The staying hurdlers take centre stage at Punchestown on Thursday – with Flooring Porter the favourite to follow up his Cheltenham success.
Gavin Cromwell’s charge made all the running in last month’s Paddy Power Stayers’ Hurdle to leave the likes of Sire Du Berlais, Paisley Park and Fury Road in his wake.
Flooring Porter faces 14 rivals in today’s Grade 1 Champion Stayers Hurdle including Pertemps Network Final winner Mrs Milner and 2020 Cheltenham Festival runner-up Ronald Pump.
It’s the feature on day three of the Punchestown Festival 2021, with the Ryanair Novice Chase – featuring the return of Energumene from injury – being the other Grade 1 on the eight-race card.
