Punchestown Day 3

We were unlucky to hit the crossbar yesterday and we didn’t manage to get on the score sheet but today is a new day and we start off with MEDIA NARANJA, UNDENIABLE ALIBI and TIMELESS PIECE. Undeniable Alibi will like the ground today and has been in ready good form and off a nice mark here with Jack Kennedy booked to ride. Media Naranja is doing well at home and should be on point for this with Danny Gilligan booked to ride and claiming 5lbs. Timeless Piece will like the ground here and comes here fresh with Carl Millar claiming 7lbs.

PATS CHOICE might be a bit out of his depth here but is bottom weight and will have Jordan Gainford booked to ride.

We switch track and go for the La Touche where Jack Kennedy rides COKO BEACH. This horse ran a cracker in the Grand National two weeks ago and has schooled well over these fences. It’ll be a big ask but he takes well to this type of race.

TEAHUPOO returns alongside SIRE DU BERLAIS for the stayers hurdle. Teahupoo comes here fresh having not gone to Aintree. The ground will be on the quick side for him and Jack Kennedy has been booked to ride. Sire Du Berlais is also fresh for this and will like the conditions on offer with Mark Walsh booked to ride.

We have a number of horses going forward for the Listed handicap hurdle; MAXXUM, LUCKY LYREEN, STUZZIKINI and WILL DO. Maxxum made a mistake the last day when going well and has been reunited with Carl Millar to take 7lbs off the nearly top weight. Lucky Lyreen has a lovely mark and seems to have got into the swing of things and Jack Kennedy is booked to ride. Stuzzikini won the charity race here last year but may have been a bit found out by the handicapper. Jake Coen is booked to ride and claims 5lbs. Finally we have Will Do who is now off a nice mark and will have Danny Gilligan claiming 5lbs.

For the mares novice hurdle we have MISS AGUSTA. It was great to see her score the last day and she likes it around here having come 2nd in the Landrover bumper. This is another ride for Jack.

Our last runner of the evening is WINGMEN in the bumper. He went too slow the last day to get into it so hopefully they go a good gallop here and Harry Swan is in the saddle claiming 5.
