Bog Warrior favoured in clash with Solwhit

BOG WARRIOR, a Grade 1 winner over fences, is favoured to beat six-time top-level scorer Solwhit over hurdles at Punchestown.

The duo line up in the Follow Punchestown on Facebook Hurdle and Bog Warrior is 5-4 to come out on top.

He can also be backed at 11-8, while Solwhit, racing for the first time in 708 days, is 5-2.

Davyy Russell, aboard Solwhit for his Grade 1 wins, partners Bog Warrior and said of the eight-year-old: "We hold him in high regard and he'll love the ground.

"I'm sure he'll stay two and a half miles, but it's a competitive race - Solwhit's no back number."

Like Punchestown, Tramore and Uttoxeter passed morning inspections, while Lingfield stages action on the all-weather.
