Baily back for more at Punchestown

Mouse Morris has entered his prolific winner Baily Green in the AGK Displays Craddockstown Novice Chase at Punchestown on Sunday.

The six-year-old has won seven races in a row, including one success over hurdles, and though Morris had intended to give him a break, his amazing constitution means he remains on the go.

However, he is likely to face his toughest task since his winning streak started in May as Jessie Harrington has entered her two smart novices, Oscars Well and Jenari.

Henry de Bromhead's Buckers Bridge also looks a smart prospect, and his stablemate Darwins Fox may also run. Dylan Ross and Twinlight make up the list.

Willie Mullins' Back In Focus may reappear in the Florida Pearl Novice Chase after his sparkling debut over the bigger obstacles at Listowel in September.

His stiffest test may come from Dessie Hughes' Lyreen Legend, also a winner on his chasing bow.

Mullins' Champagne Fever, winner of the major bumpers at the Cheltenham and Punchestown Festivals in the spring, has been entered in a maiden hurdle on the same card.

He is also entered over timber at Cork on the same day and, interestingly, in a beginners chase at Punchestown on Saturday.
