cross country chase day five
Josies Orders was just touched off on Thursday, but the Enda Bolger-trained raider is set to try and go one better on Saturday afternoon and will be the one to beat in the first race on the final day of the Punchestown Festival. A classy performer on his day, he will have to get the better of the Willie Mullins-trained The Crafty Butcher, who is sure to prove a lively adversary in the curtain-raiser.
Hurricane Darwin will have to give weight away to all his rivals, while Ballyboker Bridge is a regular in these sort of races, and has to given a second look, while the likes of Blue Templar and Senators Glory add more depth to the race.
