    Punchestown
    5.25
    American purchase and sent to Gordon Elliott after wide margin point to point win.
    HALIBUT
    A good third here in a big field bumper is the win saver.

    Yesterdays punchestown bumper runners were second and third, while I managed to put a winning bumper runner in the soul selection thread.
    Punchestowns bumper today has a Mullins horse who looks vunerable at odds on in a big field and the well bred GAOTH CLCHUIL will give the favourite plenty to think about.
    Lots of pedigree in this runner daughter of the Aga Khan’s Hazrand through see the stars. Singspiel is in there, just oozes class.
    Two good seconds in bumpers.
    The Mullins runner has to give 20 pounds to Ted Walsh’s horse and although only four has shown plenty of ability this far.
    GAOTH CLCHUIL is a strong fancy to finish in the first four and looks a cracking place bet given normal improvement.

    Both the soul selection
    EQUINOX and Ted Walsh’s Gaoth Clchuil successfully placed as recommended.
    Equinox in the Japan Derby and on the other side of the world Gaoth Clchuil in the concluding bumper tonight at punchestown.
    On the sad news of the great Lester Piggott’s passing, it was apt not to select anything else.
    We will not see his like again.

    BLOSSOM DE MAI
    Each way
    Waiting in the wings.
    Multiple point to point winner and beaten only by a Mullins hotpot on rules debut.
    Shrewd yard could take this against the french listed Mullins horse.
    Decent hopes getting a stone in hand here.
    Trip a bit short after going three miles for so long

    Win
    Gordon Elliott’s polo lounge was caught cold last time by a well aimed gamble and may do better here.
    Angelsworknovrtime has run well in three bumpers with a couple of the winners going on to win over the jumps….

    HOT AS PEPPER
    And OLD BILL BARLEY
    Should have this race between them but no selection at these cramped odds.
    Listowel 5.30
    Jody Townend could turn things the way of Old bill, but the Mullins horse gives 16 pounds away all told.

    Downpatrick 5.15
    The race hasn’t developed yet as a heat but early doors there is plenty of form to suggest walk in the brise is opposable.
    Beaten favourite the last three runs, Patrick Mullins rides.
    Country Queen drops into bumpers after a good place in a maiden hurdle behind a horse that beat the Mullins horse.
    We are on better ground now but the seven pound claim could be vital here.
    Improvement is very likely obviously from the Mullins horse but I’d rather Jody Townend was riding.
    Country Queen win
    Country Queen win without walk in the brise.

    Rosscommon
    8.30

    A clear favourite here who beat a Mullins hotpot and is massive odds on. Got a massive weight allowance that day and that is reversed here.
    Take him on with

    DORANS HOPE
    Win
    ONEFIVEONE

    DH a hurdler for Emmett Mullins pulled up on debut. Winning claiming jockey rides.
    A bumper provided him with this year’s Grand National winner.

    SILVER BREEZE
    Contested bumpers at Navan and punchestown one listed which has produced plenty of winners.
    Been rested and should be ready on reappearance with decent claimer enlisted.
    Likely to be at least in the shake up.
    Place.
    Wexford 8.30.

    Another decent winner yesterday placed on the other thread…..
    HEXHAM 5pm
    GONE IN SIXTY
    Win
    Represents a decent sire who has had his share of jumps winners recently.
    Was not meant to win last time but put up a decent staying front running performance @ 25s to nearly the second favourite.
    Victory club was not straight forward in head carriage and had to get to work to beat the selection.
    One of three horses in a driving finish where the winner finally asserted in the last few yards.
    Nicky Henderson’s well backed favourite finished well down the field.
    Likely to be well clear of an ordinary looking field if settled early.
    Certainly no need to be overly prominent here and a confident choice if repeating last run.

    Southwell
    2.25
    LOCK AND LOAD
    COPPER VALE

    Both win
    Lock and load ran well at a big price behind a well aimed Irish runner.
    Copper vale belongs to the flying Milton Harris outfit.

    Gone in sixty seconds could not have been better named yesterday…..

    LOOKING DANDY
    MY FERNANDO
    Both win
    Flat bred my Fernando has a ten pound claimer on board.
    ———————————————-
    English bumpers are proving quite tricky to call and for the foreseeable future I’m leaving them alone to concentrate on Irish bumpers.

    SHADY DAISY
    ILANZ

    Shady daisy
    Badly impeded but ran on well for third last time and likely to run well again here.
    Ilanz gets a penalty taken off in full by claimer and has a chance of repeating comfortable win.

    Shady Daisy ran out basically last night refused to settle early doors and run was likely ending after being a long time leader. Jockey and horse crashed through railings. Needs to get over fences as shown plenty of ability already. Ilanz ran well for second with the penalty.

    SAY YOU SAY ME
    Worcester 2.30
    Gordon Elliott sends the first wave of his Armada across the Irish sea.
    Sean Bowen rides this well bred horse whose sire is Fleminsfirth.
    A 155k purchase for Sue Magnier.
    There are more runners at Perth tomorrow but say you say me is his sole runner here.
