6.00 Punchestown 2m½f (2m100y) Goffs Defender Bumper (4-5yo)
Plenty guess work in this bumper, Gordon Elliot runs six and looks to hold a very strong hand. Speculatrix has to be respected after his course and distance success but I will take a chance with Tactical Affair, who is a nice type on paper and has the services of Jamie Codd.
Selection Tactical Affair
6.35 Punchestown 3m½f (3m60y) Dooley Insurance Group Champion Novice Chase (Grade 1) (5yo+)
None of these are totally proven over this type of trip however Journey of Me looks one of the more likely ones to appreciate the test and arrives here a fresher horse than most. Henry De Bromhead and Rachel Blackmore continue in fine form.
