Champion Novice Chase
Monalee looks like being sent off a short priced favourite for the Growise Champion Novice Chase on day one of the Punchestown Festival. It's a competitive affair though with Al Boum Photo coming here off the back of a good win at Fairyhouse over Shattered Love who also runs here. Aintree winner Finian's Oscar comes over from England whilst 4-miler winner at Cheltenham Rathvinden also lines up.
