Cleeve members selections – Punchestown day 3

We move on to Day 3 of the Punchestown Festival with another profitable day behind us thanks to another top class performance from Don Cossack (surely the chaser of the season) and a cracking run from Babymix who jumped like a stag and looked the likely winner doe a long way until getting tired between…

Cleeve member selections – Punchestown day 1

The Punchestown Festival starts today and there is some fabulous racing in prospect this week…  but it is only fair to say that what historically has been a Willie Mullins benefit, is dominated by him more than ever this year, so the meeting is somewhat less of a spectacle than it might be given there…
