Paul Townend previews his ride on Gaillard Du Mesnil on day four of the Punchestown Festival

| 29.04.2021

I have only one ride on Friday on Gaillard Du Mesnil (18:00) who renews rivalry with Bob Olinger again.

It’s hard to see where he is going to make up the seven and a half lengths he was beaten by at Cheltenham. Bob Olinger looked very good and this looks to be his race for the taking, but we will give it a crack.

You can never be afraid of one horse. Gaillard is sure to run his race again but Bob Olinger looks to have the measure of him.

It’s hard to look outside the two of them. N’golo had a good run early on in the year in the Royal Bond in Fairyhouse but he just hasn’t progressed from there.

We have officially 9lb to find with Bob Olinger and we will have our work cut out to do that.
