Punchestown On TG4 At 9.20 Next Saturday Handicap Hurdle (Rated 0-140) of £22,500.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 1st - £14,625.00 2nd - £4,500.00 3rd - £2,250.00 4th - £900.00 9 Declared Heavy (Soft To Heavy in Places) Overcast


Formscan By Eamonn Murphy - J P McManus has three in here, so happenings in the market will obviously be key, but EL MONDO is very interesting. His then trainer, Nicky Henderson said the following of El Mondo in advance of last season: "This looked a top class prospect when winning his two starts for G Cherel as a three-year-old. J P felt another year would do him no harm and gave him time to mature into what should be a very exciting chaser. He came in last season but unfortunately didn't make it to the racecourse due to a hind leg injury and he had to return to Martinstown. He is back here in fantastic condition and let's hope we will be able to exploit his enormous potential." All three of the runners sporting the green and gold (Sportsmaster and Knocklong being the other two) look like they could have a chance, so whatever comes alive in the market could be the one. The Gigginstown House Stud-owned pair, Beef To The Heels and Maxim Gorky are lively contenders too in a pretty open race.
