3:50pm Punchestown Richard Maher Memorial Rated Novice Chase 2m



Dr Mikey is often underestimated and boasts a strong victory over the talented A Plus Tard this season. St Stephen’s Green also comes into this race on the back of a good win, beating Winter Escape before the runner up secured back-to-back Graded wins. 

While both cannot be discounted, IMPACT FACTOR has impressed on several occasions without getting his head over the line and I fancy Robbie Power’s mount will claim his first victory over fences on Sunday.

Jessica Harrington’s charge began his chasing career in extremely inauspicious fashion. A tenth place finish was followed by a late fall at Thurles, before Impact Factor finished some 40 lengths behind A Plus Tard over 19 furlongs. Harrington decided a drop in trip was necessary after a trio of underwhelming performances, a move which has brought around a stark change in fortunes.

Impact Factor ran on well for third behind Paloma Blue at the Leopardstown Festival. Power’s mount was then beaten by just two lengths by Uisce Beatha, before a similarly narrow defeat to Cilaos Emery in a hot Novice Chase at Gowran Park.

The 10/1 shot finished ahead of two very good horses in Duc Des Genievres and Ex Patriot that day and won well on the hurdles track here last season. Impact Factor looks a solid proposition at the head of the betting.
