Our top tip for the Punchestown meeting is  THE BAY BIRCH (IRE) which goes in the 2.55 Handicap Chase over an extended 2m6f for trainer Francis J Flood and jockey Mark Enright.

Under the bottom weight of 9-11, this one is just 11/1 for the race, making for a fine each-way opportunity.

We liked the form shown the time before last at Fairyhouse, under similar conditions. A repeat of that run, forgiven a slightly lower performance last time out, and a place is on the cards. Has what it takes to win this one, too.
