Winner of a Listowel bumper almost two years ago, the seven-year-old has finished in the frame in each of his four starts over hurdles, including a second to Lean And Keen over this course and distance last August.
Admittedly, he flopped when odds-on in his last attempt over hurdles, when a well-beaten fourth behind Patsio in Tipperary, an effort which was probably too bad to be true.
But he looked back to his best when winning a flat maiden at Ballinrobe last time, coming from off the pace to beat Cillian’s Return convincingly.
Arguably at his best going right-handed, Theos Well should triumph for Mick Winters and Jonathan Burke.
Winner of the Ladbroke at Ascot back in December, the 151-rated Bayan sets the standard in the Family Day Out August 3rd. Hurdle, although his most recent defeat behind Rawnaq in Down Royal is a slight concern.
New Kid In Town, winner of a Roscommon bumoer a year ago and fifth to My Manekineko on his hurdling bow at Limerick last month, appeals in the opening maiden hurdle.
Meanwhile, Hasanour, raised a massive 17lb. for two premier handicap wins at the Curragh might be capable of defying the handicapper again in the €100,000 Nasrullah Handicap in Navan.
Michael Halford’s charge looks progressive and a potential stakes performer. He might prove that point by completing a handicap hat-trick here.
Earlier on the Navan card, Patrick Prendergast’s Lady Allegra, green on her debut at Fairyhouse on Sunday when a closing second to Fit For Function, might go one better in the two-year-old median auction maiden.
