2019 Punchestown Festival - National hunt stars set to sparkle in Ireland

Some of the elite national hunt stars in the UK & Ireland will congregate at the Punchestown Festival in late April as the five-day jumping jamboree will provide a plethora of top class races with some of the stars of the game set to do battle.

With the Cheltenham Festival having provided some memorable moments there are sure to be some winners at that meeting who head to Punchestown to try and end the season with more glory and the Punchestown Gold Cup is sure to attract a host of premier chasers in what is one of the highlights of the meeting.

Punchestown Festival Odds 2019

There are five days of great action for punters to get stuck into with the Punchestown Festival Odds often proving some of the most popular of the entire season. There are a number of grade 1 races through the week and as such they are of course the most popular with punters, while there are also a number of nice supporting races and tough handicaps which can sometimes be where the best value is found.

Of course all the grade 1 races attract the most attention from punters with the Punchestown Gold Cup Odds and the Punchestown Champion Chase Odds perhaps the two most popular races of the week. These races tend to attract some of the big names from both sides of the Irish Sea and the betting will be competitive right up until the tape goes up. Another race which allways captures the imagibation of the punters is the Punchestown Champion Hurdle which has had some top class winners in recent years.

2019 Punchestown Festival Races and Schedule

We have featured nine of the ten Grade one races at the Festival this year. Each race page includes the runners, betting and form guides of the leading contenders and should be looked at before making any bets. The first day of the Festival is Champion Chase Day as the best 2 mile chasers battle it out and we have seen the likes of Big Zeb and Master Minded both take their chance in recent years with Sizing Europe the impressive winner in 2012.

Day 2 at the Punchestown Festival is Punchestown Gold Cup day and it is the Chasers over 3 miles who take centre stage and we are looking forward to another top class field once again in 2017. There are two grade 1 races on Day 3 at Punchestown with the Stayers Hurdle and the Ryanair Novice Chase the highlights on a fantastic card. Day 4 sees the Champion Hurdle take centre stage and that is sure to be a cracker, while the final day of the Punchestown Festival is always a popular one on a Saturday with the main race being the Champion 4YO Hurdle as we look for one or two stars of the future.

Punchestown Festival Tips

The Punchestown Festival is a long week of racing and as such offers punters some great opportunities to have a successful week in betting terms. There are a number of Grade 1 races for punters to enjoy as well as plenty of nice handicap races which can offer some great value for those who study the form. The Punchestown Festival Tips will be running right throughout the week as we try to help punters pick out as many winners as possible. Tom Lee from RTE will be on course throughout the week and and he will be giving us his extra special tips each day from Punchestown, he is well worth following as he has great experience of the Festival.

One of the major tips of the Punchestown Festival is of course to follow the trainers in form and over the past few years the man to follow at Punchestown has been the great Willie Mullins. He is a trainer that has strength in depth so as well as having the big name horses in the Championship races he will also always have a strong hand in each of the handicap and Bumper races.

Punchestown Festival Runners

There are 36 races at the Punchestown Festival and the Runners for each race will be declared closer to the time with the 48 declaration stage the crucial one for punters as they look to make their bets for the week. The handicaps especially at the Festival tend to have big fields so it can be important to study the runners before each race and they will be made available to punters as when they are released.
