McCreery duo target Navan glory
Willie McCreery has high hopes for his two runners in the Irish Stallion Farms EBF Median Auction Maiden at Navan on Friday.
The County Kildare handler expects Devonshire and Trust Your Opinion to be in the shake-up in the six-furlong contest.
Both have shown promise, with Devonshire runner-up on her second start at Naas last month and Trust Your Opinion a respectable fifth on her second outing at Tipperary two weeks ago.
"We'd be hoping for a good run from Devonshire. Horses by Fast Company seem to like good ground so it should suit her and I think she'll improve for her last run," McCreery said.
"Trust Your Opinion probably needs a bit further. She's a good tough filly and I'll be expecting a big run from her as well."
Wayne Lordan takes the ride on Devonshire, with Seamie Heffernan booked for Trust Your Opinion, in an 11-runner field in which David Wachman saddles Fit For The Job and Dermot Weld is represented by Sir Raston.
Fit For The Job is attempting to confirm the promise of his introductory effort.
Owned by JP McManus, the David Wachman-trained Lawman gelding, who cost 82,000 guineas as a yearling, showed up for a long way at the Curragh and stuck on well to claim third, looking a certain future winner in the process.
