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.

  1. i am not sure what happened to the concept of value betting here! I went to the bookies at lunchtime and watch Sprint Sacre sprint to the finish line! I kept my tenner in my pocket. A return of £1.43 on my tenner did not whet the appetite. Looking forward to a return to form. I think it one of those periods of drawdown, we look forward to getting over our hurdle rates!
