PUNCHESTOWN Festival day 3Free Horse Racing TIps
We really should have won yesterday with Bravemansgame and a better jump at the last and I think we may have had the winner.
Today we have another free tip and it goes down as my Nap of Punchestown.
PRICES CORRECT AT THE TIME OF SENDING LAST NIGHT
WALKING ON AIR 8/1 generally – 1 POINT E/W (6 places, 1/5 odds)
My NAP of the whole of Punchestown, hence the raised stake. WALKING ON AIR runs here off an Irish mark of 136. We were on him at the Cheltenham Festival when he came home 5th in the Pertemps Hurdle and I thought he really should have won but for a bad ride by Nico De Boinville. I said that day he was 10lb ahead of the handicapper and I will say the same here. Trust this is a proper horse who has his best days ahead of him and I have no doubt he will turn out much better than a handicap horse. He is a very lightly raced 6 year old who is just going to keep on improving and Nicky Henderson is not sending him to this race for nothing. It could be a messy race but I hope Daryl Jacob has him nice and prominent and gives him the best chance possible. For me he is no doubt the best horse in the race and if it all goes to plan, he wins this virtually on the bridle. The better the ground the better chance he has. E/W.
