Shanahan’s Turn 4/5 @ Punch

Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Wednesday; Shanahan’s Turn in the Punchestown 15:05. Compare odds and bet.

Noel Meade landed today’s 2m4f beginners’ chase at Punchestown in 2009 (with the classy Pandorama), 2010 and 2011 and his Wounded Warrior is greatly respected, but Shanahan’s Turn (15:05) gets the vote in what looks a match on paper.

Henry De Bromhead’s imposing son of Indian Danehill won his point-to-point by a distance and looked throughout his novice hurdle campaign that he would come into his own over fences. That didn’t prevent him winning a Leopardstown maiden over Christmas, after which he was off the track until shaping well for a long way behind Faugheen in the Neptune.

He went on to finish fifth behind Beat That and Don Poli at this track and has conditions in his favour for this eagerly anticipated fencing bow. The six-year-old can give his connections a second win in the race in three years, with Buckers Bridge successful in the 2012 renewal for De Bromhead and the Potts’.

Back to Wounded Warrior, who himself looks like improving for going chasing, he could really put it up to the selection in a race that should be worth watching closely; it could well come down to the jumping and De Bromhead’s newcomers usually know their job.

Wednesday’s selection:
15:05 Punchestown: Shanahan’s Turn; 4/5 William Hill
