I have some great rides to look forward on the opening day of the Punchestown festival, it’s a brilliant week and I can’t wait for it to get underway.

My knowledge of hunter chase form is limited so I’ll just be watching on with for the first race, but I’ll be in action in the second race, the Grade 1 novice hurdle over two miles.

Wille saddles four of the six runners and I’ve stuck with Klassical Dream, who was so impressive in the Supreme Novices’ Hurdle at Cheltenham.
