Not much form to go on here but is a newcomer for the Gigginstown team. Trained by Henry de Bromhead, the dam is an unraced half-sister to a bumper, 2m3f to 3m1f hurdle and chase winner Savant Bleu who is out of French 2m1f to 2m5f hurdle and chase winning sister of the smart chaser Innox. The breeding is certainly there and time will tell whether Rachel Blackmore has an easy task.
Selection: Arcadian Sunrise (Nap)
If your looking for something that has good form, then look no further, for the Arcadian has won 3 of his last 6 races. (2 over hurdles and 1 on the flat). He can handle the conditions but wouldn’t want it too heavy giving weight away. Denis O’Regan has been among the winners so we rate this our Nap at Punchestown.
Selection: Run Wild Fred
Won a Grade 3 Novice here last season over 3 mile on heavy ground proving to be a very smart hurdler. Had an opening race over 2m6f at Limerick early this month but was a beaten odds-on favourite for a chasing debut. This is a strong race here but we think Run Wild Fred will come on for that run having been going well 2f out.
