PUNCHESTOWN 3:30 PM BANG BANG ROSIE (IRE) National Hunt Flat Race (Bumper) 2m

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.
