The best bets of Punchestown Festival day two with our Postcast team
Lee Mottershead, Tony O'Hehir, David Jennings and Paddy Power's Tom Nugent with tips from all eight races on Day Two of the Punchestown Festival 2019.
On the show:
- The panel start by trying to unravel the 25-runner Handicap Hurdle that opens the card, with surprisingly strong selections.
- David Jennings has been backing Paloma Blue all season, but he is looking elsewhere in the Louis Fitzgerald Hotel Hurdle. Will Tony O'Hehir make him regret turning his back?
- The feature race on the card is the Coral Punchestown Gold Cup and the panel all agree that it's between the Mullins trio of Al Boum Photo, Kemboy and Bellshill.
