Jersey Still After A Share Of BoyleSports Money

The final day of the Punchestown Festival will see Willie Mullins crowned champion trainer for the 13th time and Paul Townend become champion jockey for a second time.

It will also see jockey Donie McInerney claim a second conditional jockeys championship and he may well cap off another good season with a winner on the final day.

Brassil And Mulryan Might Take Compensation In The Ballymore
City Island just seemed to be feeling the pinch from his Cheltenham exploits when returning at Punchestown yesterday but don’t write him off for next season. His connections may get some compensation with Take Revenge in the Ballymore Novice Hurdle.

Martin Brassil has already prepared City Island to win one Ballymore race this year and he may well claim the next most lucrative here with Take Revenge.

This is an ultra-competitive heat and the horse that is prominent in the betting and deserves to be there is Canardier as he has ran two fine races at Cheltenham and Aintree.

However, Take Revenge looks a good bet at 10/1 for a course and distance winner. Brassil and Mulryan combined to win the bumper yesterday and the maiden hurdle winner is off a nice racing weight of 10st9lbs with three Grade 1 winners at the top of the weights.

Tornado Flyer beat Take Revenge earlier this season and he finished a respectable fourth in a Grade 1 yesterday and the form of Take Revenge’s Punchestown maiden has also thrown up winners.

It’s a bookmakers dream on the final day of the Irish National Hunt season to have a race like this but…

Take Revenge could put a dent in the winnings at those odds.

Jersey Still After A Share Of BoyleSports Money
C’est Jersey was quietly fancied by some shrewd judges in the BoyleSports Irish Grand National but the seven-year-old took a crashing fall at the sixth fence on that occasion. He didn’t go far loose though and he may be a nice winner for Wexford native Daryl Jacob in the BoyleSports Handicap Chase today.

A bit like the Irish Grand National winner Burrows Saint, C’est Jersey could be on the right side of the handicapper due to his lack of runs over fences.

C’est Jersey is a second season novice and he was actually beaten by six lengths to Kemboy last season before he returned to hurdles for the spring of the year. Ground conditions forced him to miss half this season too and C’est Jersey is actually still a novice over fences but this would be a nice race to open his account.

A runner up at 33/1 at this fixture last year on the final day…

hopefully C’est Jersey can go one better this time around at around about 6/1.

Recommended Bets:
Take Revenge (10/1) – 5.35 Punchestown
C’est Jersey (6/1) – 3.10 Punchestown
