The Horses For Courses report is available to all registered users on a Friday, and it shows what a brilliant record On The Fringe has at Punchestown. He has managed five wins and places (71.43%) from seven races, which has produced level stakes profits of 13.82 and 14.98 respectively.
He is back at Punchestown today in a Hunters Chase looking for his sixth win here.
On The Fringe is now 13 and hasn't been in particularly good form, although he did run well to finish fifth last time out at Aintree. I am hoping that a return to a place he appears to enjoy racing out will bring out the best in him.
Trainer Enda Bolger has a useful long-term strike rate here at Punchestown. Over the past years, he's had 19 winners from 106 runners (17.92%) for an Impact Value of 2.17.
Nina Carberry is riding well and has been among the winners recently. Over the past 30 days, she's had three winners (23.08%) and six places (46.15%) from 13 runners, for level stakes profits of 5.00 and 2.69 respectively and an Impact Value of 2.22. She has also ridden On The Fringe for three of his victories here.
The Instant Expert report shows that On The Fringe is well suited to conditions here today, having three sections of green and coming out the best on this.
Very few of the field have form on today's going which could prove crucial.
The Pace report shows that both Uxizandre and Jimmy The Jetplane are usually ridden from the front and the early lead looks like to be between those two.
On The Fringe is often waited with and I would imagine that Carberry will do something similar with him today.
