Punchestown Horse Racing Tips – Best Bets On Tuesday, November 23
Punchestown Horse Racing Tips – Tuesday November 23
Tuesday’s Irish horse racing action comes from Punchestown, which plays host to a quality eight-race card. Our Irish horse racing expert has identified his top bets on the card which you can check out below.
Get My Drift (2.05 Punchestown)
Mouse Morris sends GET MY DRIFT to contest this 2m hurdle. This Spanish Moon gelding was a high-class novice hurdler for these connections last season, ending the campaign with a head second at the Punchestown Festival, where he looked unfortunate not to claim top honours.
First-time headgear is an interesting addition for his 5yo, who comes out as the one to beat on these terms.
Hunters Yarn (2.35 Punchestown)
Preference in this extended 2m5f maiden hurdle goes to HUNTERS YARN, who was last seen running out a wide-margin winner of a Thurles bumper when last seen back in March.
That was when he was in the care of Pat Doyle, yet he now makes his debut for the champion trainer and runs in the powerful Munir/Souede silks.
Bred to appreciate this step up in distance, everything looks primed for the 4yo to run a big race here.
Saga Aravis (3.05 Punchestown)
The best bet on Punchestown’s Tuesday card comes in the first division of their extended 2m5f handicap hurdle, where SAGA ARAVIS looks the one to beat.
Paul Nolan’s gelding has been in good heart of late, building on a Fairyhouse third when runner-up back at that venue last time.
He has gone up 2lb for that effort yet was arguably a little unfortunate as would have gone close to winning had he cleared the last flight better, and with Bryan Cooper now taking over in the saddle this looks like a good opportunity for the 5yo to break his maiden tag.
Lily Of The Dawn (3.35 Punchestown)
The second division of this race looks like a good opportunity for LILY OF THE DAWN. Shark Hanlon’s mare cut little ice in her first two career starts yet has looked much improved since returning from a break, building on a Navan sixth when going once place better at Clonmel last time.
That was her handicap debut, and the run suggested that a mark of 88 would prove well within her capabilities.
Shane Fenelon now removes a handy 7lb off her back, and the addition of a first-time tongue-tie looks capable of unlocking some improvement.
