The first selection from Punchestown on Sunday comes in the 3-Y-O Hurdle and we are siding with the Padraig Roche trained Sundial.
A horse that has moved to the yard to go over hurdles having previously been trained by Aidan O'Brien, he is now under the ownership of JP McManus.
Following the same path as similar horses like Brazil and Cougar who have both taken to hurdles from the flat for the same team, Sundial looks another potentially smart type to add to that list.
Seen four times on the flat he showed his best when stepped up in trip, finishing second on first start over two miles on a maiden and then when last seen at Navan in October over 1m6f on heavy ground he got off the mark in good style.
He looks like a horse that will improve for the switch to hurdles and with the yard and connections having previous with this, he looks interesting.
