Shanahan’s Turn 10/1 @ Punch

Paul Ferguson has one selection for us on Friday; Shanahan’s Turn in the Punchestown 16.20. Compare odds and bet.

The penultimate day of the Punchestown Festival is all about Faugheen from a purists point of view, but On The Fringe shouldn’t be forgotten either, as he bids to complete the famous treble in the concluding Racing Post Champion Hunters Chase, having scored at both Cheltenham and Aintree.

In terms of the day’s selection, the Grade A novices’ handicap chase looks as competitive as ever, but I’m prepared to take a chance on Shanahan’s Turn (16:20) who hasn’t been seen since pulling up in the Grade 1 Flogas Novice Chase in February.

A well-beaten fifth the time before, also in Grade 1 company behind Don Poli, he had earlier made up into a smart novice winning his first two starts over fences in fine style. Henry De Bromhead’s imposing son of Imperial Danehill lost his way a little thereafter, but he is potentially well treated and there is a chance he might bounce back on better ground and having been freshened up.

Available around 16-1 on first show on Thursday, I’m prepared to give him another chance at the odds.

A horse that has been popular in this column over the past couple of seasons Wuff is another to note at similar odds. He certainly looks on a decent mark and, should his jumping click on this better ground in a strongly run race, he could easily go well under Tom Scudamore.

Friday’s selection:
