Harry Skelton: Punchestown Festival Preview
Fresh from being crowned 2020/21 Champion Jump Jockey, Grosvenor Sport ambassador Harry Skelton heads to Ireland for the 2021 Punchestown Festival – and it’s gonna be a cracker.
Although the Cheltenham Festival didn’t quite to go plan for the Skeltons, they do have one big Grade 1 hope here in the shape of Nube Negra. A spirited second at Prestbury Park, Harry is hoping he can go one better than a month ago in this Champion Chase against Allaho and Chacun Pour Soi.
Many of the stars of Cheltenham will be in action such as Honeysuckle, Gold Cup-winning Minella Indo, Monkfish and Envoi Allen in a hotly anticipated head-to-head. We could go on.
