The first race on day two of the Punchestown Festival is the 2m 4 1/2f Series Final Handicap Hurdle and the top weighted Mt Leinster Gold looks to be a big player.
The seven year old mare is unbeaten in both starts under rules and before that landed a hat-trick and point to point races.
In February of this year the daughter of Gold Well made her hurdles debut over two miles in maiden and went on to take the event by five lengths.
He then went to Wexford on better ground, stepping up to three miles and showed his versatility to again win well.
Dropping in down in trip is no problem and starting off on a mark of 123 for his handicap debut looks workable, especially with talented claimer Jordan Gainford taking 4lb off.
