Angus McNae's top tips for Sunday: Move for Mokhalad at Naas

There is some really good action on Racing TV on Sunday and I have four selections, all of whom you can see race live with us on the channel.

12.45 Carlisle: Faustinovick

This horse makes his hurdling debut and if he can translate his fast-time bumper performance at Newbury to this sphere he will take some beating.

In that Newbury race, when he was making his debut, he finished second to Mcfabulous, who went on to win a Grade Two bumper at Aintree.

That run was full of promise. The way he made headway smoothly into contention was eye-catching and it was no disgrace to finish second to a smart prospect.

He can win here and I suspect ultimately make up into a useful novice.

12.50 Naas: Mokhalad

I have backed myself into a corner a bit with this horse but I think he can run a big race here.

I put him forward as an eye-catcher on The Verdict recently because I thought he shaped really well last time out when finishing fourth at Navan.

He did best of those drawn low on a day when you had to be drawn high to have any chance.

Not only did he defy the draw in running so well he confirmed that he is finding his form again after some time in the doldrums.

He is well drawn here in stall 1 and at a double-figure price he certainly makes some appeal.

1.10 Huntingdon: Mickey Buckman

This gelding did not show much on debut at Fontwell but improved a good deal on his second start at Huntingdon.

That second start came off a long lay-off and he has clearly not been easy to train but under tender handling he finished his race off strongly to finish second to Glory And Fortune.

He finished with running left that day and can take another step forward here for the Gary Moore team.

1.25 Naas: Chiricahua

This Camelot colt was well backed on his debut and he ran well to be second to the useful Degrades.

He did particularly well given that he was forced wide and ran green when first asked for maximum effort.

That he was well backed on debut (13-8) suggests that he is quite highly thought of.

His pedigree points to the soft ground suiting him and he looks sure to improve on that debut effort. He will be hard to beat for the ever in form Ger Lyons team.
