It's day three of the Punchestown Festival

Timeform's SmartPlays team pick out the best bets on day three of the Punchestown Festival.

"Hurricane Fly and Jezki are the class acts here and there are reasons to believe that both can be effective at this trip."

Uncle Junior - 16:50 Punchestown

Uncle Junior showed he still has plenty to offer when third in the cross country at the Cheltenham Festival and has sound claims of recording his second win in this event. Quantitativeeasing is an obvious threat, with Rivage d'Or and Dogora best of the rest.

Hurricane Fly - 17:30 Punchestown

Hurricane Fly and Jezki are the class acts here and there are reasons to believe that both can be effective at this trip. The head-to-head score between the pair is six-two in Hurricane Fly's favour and Willie Mullins' veteran is taken to record a remarkable 23rd Grade 1 success. Dedigout and Lieutenant Colonel look best of the others.

Pleasant Company - 18:05 Punchestown

Pleasant Company shaped really well having been heavily backed on handicap/stable debut at Fairyhouse three weeks ago, and can prove himself well treated at the second attempt. Rogue Trader and Roll It Out head the list of dangers.
