Who To Follow At Punchestown On Sunday - 14/02/21

Horse To Follow - Jungle Boogie

Willie Mullins has had a superb season to date with his novice hurdlers and he looks to have another special one in the making here with Jungle Bookie.

The seven year old is slightly late to the party but what he showed us in November on his rules debut in a bumper at Clonmel was a sight to behold.

The Malcolm Denmark owned gelding went on to land a 10 runner bumper by close to four lengths and if taking to hurdles on debut looks hard to beat off the back of that.

Trainer To Follow - Jessica Harrington

Jessica Harrington has had an up and down season over the jumps to date having some strong months and then some lesser times with winners, but on Sunday at Punchestown she has some live chances.

Her big chances across the day seem to come in the way of Lifetime Ambition in the maiden hurdle, with the gelding running some big races in defeat this season behind the likes of Fighter Allen and Stattler.

Another interesting runner on the day in the big Grand National Trial for Harrington is Discordantly, who needs to find his form from earlier on in the season.

Jockey To Follow - Mark Walsh

Mark Walsh is a man in top class form of late and on Sunday at Punchestown has a superb book of rides that sgould see him back in the winners enclosure.

Walsh best chance on the day comes in the second race with Thedevilscoachman for Noel Meade looking to mix it at Listed level after a comfortable win last time out in a novice hurdle.

Another big chance for the Irishman comes in the Novice Chase with Duc D'allier who came back from 946 days off to win last time out.

Walsh has managed to land four winners from his last 22 rides over the last 14 days which sees him currently running at a 18.18% win rate.
