed terrific sectional speed between the final two furlongs to eventually finish fourth having blown the start. Form has been boosted by the re-opposing third placed horse and also the winner who both performed well in listed grade last Saturday.
I think she can improve past the Bolger filly Na Blianta Beo and also the other main contender Johnny Murtagh’s Pronouncement.
Naas 3.00- Munfullet
Couple of nice efforts on turf last season and solid winter campaign on all weather. Shaped as if needing the run when drawn wide at Leopardstown on recent return and I expect a big improvement here.
