NEWS: Supasundae to defend Punchestown crown
on 15 April 2019
The Jessica Harrington-trained nine-year-old is looking to add to his Grade 1 tally

Jessica Harrington is looking forward to seeing Supasundae defend his crown in the BETDAQ Champion Hurdle at Punchestown.

The nine-year-old doubled his Grade 1 tally in the two-mile contest last season – having landed the Irish Champion Hurdle at Leopardstown earlier in the year.

Supasundae has run with credit in several top-level contests this season in races ranging from two to three miles, and claimed a deserved first victory of the campaign on his latest appearance in the Aintree Hurdle – beating dual Champion Hurdle hero Buveur D’Air.

Despite his versatility regarding distance, Supasundae has been limited to just one entry at this year’s Punchestown Festival – and could again meet Nicky Henderson’s Buveur D’Air, as well as old rivals Apple’s Jade and Sharjah – on May 3rd.

“Supasundae has come out of his race in Aintree really well, and the plan now is to go to Punchestown,” said Harrington.

“He’s only entered in the Champion Hurdle, so I wouldn’t be tempted to run him over three miles.”
