Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Tuesday; Astre De La Cour in the Punchestown 16:55. Compare odds and bet.
Cheltenham Festival winners Douvan and Don Poli are the headline acts on show on the opening day of the Punchestown Festival, though from a betting perspective ASTRE DE LA COUR (16:55) is fancied to go well for British trainer, Robert Walford.
Fifth in a very warm renewal of the Gerry Feilden at Newbury in November, the five-year-old returned from a break to score easily at Stratford before following up in the conditional jockeys’ handicap at Aintree on Grand National day.
The selection faces the placed horses from Aintree, but has gone up just 2lbs and has more to offer, especially if David Mullins can get to him settle early on.
A wide open contest (Ladbrokes opened up 8-1 the field on Monday afternoon) he is worthy of each-way support.
16:55 Punchestown – Astre De La Cour; 8/1 Ladbrokes
