Gordon Elliott sends a number of runners to Navan, including a pair of horses in the feature Irish Stallion Farms EBF Klairon Davis Novice Chase.

Lord Scoundrel has to give weight to his rivals after landing a hat-trick over fences before finding Sizing John too strong last time, while stablemate Shadow Catcher took on some more experienced rivals at Down Royal and fared well.

Add in a pair of impressive last-time-out winners in Ttebbob and Velvet Maker and it should prove an informative contest.

Elliott saddles no fewer than eight runners in the opening Kells Maiden Hurdle at 12.05pm, with Ball D'Arc arguably the pick of the octet.

He faces stiff opposition from the likes of Bello Conti, who makes his debut for Willie Mullins, and Exactoris, who has already won a pair of bumpers for Aidan O'Brien.

Elliott is represented by Whistle Dixie in the Dunmoe Mares Maiden Hurdle, and looks to have another Mullins-trained runner to overcome in Asthuria.

There will be plenty of eyes on Black Hercules in the Drogheda Beginners Chase as the classy bumper runner and hurdler embarks on the first step of his chasing career.

Mullins' six-year-old struggled when sent off favourite for the Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham but has plenty of class and could be tough to beat, though All Hell Let Loose has already shown an aptitude for chasing and will be a challenger, while Elliott runs Georges Conn, who doesn't lack experience.

It looks like Mullins versus Elliott again in the 2016 Navan Race Membership Club On Sale Flat Race, with Punchestown flop Avenir D'Une Vie attempting to atone for the champion trainer, up against Elliott's Delegate, who has been running creditably over timber of late.

Ibetellingyoualie and Black Zero, second and third at Gowran recently, top the weights for the Dean Hill Handicap Chase.
