Punchestown Placepot 26th April

Grangee and Dinoblue set a decent standard after they finished 6th and 4th in a Grade 1 at Fairyhouse 2-weeks ago and they look decent value to fill the places dropping back to Listed level.


The drop in trip should be of no real concern for backers of Sir Gerhard, especially with his stablemate Dysart Dynamo in the field to give him a good pace to track and he looks impossible to keep out of the frame.


Glan won with a lot in hand 12 days ago and should be involved in the finish once again from a 7lb higher mark. Eskylane made a pleasing return from an absence and should be involved once more along with Sit Down Lucy who chased home 2 very progressive types when 3rd at Limerick in March.


Having won the Champion Chase last time, Energumene is almost impossible to oppose for place purposes.


Gordon Elliott loves to target this race and so the well-bred pair of As Tears Go By and Caldwell Potter need including. Of those with form, the Naas winner Irish Envoy sets a clear standard.

Bob Olinger was a fortunate winner at the festival, but he still sets a decent standard and should have too much for his rivals as he tackles 3-miles for the first time.
