Punchestown 20th November

Brahma Bull (Brian Hayes) runs in the Risk Of Thunder Cross Country Chase over 3 miles. He has been disappointing but he will like this ground and is a course and distance winner. He has experience of cross country fences from his run in the Glenfarclas Chase at Cheltenham.

We will have three runners in the 2 mile Morgiana Hurdle. Saldier (Danny) has twice won over this course and distance and won this race in 2019. His recent form leaves a lot to be desired but we are hoping he might get back to form here. However, it is hard to see him finish other than in the placings. Sharjah (Patrick) won this race in 2018 and 2021 and seems fresh and well at home. Today’s race is well within his grasp. Paul has opted to ride State Man who is a course winner and will like this ground and trip. He is in good form at home and is open to more improvement than our other two runners.

Seabank Bistro (Paul) makes his hurdling debut in the 2m 5f maiden hurdle. He will like this track and ground and his work and jumping at home has been good. We’ll be disappointed if he’s not in the shake-up.

Shewearsitwell (Paul) goes for the Pertemps Handicap Hurdle Qualifier over 3 miles. She needs to get herself back into form and we think this trip is what she wants. It would be great if she can qualify for the final of this series as it would give us something to aim at in the spring.

Lecky Watson (Patrick) runs in the bumper. He was second to stablemate Icare Desbois on his debut in the Tattersalls Sales Bumper at Fairyhouse in April. He got into all sorts of trouble coming up the straight that day and could be deemed a shade unlucky. Hopefully, he will go one better today.
