The ground at Navan ahead of its big meeting on Sunday, is currently heavy.

Feature race on the card is the €70,000 Grade 1 Navan Novice Hurdle in which Gigginstown House Stud own four of the ten entries, including likely favourite and hugely talented Don Cossack.

The first and last races are both Grade 2 races, the Tara Hurdle and the Future Champions Bumper, on a quality card.

There is not much attention given to national hunt racing in the summer months, by punters or by the media. It is, of course, understandable given that our attention is focused on the flat season: the action at Royal Ascot, the Classics and the rest of the elements that define the summer racing season. Some punters might have a dabble at an ante post bet for Cheltenham next year, but by and large we forget about it until the autumn.
