Punchestown Sunday Preview - 09/12/2018

12:20 - Count Simon

This gelding is dropping back in trip, after struggling to stay the 2m 3f trip last time out.

But this four-year-old was in good form prior to that run at 2m and looks to have a good chance at the weights in this contest. Under bottom weight, and Davy Russell getting the leg up, who has won on this horse in the past, would lead to the suggestion that a good run is likely.

Count Simon has the highest rating in the race.

12:55 - School Boy Hours

Stayed on gamely last time to get within a couple of lengths of the winner, who was gifted a soft lead.

This step up in trip is certain to suit, as given that extra furlong in his previous outing, he would’ve gotten up to win. Beaten last twice as favourite, but this Noel Meade runner is worth sticking with, as a win is just around the corner.

Will look to be prominent throughout and be presented late. Likely to come on for the run last time.

13:25 - Auvergnat

Didn’t jump with any fluency last time, failing to make an impression in a big field event at Galway. Having said that, this 8-year-old gelding was in fine form prior to that run.

Has been competitive in better races than this and has every chance if he can rekindle previous form. Has won three times around Punchestown, so will relish the course.

Doesn’t enjoy Galway as much, so this Bolger horse could be forgiven for his latest run. Coming off a break.

14:00 - Shattered Love

Won at the Cheltenham Festival with authority at 144 and hasn’t been disgraced since the move up in grade since.

This Gordon Elliot horse needs even more than her previous form but may be capable under bottom weight. The only mare in the race and is gifted bags of weight from the other horses in the field.

With the half a stone that she is getting from her male counterparts, and with top jockey, Jack Kennedy on board, this mare enters the calculations.

14:30 - Mitchouka

Didn’t last the 2m 2f out last time. Mistakes at key times in the race cost him his position in the race and fell away tamely.

But this gelding has ran well after a break in the past, and his experience of jumping fences could be crucial in this beginners’ chase.

Has a live chance at the weights, gaining weight from all of his rivals and if this Gigginstown horse can rekindle form that he has shown in the past, he won’t be too far away.

15:05 - Se Mo Laoch

Collared on the line last time out over a slightly lesser trip by a progressive sort at Punchestown. Ultra-consistent gelding is sure to run his race once again.

Runner-up in both of his starts so far in his chasing career and this looks like a good opportunity to get his head in front.

Long way clear of the field last time, and the extra two furlongs are likely to suit. Will enjoy conditions, with the ground likely to be good. Leading claims.

15:40 - Cenotice

Wasn’t able to land a glove on the two in front of him in a bumper at Navan last time, but in turn was some way clear of the rest of the field in third.

This gelding has won a point to point over three miles, so this horse will stay every yard of this two-mile trip.

This Noel Meade horse will enjoy the ground and after 175 days off the course before his previous run, he is sure to come on for that run last time out and looks to have a live chance.
