Punchestown 31st December

We have two runners in the 2m 7f beginners chase. Aione (Paul) is a fine big chasing type who was second in a 2m 4f beginners chase when last seen at Cork in April. He is a course winner here and will appreciate the step up in trip today. However, he has been a long time off and might find it difficult to be competitive here. Hi Ho Phoenix (Danny) is making his chasing debut. He finished off last season with a win in a maiden hurdle at Fairyhouse and will love this trip and ground. He has an each-way chance.

Sinbad Le Marin (Paul) has his first run for us in the 3yo maiden hurdle over 2 miles. He won and was placed on the flat in France but may not have had any jumping experience coming from a flat yard. He should be good enough to finish in the first three or four here.

Saint Sam (Paul) goes for the conditions hurdle over 2m 3f. He was chasing last year but we have decided to try him over longer trips over hurdles this season. He can be hard on himself in races but his pedigree suggests that he should be well up to tackling staying trips. Some of the opposition here have better credentials but hopefully he will run well.

Abi’s Champ (Patrick) makes her racecourse debut in the mares bumper over 2m 2f. We are not sure if soft ground will suit her style of running but hopefully she will at least finish in the first four.
