16:55 Punchestown – Next Destination (BEST ODDS 15/8 with Betfair)
This horse was unbeaten over hurdles until he came up against the mighty Samcro and there is no shame in having lost to such a classy horse and he did run well on the day. That race gave a good indication of things to come as he does indeed look like he will be a staying hurdler in the future. This is a step up in trip, but I think he’ll have no problem in handling the 3m distance. The main danger is Kilbricken Storm, but I think it’ll be too difficult for him to replicate his Cheltenham form again here.
