Tully- Ho At Punchestown


I won’t pretend that racing here in the UK is all that this afternoon because it isn’t, but Punchestown hopefully ride to our rescue with some really interesting horses on shoe in some seriously competitive events. The novice hurdle at 3.05pm is a prime example, with four of the eight runners a winner last time out and three trained by that man Willie Mullins.

No Flies On Him could be anything after an easy maiden win and is one to watch, alongside Boldog, but this is different gravy and I narrowly prefer Tullyhill, who appears to be the Mullins first string. Second to the classy A Dream To Share in the Punchestown Champion bumper last season, he was stepped up in trip for his hurdling bow when a distant second here, but made amends on his second start over obstacles with a very easy victory at Naas. He won’t get it all his own way on the front end in this field which is the main concern, but if he can transfer his bumper form to hurdles he looks by far the likeliest winner.
