Paul Nicholls Takes Feature Race On Day Two At Punchestown

The Gold Cup is going back to the UK.

Paul Nicholls trained a third winner of the Punchestown Gold Cup this evening. 

Sam Twiston Davies led Clan des Obeaux home a length and a half ahead of pre-race favourite Al Boum Photo.

Paul Townend may have missed out on winning the big race of the day, but did stretch his lead over Rachael Blackmore in the race for champion jockey. 

He was aboard 13-to-8 favourite Galopin des Champs for victory in the Grade One, Irish Mirror Novice Hurdle. 

Today’s other Grade One - the Flat Race - was won by the Willie Mullins-trained Kilcruit.
