12:15 Shantreusse

A smart novice hurdler, SHANTREUSSE shaped promisingly behind Gerri Colombe on chasing debut at Fairyhouse and can improve enough to take care of business today. Aione has to be respected from an outstanding yard, while Fakiera won’t go down without a fight.

12:47 Follow The Crowd

Steadily progressive and consistent this season, FOLLOW THE CROWD is only 1lb higher than when third on testing ground at Galway last time and has a solid chance. Stumptown should appreciate this step-up in trip and is a danger, while Angels Dawn and Friendly Star are others to consider.

13:22 Calcio

This looks quite open for a maiden, though that could change should there be confidence behind French Flat winner Sinbad Le Marin. He is clearly respected, but perhaps CALICO can finally get off the mark after appearing to find some improvement at Aintree. Morning Soldier was ahead of the selection here last month but the softer ground this time might not be ideal for him. Sir Allen, Teagarden Jazz and Libby also enter the equation after their good runs in the same Cork race.

13:57 Run For Oscar

Some familiar faces line up, but for some of them, this looks a stepping stone to more pressing matters further down the line. RUN FOR OSCAR has no fitness issues and it was no backward step when beaten under a big weight at Haydock. Floueur looked a different horse in the blinkers at Clonmel and he’s feared most.

14:32 Captain Conby (NAP)

A good handicap that will take some winning. CAPTAIN CONBY (nap) is a strong traveller who was perhaps outstayed over 3m last time, and the form of that and his previous race was franked this week at Leopardstown. Riaan and San Salvador are on the shortlist after dominating a Cork handicap, along with impressive Galway winner Hgranca De Thaix.

Punchestown-Racecourse

15:07 Little Mixup

Not many of these can be seriously fancied, so the safest route is to row in behind LITTLE MIXUP, who won well at Limerick four days ago and can follow up if this doesn’t come too soon. Thefaithfulindian and Molly Kaye both disappointed in the same Thurles race last time but are capable of much better. Gold Haven and Caoimhes Pet are of interest.

15:42 Lady Bresil

Those with experience are vulnerable to the newcomers. Abi’s Champ is of obvious interest for Team Mullins and Baby Chou may also feature, but a chance is taken on LADY BRESIL. She has a nice pedigree and the stable has its share of success in these races.
