Regal Power made a successful return to action last weekend and is turned out quickly for the Follow Navan On Facebook Handicap.

Eddie Lynam's Curragh winner doesn't have many miles on the clock so may have enough scope to defy a 10lb higher mark, although this is the toughest test of his career so far.

Theyturnedmedown arrives on the back of a victory, too, but is 5lb worse off with runner-up Six Of Hearts, while Strait Of Zanzibar has his sights lowered after contesting a Naas Listed contest, and Lightnin Hopkins was only just denied in a blanket finish at the same track last time.

Lynam will also have high hopes for More Questions, even though he has been bumped up 11lb for the Navan Members Handicap as a consequence of last week's facile course triumph.

Candy Apples made a cracking debut behind the well-regarded Michaelmas and strives to go one better in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Median Auction Race.

Patrick Prendergast's filly has another Ballydoyle youngster standing in her way, this time in the form of Wilshere Boulevard, who was touched off on his second appearance at this venue.

His trainer Aidan O'Brien has chosen the opening Lynn Lodge Stud Maiden (5.20) as the returning point for Great Explorer, but he has ground to make up on Manhattan Swing from their meeting here last autumn, although the standard is set by the Jim Bolger-trained Morga, who tackled Listed company before a fourth behind the useful Hanky Panky at Naas.

Bolger saddles Tiger At Heart in the Live Music After Racing Apprentice Handicap just eight days after he broke his duck at Tipperary, and Noel Meade has only given Rock N Rover a few days more rest since his Tramore second, but the form is working out and he drops in trip for the www.navangolfclub.ie Handicap.
