With Shantou Flyer now a non-runner, the field for the Free Festival Upgrade Ticket Offer Hurdle at 1.45 Punchestown has been reduced to six and it's 7/2 chance with Betvictor Jennies Jewel who looks the pick of the runners.

The 7-year-old mare has been a model of consistency for trainer Jarlath Fahey and always tends to run her race. The mare won well in a 12-runner chase on heavy ground at Clonmel in November before putting in a typically solid effort for third in a big-field handicap hurdle at Navan earlier this month. Conditions underfoot should be to her liking and with a weight advantage over the competition, this dual distance winner looks to have a golden opportunity.

Daneking ran below form on last month's Newbury return and has to prove he stays this far, while market leader Bog Warrior certainly has the class, but is a risky proposition at such short odds having pulled-up when last seen in action 6 months ago.

Elsewhere in the field, He'llberemembered switches back to hurdles after  a respectable 11th of 25 in the Troytown Chase as does Sadler's Risk after a below par effort at Fairyhouse, while Blackmail has a lot to do off top-weight after more than a year off.
