Trainer James Coogan believes there is more to come from Theyturnedmedown when the in-form sprinter aims for a course-and-distance double at Navan. Coogan, who hails from Friarstown, in Co Kildare, said: “He’s in very good form and is well drawn in stall one, which helps at Navan. “He’s gone up a few pounds but Leigh (Roche) gets on really well with him – he’s won three times on the horse – and takes off another 3lb. “Everything has gone well with him since the last day and we hope there’s a bit more to come. “He won his first race this time last year off a mark of 49 and is now 82, so he’s clearly still progressing – like all good sprinters do.” Theyturnedmedown faces nine rivals in the 20,000 euro heat, including Regal Power, who returned from a long absence to take a decent prize at the Curragh on Sunday. Six Of Hearts chased home Coogan’s inmate on his penultimate start and renews rivalry. Coogan said: “Six Of Hearts would be the one I’m most concerned about. He finished strongly behind us last time and is the big danger.” The five-year-old gelding was a tidy half-length scorer at the Co Meath venue in May and returns for another go in the Follow Navan On Facebook Handicap over just shy of six furlongs. Theyturnedmedown is 6lb higher for this assignment, but connections of the son of Captain Rio remain optimistic of a solid display. Press Association
