One of my biggest wins of the Cheltenham Festival was Champagne Fever which we tipped up here at 7/1.
We won't get anything like that price today but I'm going to re-invest today as Champagne Fever bids to win the Herald Novice Hurdle on day 1 of the Punchestown Festival.
Supreme Novices Hurdle winners have a good record in this race as do horses trained by Willie Mullins.
This is a sharper track than Cheltenham but Champagne Fever is a course winner in a bumper last year.
The next highlight of the day after the Novice Hurdle will be the Boylesport Champion Chase when we get to watch Sprinter Sacre dominate a small field.
I wouldn't normally bet at 1/7 but I will have a bet just so I can watch the race streaming via my Bet 365 account.
