Punchestown Festival 2023 racecard, tips and results – day 2 ultimate guide

Giddy up for day two!

Galopin Des Champs wins the Gold Cup at Cheltenham


The core Jumps season in Ireland concludes with the Punchestown Festival 2023 – and you’ve come to the right place for all your needs on the second day of the mega meet.

Galopin Des Champs is the star of the show as the Cheltenham Gold Cup hero bids to add the Punchestown equivalent to his CV, but Bravemansgame crosses the Irish Sea to renew rivalries from last month’s thriller after ownership issues were resolved.

Gaelic Warrior will bid to land a maiden Grade 1 in the Irish Mirror Novice Hurdle while Closutton stablemates have their work cut out to inflict a first defeat on Champion Bumper winner A Dream To Share in the Race & Stay At Punchestown Champion I.N.H. Flat Race.

Royal Rendezvous will bid to retain the Grade A HSS Hire Handicap Chase and the big betting race of the day is the opener, the Adare Manor Opportunity Series Final Handicap Hurdle, which will see 25 horses go to post.

Uncle Paddy’s put enough coins in the meter to live stream every race at the Punchestown Festival on the Paddy Power and Paddy Power app, where you will also find the latest Punchestown odds.
