Friends First Cross Country Chase
Bless The Wings was a fine third in the Grand National at Aintree earlier in the month, so if Gordon Elliott's raider can build on that run then has to be a leading contender for this prize, but the likes of Josies Orders and Cantlow will be flying the Enda Bolger flag, and have superb form in these sort of races.
Auvergnat is arguably Bolger's premier challenger for this race, and has to be respected, while White Arm and Ballyboker Bridge add more depth to what is a fascinating renewal on day three of the Punchestown Festival.
