Punchestown 19th February

We have two runners in the 3m 4f handicap chase. Captain Kangaroo (Jack Foley) fell early in the Paddy Power Chase at Leopardstown and then pulled up in the Thyestes. He will like this trip and ground but needs to get his act together if he is to get involved here. Likewise, Stones And Roses (Paul) needs to up his game. He pulled up in the Paddy Power last time but he has a nice weight and is a course winner here.

We also have two in the Listed Mares Novice Hurdle over 2m 5f. Paul rides Eabha Grace who was a very easy winner of a maiden here last month. The form has since been franked by the second and this longer trip will suit. Danny rode Hauturiere (Danny) to an impressive win in her maiden at Fairyhouse and he takes the ride again today. She should give another good account here.

We run a nice horse in the bumper. Ballyburn (Patrick) won a point to point and he has been doing things right at home. Ideally, we would prefer softer ground for him but we are really looking forward to seeing how he gets on here.

Janna Walsh rides Scaramanga in the Challenge Race over 2 miles. He is in good form and will really appreciate this ground. On ratings, he should figure prominently.
