There is plenty of racing to look forward to across the UK and Ireland on Tuesday, including the opening afternoon of the Punchestown Festival.
The final big meeting of the Irish National Hunt season will take place over the next five days, with Tuesday’s eight-race card from 15:40-19:45 including three Grade 1 races, the 16:15 Champion Novice Hurdle, the Champion Chase at 17:25 and the 18:35 Champion Novice Chase.
The latter of those races will benefit from Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ promotion, with Bob Olinger (5/4), fresh from winning the Turners Novices’ Chase at Cheltenham last month, expected to take some stopping for the successful Henry De Bromhead and Rachael Blackmore partnership.
That will not be the only race from Punchestown where Betfred’s ‘Extra Place’ offer will come into play, as it will also be available for the 16:50, 18:00 and 19:45.
