Horse Racing tips: The best bets for EVERY race at Punchestown today

The Racing Post’s tipster has found eight great picks for you.

Comments

13:15 Red Gerry

Kendancer isn’t short of ability but is difficult to get a handle on after his mishap last time.

RED GERRY also has questions to answer, but there’s more of a chance he’ll sharpen up for his return to hurdles last time and he gets a tentative vote in an open race that is ripe for one of these four-year-olds to up their level of form.

Land Jet is an obvious contender to take a step forward and is feared.

 

13:45 Bon Retour

The top two on the card both drop in trip here, the most likely to benefit being BON RETOUR, who seemed to be found out on soft ground at Bellewstown. The selection’s earlier Galway handicap win on this sort of ground reads well and she looks the one to beat.

Her chief rival could turn out to be stablemate Getaway Gorgeous, although she needs to jump slicker than at Galway last time.

14:15 Whereyounow

Elegant Lass tries a much more galloping track than she has been thriving on of late and could prove vulnerable over this longer trip after a 6lb rise for her Tramore success.

Preference is for WHEREYOUNOW, following a good comeback run at Cork over this sort of trip, especially if he avoids any serious jumping errors.

Not too many others appeal, though In A Pinch runs well fresh and has her ground on returning from an absence here so has to be respected.

14:45 Twilight Girl

Several of these come here in fine form and with strong chances, including Luis Van Zandt, Dawson’s Cottage and Arthur’s Baby, but perhaps TWILIGHT GIRL can follow up her recent Wexford defeat of Comporta off a 7lb higher mark.

15:20 Bourbon Borderline

An ordinary enough maiden hurdle for the venue. BOURBON BORDERLINE (NAP) has the best form on offer and with the promise of more to come now upped in trip gets the vote.

Desert Island, Dancing Jeremy and Get Rich Die Plyin could prove the dangers.

15:50 William Of Wykeham

A competitive handicap in which WILLIAM OF WYKEHAM may be able to resume winning ways, despite a 4lb rise for his recent Killarney second.

Mister Fogpatches rates a big threat on current form, though he will need to jump better than at Bellewstown,.

Meanwhile, it will be intriguing to see how top-weight Treacysenniscorthy fares on his return to action after such a brilliant campaign last season.

16:20 Glan

There are no shortage of intriguing newcomers and the market could prove informative.

Gordon Elliott and Jamie Codd won this race last year with the useful Larquebuse and can hit the target again with GLAN, who impressed at Kilbeggan in an ordinary race last month.

Too Falutin looked an improved performer at Ballinrobe last time and should be a major danger if reproducing that sort of effort again, while Highstreet Roller hasn’t been seen since New Year’s Eve but looked a promising sort when winning here on that occasion.

16:50 Small Bad Bob

A fair degree of guesswork here, with nine of the 15 runners yet to have a start under rules, including interesting newcomers Ballymoney and Ardla.

However, a token vote goes to SMALL BAD BOB, who arrives here with his fitness assured and shaped promisingly over hurdles last time. Any market confidence behind Summer Tide would be interesting.
