Shocking card imo,first 2 races have huge odds on shots ,is this the way its going to be for the next couple of months I wonder. Foxrock if taking to these obstacles should pick these up no problem.

Lots of discussion on here 18 months back about the run of High Tail It in a Tipp maiden hurdle when he finished second.
He is now reemerging in a bumper in Punchestown.
He looks to have only The Comediologist to beat,this lad was odds on for a Naas bumper at the start of the year.
He was trained then by Emmet Mullins,they talked him up so much there was an export sign stamped on him.
He was well beaten but the chat worked and he was sold to Gigginstown,he's now with Noel Meade.

Despite the connections High Tail It is a pure wrong price at 6/1

Senewalk is another talking horse but this lad is not for sale and could be the real deal

I forgave High Tail at the time,same silks(Rathpatrick) but could never forgive his Thurles run and think that was vindicted next time at Cheltenham. Books don't know how to price it up,it will have its going as phished there today. First time this season and G3 from handicap would still be worth a watch.
Good card for a Saturday at Punchestown but tough to me also for a bet,P Kellys pair worth a lazy eye as well.

Shocking card? Very interesting card imo

Shattered love looks overpriced at 7/4 -15/8 in what looks a match, the step up in trip will suit this **** mare and she'll have a fitness edge over let's dance ( last year's juvenile hurdlers has taken a couple of knocks already this season even if seasonal debut's can't always be taken at face value). Using rosshaven lady as a moderate marker, SL looks progressive and can' understand such a disparity in the prices.

Coney island at 7/4 in a beginners chase, if only you could lay that price,

PUNCHESTOWN Soft (All Courses) and muckin CHILLY OUT THERE !


12.00 3-Y-O Hdl (2m, 12 runners). Maiden winner here Zanjabeel (10) from Landofhopeandglory (2/5) & Tout Est Permis (12)

12.30 Mares Hdl (Listed) (4yo+, 2m 2f, only 5 runners – 6 ran last year) WPM 123 last year but only one choice this year so Lets Dance 8/15 - the forecast with Shattered Love (7/4) will do better.

1.00 Beginners S'chase (4yo+, 2m 4f, 14 runners). Happy to hang my top hat on Woodland Opera 11/4. "He had a wind operation after running at Leopardstown and it seems to have worked. He just couldn't breathe. He'll definitely go chasing next year. At the end of the day he's going to be a chaser so anything he does over hurdles is a bonus.” Mrs John Harrington. "He's out of Opera Hat who Valerie (Cooper) also raced and was trained by my brother John (Fowler, to win 15 races). Opera Hat produced nothing until Valerie's son Patrick bought her in England and gave her back to Valerie as a Christmas present and Woodland Opera is her last foal." JP’s Coney Island (5/2) will give us the 1-2. Would love to see Philip’s Mall Dini in third. Looks a big ask to live up to the last 3 winners - Outlander, Valseur Lido & Champagne Fever - but hang your gibus on Jessie’s top class act.

1.35 H'cap S'chase (0-140) (4yo+, 2m 6f, 13 runners). On The Shannon (16) won fto after a long break last season and with Barry Browne (up again on his first Irish winner) claiming seven – we’ll Keep The Faith Big Willy Wonka and bank on the Shannon to do the same again (BB also rides in 3.05 Sunday). “He can take a bit of a tow early on but he doesn't do anything too bad. He carries his head low and is a real chasing type. I like that in a horse.” – Trainer Oliver McKiernan. Davy’s ridden a few of these and might know his place to Call It Magic (6) while there’s a bigger h/cap in Oscar Knight.

2.10 Novice H'cap Hdl ( 80-123) (4yo+, 2m, 8 runners). Looks like Presenting Percy (6/5) and Davy with a third Orish winner this week and he ain’t finished yet.

2.45 Risk Of Thunder S'chase (5yo+, 3m, 13 runners). On soft we opt for Maher’s Ballyboker Bridge (7) over 3m and let those other Goonyella (s)(9/2) Ted & Enda fight out the placings.

3.20 M'dn Hdl (4yo, 2m 4f, 22 runners). Just hope Senewalk (4/9) can jump and doesn’t do a ‘Beau Mome’ on it this year. Let’s watch next year’s Chasers like Runfordave (12), Minella Till Dawn (7), Monastic (40) & Moulin A Vent (11/4) strut their stuff.

3.55 INH Flat Race (5-7yo, 2m, only 7 runners). Not many come back successfully to bumpers from a hurdle debut (like Dessie & Sandra or Gordon with Space Cadet, No More Heroes & All Hell Let Loose) but let Jessie High Tail It (5) if they do today - Mrs John Harrington, confirmed that HTI is a chaser in the making who will benefit from a step up in trip as he matures. On the come back to 2m after a forty two day suspension since April 2015....and all while Noel gets a ‘funny’ free debut run from WPM. When does Willie's winter wonders get going? – It’s getting chilly out there !!!

Coney Island will win have his turn but won't be seen at his best until he's stepped up in trip,
Mall Dini above average too but think he was given a sighter today,

Stone hard and woodland opera will win plenty too.

That thing of Gigginstown in the bumper will be doing well to win a race, they were well and truly sold a pup there.

love it!

The abiding memory of the weekend for me was how comically bad The Comediologist was on Saturday, don't know when they bought him exactly from Patrick, but I wonder given the usual farsightedness of the Mullins family, was this a 'fcuk you' on the way out the door?

The late betting suggested someone knew it was useless, anyway.

I wonder might Riviera Sun find it a little easier jumping out of better ground somewhere, I'd have said Leopardstown but the fences there are really tough.

Samcro looked something special, could sustain the point guys for another while with what they go on with. Thankfully nobody yet has been caught for the third from that point.

I'm not sure his two races have done much for Identity Thief, he seems to me like a horse who when it is put to him by a good one, will fold.

In the first, I'm wondering whether they are working toward something at Christmas with Aspen Colorado, or whether he is just sh!t.

Last years juveniles look brutal, Ivanocvich Gorbatov will barely be in the top half of the weights for the County the way things are going. I could see Sempre Medici going well off 150 in one of the big ones in England on better ground.

Disko ran like the exchange betting suggested, A Toi Phil has really taken off but would doubt he has the resolve of a Drinmore winner.

Great to see First To Boogie win for all it was probably one of those races we get in Ireland from time to time.

I have this nagging feeling we might not see Annie Power at her best again, we've had these stories before about her, but she really takes so much out of herself every time she runs. I wonder is she wising up.

Report neill d November 20, 2016 9:55 PM GMT
Was really disappointed in Disko, actually. He is as others have said, probably a big soft giraffe; even so, he should have ran a bit better than that and its another big horse from the Meade yard that hasn't delivered.

I don't mind it to be honest, especially in this instance, part of the colour of the game.

The trainer seemed like a really nice girl. Freddie was really on the up, huge pity, had outgrown the frankly woeful Northern flat scene. was better than most flat jocks in the UK.

Right man on board and best pf luck to Madeleine Tylicki....
First To Boogie landed a gamble when staying on stoutly to take the two mile six handicap hurdle in Punchestown.
The eight-year-old gelding is trained by Madeleine Tylicki, sister of Freddy Tylicki who suffered life-changing injuries in a recent fall at Kempton. This was her first success in the training ranks.

First To Boogie opened at 3/1 and was heavily backed down to 6/4 favourite, with Davy Russell in the plate for the first time. The pair were always prominent in fourth behind the leader El Vasco and Ruby Walsh. The fog had worsened to further reduce visibility but when the field came back into view, after jumping the last,First To Boogie had grabbed the lead and thundered home to provide a popular win. The winning margin was two and a quarter lengths from Lasoscar (14/1). Tellthemnuttin (10/1) and Clontarf (12/1) completed the placings in this 17-runner contest.

“It's my first winner and a very special one obviously. It will put a smile on the family’s face again so I’m absolutely delighted,” Madeleine Tylicki said. “He’s a lovely horse. We’ll take him home, freshen him up again and make a plan then. All going well he’ll have a bright future. “Today was the plan and it worked out. Luck was on our side and it was great for Freddy. He rang me straight away after the race and he was absolutely delighted. It's a very special day right now.
"I got the licence in June. We have a nice team of horses, young horses at home ready for next year so plenty to look forward to. I'm based 15 minutes from here.

"I'm very grateful for the support and the messages, it is very uplifting for Freddy. He's very thankful. It's only three weeks tomorrow (since Freddy's fall). It's a tough time. He's a very determined, tough, young man and he has shown that in his career as a jockey. I'm absolutely confident that he will fight through this."

...This PEACE NEWS for HDB (in Cork) should skate in if reputations are anything to go by...


Peace News showed plenty of promise on debut when winning the two mile maiden hurdle at Cork for Henry de Bromhead and Dylan Robinson. Timi Roli made progress from fourth to just shade Peace News at the third last and that order was maintained at the penultimate flight. However, Robinson had plenty of horse under him and he sent the 7/4 favourite for home approaching the last. Timi Roli couldn't go with him but Chirico Vallis (5/2) started to get into full stride on the run-in and stayed on to close to within two and a half lengths of the winner.
Timi Roli (5/2) kept on for third, beaten seven lengths....(wonder does Willie consider this lad as good as his 4 previous winners of this race? - or is the yard not firing yet?).

Henry de Bromhead, in Punchestown, said: "He’s a nice horse. I haven’t seen the race yet. He only came to us a month or six weeks ago and he came with a big reputation. Thankfully he’s someway fulfilled it today. “He did it nicely. He hadn’t blown us away at home but we haven’t had him that long and we’re probably not hard enough on them at home anyway to be blown away. “I’m delighted he’s won and he’s a nice horse. It looked a good maiden hurdle. “Dylan’s quite cool. He keeps me on the edge of my seat now and again. I’ll be interested to take a look at it. Thankfully I’ll know the result when I’m looking at it.”
Dylan Robinson added: “He travelled very nicely and felt like a very good horse. He had loads left in the tank and has plenty of gears.”
The German-bred winner won on the flat at Clairefontaine in France in August last year.

That fog a jockeys dream when the handbrake is on.
Hard to know what they'll do with IG now, although giving connections will no doubt run like a mule until Cheltenham then be back to form for the county.

I thought the race fell in his lap and is not a horse I would trust.

Not that Mincer11 would give a continental but hate to see old threads being brought up like this.

It's like notebooking of horses ( complete cod), eventually one will be right or wrong.

I'd be delighted to see Mincer11 posting more as is clearly knowledgeable and although this is irrelevant, it just lacks class in my view
