Robbie Wilders’ top play at Punchestown

Robbie Wilders’ top play at Punchestown

In his recent run in the Mersey Novices’ Hurdle, he showed strong enthusiasm in a slowly-paced race, following his defeat by the exceptional Ballyburn in the Gallagher at Cheltenham. I have a hunch that jockey Danny Mullins might consider returning to front-running tactics, which could be beneficial given the shorter distance of this upcoming race. When previously employed, such tactics almost secured a victory in the Lawlor’s of Naas for Ile Atlantique; only to falter at the end over 2m4f.

According to Racing Post Ratings, this effort is considered on par with the Supreme success of the highly favored Slade Steel. It’s worth noting that unexpected outcomes are not uncommon at Punchestown, and the potential of King Of Kingsfield, whose trainer Gordon Elliott previously won with a 20-1 shot in 2022, should not be overlooked.
