Stayers Hurdle feature at Punchestown


The battle between Willie Mullins and Gordon Elliott is again to the fore on day 3 of the Punchestown Festival.

Mullins trains favourite Nichols Canyon in the Stayers Hurdle, while his main competition is likely to come from Elliott’s Sutton Place.

That’s off at 5.30 this evening.

The first of a seven-race card this afternoon goes to post at 20-to-4.
