Russell’s Mount The Pick Of Navan Card

Maiden hurdles at this time of year rarely set the world alight and the second race at Navan is no different. (2.55 Saturday)

But Adrian Keatley’s representative Thebarrowman definitely looks to be above average and on what we’ve seen of him in public so far in his career, he should be up to winning this race.

Thebarrowman was in Cheltenham for the select sale after racing on the Thursday but returns to run for Keatley here and…

the Kildare handler has booked Davy Russell for the point-to-point and bumper winner.

He’s a six-year-old who will probably embark on a novice chase campaign next season and could do so with a decent future ahead of him so he would be the pick of the entire Navan card.
