Punchestown Festival Starts Today
The final National Hunt Festival starts today at Punchestown.
Something of an anti- climax with Don Cossack and Thistlecrack having to be withdrawn
Dawn Cossack suffered the old Gold Cup jinx- sustaining a serious tendon injury at exercise and could miss next year's Gold Cup.
Day 1 still features Vautour and Yorkhill
If you are looking for a better value bet - have an each way bet on Automated in the first handicap hurdle.
