The Flat season kicks off in Ireland on Monday.
The Flat season kicks off in Ireland on Monday.

It's the start of the Flat season this afternoon at Naas, and Steve Chambers takes you through the card with tips in all seven races...

14:00 Naas

An intriguing maiden to kick off the afternoon and market moves for any of the eight runners will prove significant, but it's the Aidan O'Brien-trained Lipizzaner that heads the betting. However, Jim Bolger's second favourite Poetic Flare could be the one to be with against the Ballydoyle hotpot, as the son of Dawn Approach has the makings of being an exciting talent. Closely related to a Listed winner, Poetic Flare is aiming to following in his sire's hoofprints by claiming victory in this contest, and with Bolger having a fine record in the race then he is the one to be with.

14:30 Naas

Fourth on his debut, Knight Of Malta is open to significant improvement this season, and the son of former Oaks heroine Was can break his duck on Monday by claiming victory in the 14:30 at Naas. He showed promise when fourth at Naas on debut and a return to that track this afternoon can see him shine bright.

15:00 Naas

A competitive-looking handicap sees a field of 14 going to post in the 15:00 at Naas. The Jim Bolger-trained Titanium Sky may only have one victory on her CV, but following on from some disappointing performances on the track she has slipped down to an attractive mark of 92. Last seen finishing a fine fourth in a Listed event at Dundalk, the four-year-old can benefit from a drop into handicap company and she can land the prize at a decent price.

15:30 Naas

Another tough handicap assignment for punters to work out, but it's Real Appeal that catches the eye at double-figured odds, and is the each-way selection in the 15:30 race. Jim Bolger's charge was victorious in his first three career starts, but has since struggled to continue his progression. However, having been gelded, and stepping up in trip this afternoon then he could well bounce back to form and at least the make the frame.

16:00 Naas

Sent off favourite for the Investec Derby at Epsom last season, Sir Dragonet is by far the most exciting horse running at Naas on Monday, and the Aidan O'Brien-trained star is entitled to be an odds-on favourite for the 16:00 contest. Fifth in the Derby, Sir Dragonet then went on to finish fourth in the St Leger at Doncaster on his last start, and if he can replicate that display today over 1m 2f then has to be the one to be with in the Listed Devoy Stakes.

16:30 Naas

Even So won on his second start at Gowran Park and the Ger Lyons-trained raider, who holds some notable Classic entries, can outclass his rivals in the penultimate race on Monday afternoon. Easing clear by over three lengths on his last start, Even So is rightly an odds-on favourite to land today's prize, and it's hard to look elsewhere in this contest, and he looks to be the most solid punting option of the day.

17:00 Naas

The Aidan O'Brien-trained Russian Emperor is a clear favourite for the final race of the day, but it could be worth veering away from the Ballydoyle jolly and take a chance with the Jessica Harrington-trained Lobo Rojo. Hovering around the 10/1 mark at the time of writing, this newcomer is related to a host of winners, and with the trainer more than capable of getting them ready first time out then this Lope De Vega colt can at least make the frame.
