Angus McNae's Sunday selections: Expect Mor of the same

Our regular Sunday tipster has four selections for the action live on Racing TV from Naas, including the Ross O'Sullivan-trained An Fraoch Mor, ridden by Robbie Power.

2.10 Naas: Cadmium

Hardline will probably go off favourite here but he is inconsistent and I prefer the chances of Cadmium dropping back in trip. He won this race last year and palpably failed to stay three miles last time out. His trainer Willie Mullins is firing on all cylinders now and Cadmium has a decent-looking chance of going back to back here.

2.40 Naas: An Fraoch Mor

On the back of a stylish win at Navan last time out, this horse goes handicapping, but I think he has more to offer. That 11-length success was achieved in good style and I was particularly impressed with the way he jumped. This is clearly a tougher ask but this is only his third start over fences and he is open to plenty of improvement. At 11-2 at the time of writing, he looks a fair value bet to me.

All so easy for An Fraoch Mor last time. Will it be the same story today?

3.10 Naas: Mt Leinster

Andy Dufresne will go off a short-priced favourite here but he made hard work of winning last time out and it is worth taking him on with Mt Leinster. He was impressive when beating Entoucas by nine lengths two starts ago and that horse has won since. He was a fair third in a Grade One last time out where he was let down by his jumping. With a more polished round here he can upset the short-priced favourite.

4.40 Naas: Bythesametoken

At a tasty-looking 6-1, this horse represents decent value. He is very consistent and comes here in good heart. His last two runs in handicap company look very solid and this is not a strong race. He was arguably a little unlucky last time out where he was hampered a couple of times and his recent record is one of consistency and honesty.
