Punchestown 1st May

Adare Manor Opportunity Handicap Hurdle Final 2m 3f

Maroto (Sean Cleary-Farrell) showed improvement when second over 2 miles at Clonmel last month and going out in trip here will be a huge benefit. He has a fighting chance.

Auction Hurdle Final 2m 3f

Blizzard Of Oz (Paul) is two from three over hurdles and is improving nicely. He is a course and distance winner and should go close.

Louis Fitzgerald Hotel Hurdle 2m 3f

Mistergif (Paul) was fourth to Mystical Power at Aintree and is suited by the race conditions here. We’re confident of a big run.

Grade 1 Novice Hurdle 3 miles

Dancing City (Paul) was very good when upped in trip at Aintree and has been improving as the season goes on. He has every chance of giving his owners compensation for losing Shiskin last Sunday.

High Class Hero (Sean O’Keeffe) has had an excellent year at the country tracks but needs a career best if he is to get involved.

Lecky Watson (Danny) ran nicely in the Albert Bartlett but is destined for place money here unless Danny can muster a career best.

Cuta Des As (Brian Hayes) is a course winner here but will find this tough.

Grade 1 Champion Bumper 2 miles

Argento Boy (Pat Taaffe) was disappointing in the Cheltenham Bumper and would need to improve hugely.

Jasmin De Vaux (Patrick) won the Cheltenham Bumper and that form stands out here. A reproduction of that run would see him take a lot of beating.

My Great Mate (Eliot Ohgren) is a course and distance winner but is another who would need to improve significantly.

Redemption Day (Jody) has a chance if he can recapture the form that saw him finish second to Jalon D’oudairies at Leopardstown at Christmas.

Sounds Victorius (Charlie Mullins) has been improving all season and ran very well at Cheltenham. He is one to watch when he goes novice hurdling next season.

You Oughta Know (Tom Costello) disappointed on soft ground at Cheltenham but has a chance here if the rain doesn’t arrive.

Gold Cup 3m 1f

Appreciate It (Patrick) is a course winner but will find this difficult. He has an each-way chance.

Capodanno (Mark Walsh) is a course and distance winner and didn’t get a hard race in the Grand National. He has his chance.

Galopin Des Champs (Paul) has been doing things right all year and loves this track. Hopefully, he can avenge last year’s defeat by Fastorslow.

Handicap Chase 2m 4f

James du Berlais (Paul) was a shade unlucky when second at Aintree and if that hasn’t compromised him he has every chance even with top-weight.

Authorised Art (Danny) hasn’t run since last November and will find this tough.

Adamantly Chosen (Sean O’Keeffe) found the Grand National trip too far but will like this track and trip.

Grade 3 Mares Bumper 2 miles

Patrick has gone for Aurora Vega. The drier spring ground will be a big benefit.

Femme Magnifique (Eliot Ohgren) disappointed on her last couple of runs but fingers crossed she will find some improvement today.

Fleur Au Fusil (Jody) has two very good wins and then maybe the occasion got to her at Cheltenham. She will go well if she puts her best foot forward.

Magic McColgan (Charlie Mullins) is a well bred sister to Tornado Flyer and has a good chance here.
