Punchestown Day 3
Cantlow was poor in cheltenham in the Cross Country but ran a reasonable race in the Irish National when a mistake 3 out, put paid to a decent finish from him. He was good enough around here on his first try in these events and given that he should prefer this ground and get up to a stone from the favourite here he looks a bit of value at 25/1 to improve.

Ttebbob was an antepost bet of mine at the festival and I think he could well improve here on decent ground. His last 2 poor runs are just too bad to believe and given the decent break he’s had now along with what looked 2 stellar wins early in the season, 28/1 looks value here. It’s worth a gamble at that price that he will be back to form here and the stable is in top form at the moment. He also has the big advantage of missing all the other festivals and comes here a fresh horse.

Here for the Crack is on a decent mark has been running well on the flat and goes well on decent ground. He is still relatively unexposed in handicap hurdles and after a recent good spin on the flat in Leopardstown after a break he should be ready to go here. 16/1 looks value.
