Punchestown at the double

Paul Ferguson has two selections from Punchestown for us on Saturday; Naughtinesse in the 2.33 and Halibut in the 5.28.| Free Bets |

The 127-rated Heias sets a fair standard in the mares’ novice hurdle at Punchestown, but Naughtinesse (2:33) put up a smart performance on hurdling debut and is taken to strike again for Lorna Fowler. The six-year-old was a bumper winner at Fairyhouse, having earlier shaped well at this track in the 2021 festival. Eighth in the Grade 2 at Aintree, the daughter of Kayf Tara is bred to appreciate this longer trip.

Later on the card, all eyes will be on the exciting Demandrivingdouvan in the concluding bumper, with Gordon Elliott’s five-year-old having looked very exciting when winning his Point. Spread Boss Ted also contested a good race in the Pointing field, albeit he was well-beaten when falling at the last behind Anyharminasking and Constitution Hill, and this has the look of a good bumper for the time of year. The one I want to be with, however, is Halibut (5:28) in the hope that the aforementioned pairing make the market and he is available at an each-way price. Emmet Mullins’ Balko gelding caught the eye when coming from off the pace at the festival here last month (actually in the same race in which Naughtinesse finished runner-up 12 months earlier) and has since been purchased by leading owner Chris Jones.

Saturday’s selections:
2:33 Punchestown – Naughtinesse; 13/8 BetVictor
5:28 Punchestown – Halibut; 5/6 Coral
