Punchestown Festival Tips Day One

We begin with a Cross Country Chase before getting stuck into the Grade 1 action with the Herald Champion Novice Hurdle over an extended two miles. A race in which Willie Mullins has been prolific in with four of the last five winners, he’ll have a strong hand once more.

A Handicap Hurdle over the same trip follows before the second top level contest of the day, the BoyleSports Champion Chase. Last years winner Un De Sceaux is back for more but won’t have it easy against his stablemate Min, who produced a career-best in slamming his rivals at Aintree earlier in the month.

The Goffs Land Rover Bumper is always a race to follow in the seasons that follow, with Petit Mouchoir, Vision Des Flos and Commander Of Fleet just three recent winners who have gone on to land big prizes over obstacles.

Three mile Novice Chasers take the penultimate spot on the card in the final Grade 1 of the day, before proceedings are rounded off with another Bumper.
