Early Bird – 24th April

4:20 Punchestown – Vision Des Flos

Probably my last go on this horse unless we get a result. However, there are reasons to be confident here back on better ground and back to the meeting where it was so impressive, having taking the bumper here last year. Also, I feel they have put a pacemaker in with Beyond The Law who has front run before though all of its form is over further. With a pacemaker however it gives a better chance for Vision Des Flos to settle having been notably keen at Aintree just 11 days ago. I still believe this horse is capable of going close even in this company and can show that here.

2:15 Exeter – Point And Shoot

Second under this jockey over course and distance last week in a stronger race than this. Gets to compete off the same mark, this looks an excellent opportunity to add to its single career win. Betting pretty weak for the opposition so with conditions to suit it should go well.
