novice hurdle 2m
Gordon Elliott's Vengeful was a narrow winner at Thurles on his debut, and will look to follow that success up on Friday afternoon in the penultimate race on day four of the Punchestown Festival, but he will face a whole host of lively challengers for this prize including the Willie Mullins-trained duo of Antey and Causey Arch.
Joseph O'Brien's Shady Operator has shaped with promise and has to be considered here, while the likes of Deal D'estruval and Roaring Bull add more depth to what could be a race that throws up a name for the future.
