5.45 www.punchestown.com Maiden Hurdle 2m170y

Analyst's Verdict:
Cook Islands looks interesting on his hurdling debut for Joseph O'Brien and will go close if getting the trip, while Leomar has enough experience to chase home the selection. Share The Honour could be interesting if the market speaks in his favour while Coldamour arrives with decent bumper form.

Timeform Top Rated:

6.15 Punchestown For Events Mares Maiden Hurdle 2m170y

Analyst's Verdict:
Denham Sound has some acceptable placed form and can take this from Miss Sassie for the four-year-olds, leaving GI Jayne and the interesting Dawn In The Park to fight it out for the minor placings.

6.45 Panoramic Restaurant Handicap Hurdle 2m170y

Analyst's Verdict:
Emily Square ran her best race over hurdles last time and will appreciate the better going. She may have just about enough ability to see off topweight Sports Barrow in receipt of 12 lb, while Analyse That could run into a place with luck in running.

7.15 La Touche Restaurant Rated Novice Hurdle 2½m80y

Analyst's Verdict:
Sword Fighter gets weight from all his rivals and can make that count. Clara Sorrento is not passed over easily and is a serious danger, while Miss Mardan could be the one for the minor honours.

139 1. CLARA SORRENTO Noel Meade B. J. Cooper
138 6. SWORD FIGHTER Joseph Patrick O'Brien M. P. Walsh
137 3. MISS MARDAN Sean Byrne M. J. Bolger

7.45 Adare Manor Opportunity Maiden Hurdle 2½m80y

Analyst's Verdict:
Goose Man may just have the form edge here albeit a small one, and can come home in front of Classic Place. Sharps Choice has to be seen as a danger from the Willie Mullins stable but may have to settle for third.

129p 5. GOOSE MAN Tom J. Taaffe D. Robinson (2)
128 8. SHARPS CHOICE W. P. Mullins N. M. Kelly (4)

8.15 Punchestown For Events Handicap Hurdle 2½m80y

Analyst's Verdict:
Triolet caught the eye when second at Down Royal with the first two clear of the rest of the field and ought to do even better now. Broughton's Star could be the one to chase him home, with Emigrated chosen for third ahead of the improving Broder.

Timeform Top Rated:
118 5. TRIOLET Colin A. McBratney Mr N. McParlan (3)

8.45 Racing Again May 31st (Pro/Am) I.N.H. Flat 2m170y

Analyst's Verdict:
Los Alamos put in an eye catching effort when a close up third on his Down Royal debut and can make the most of that experience to come home in front. Vocarium looks decent enough and can carry his penalty into second while Texie Rexie may sneak into third at a bigger price.

Timeform Top Rated:
119 1. VOCARIUM Peter Fahey Mr J. J. Codd
118p 6. LOS ALAMOS Joseph Patrick O'Brien Mr P. W. Mullins
