PUNCHESTOWN DAY 2. WILLIE CAN BE DOMINANT.
A good start to the meeting for the site with a great return price of 12/1 on Willie’s bumper horse so with the sp or greater rule helping us, that returns a 7 points profit on Day 1 which lifts Fourmileracing to plus 36.5 for the season. Day 2 looks just as difficult.
3 40. The very useful 4lbs claim of Ger Fox leaves SEA LIGHT running off a workable mark of 113. He is a short price but the step up in trip is a further bonus and in a field of quantity rather than quality he is worth risking a 1 pt win at 7/2 with PP.
4 20. Mistake after mistake has blighted the progress of the very smart LE VENT D’ANTAN but the better ground here might just be the answer. If he avoids the blunders he can win in my opinion. 1 pt win at 9/2 PP.
4 55. If I just stuck to my review of Cheltenham I would be buying even more new horses but I intend to follow my own advice here with DON POLI. He has a mighty task on his hands to beat the fav but this rapid improver can do it . I am napping the Don with a 2 pts win at 11/4 PP.
5 30. ON HIS OWN. Another nap . 2 pts win at 7/2 PP.
6 05. SHANESHILL was mugged by Silver Concorde at Cheltenham. It won’t happen again. I rate him the best bumper horse around this season. Yet another nap and a 2 pts win at 7/2 PP.
6 40. This lottery might be won by either of PASS THE HAT or KING VUVEZELA. 1/2 pt win on each at 13/2 and 7/1 respectively with PP.
7 15. TOTALLY DOMINANT could be the best named horse of the evening and was probably called after his genius of a trainer in mind. 1 pt win at 5/2 PP.
