4:50 Punchestown
BRAZIL 6/1 generally – 0.75 POINTS E/W (5 places, 1/5 odds)
It is clear that Mark Walsh thinks this is the best horse of the JP McManus runners (4 in total) as he has chosen to ride BRAZIL, the horse who is highest in the weights. He could have easily picked the Willie Mullins trained Tekao who is right at the bottom of the handicap but instead he is happy with BRAZIL even with 11st 9lb and rated 142. Tekao was also a non runner 2 weeks ago because of an respiratory infection, which I imagine with any infection need to be treated with antibiotics. Surely that cannot be ideal…..
BRAZIL was the winner of the Boodles Handicap Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival last season, beating a good horse in Gaelic Warrior. 
BRAZIL is a well bred horse by Galileo and has run in 3 races over hurdles this season, all graded races. He was 2nd to Champ Kiely in October and that horse went on to finish 3rd in Ballymore Novice Hurdle at this year’s Cheltenham Festival. He then beat a very good horse in Fil Dor at Naas before disappointing over the Christmas period when a long odds on favourite, in deep ground. 
I am happy to put a line through that form as he is no doubt much better than what we saw and maybe he had a niggle as that was the last time we saw BRAZIL until the 5th April.
Trainer Padraig Roche ran him on the flat at Leopardstown over 1m 2f and it was nothing more than a spin to get him fit for this race.
I am sure we will see a fully tuned BRAZIL and I am expecting him to go very close at a nice price. E/W.
Good Luck
