Galopin Des Champs is headed for Punchestown, but its owner Turley is still dreaming

Audrey Turley, the owner, revealed that Galopin Des Champs is set to compete in the prestigious Punchestown Gold Cup following the impressive victory of her horse, Got Glory, at Naas.

Galopin Des Champs aims to replicate last year's victory in the Cheltenham Gold Cup. However, the talented horse faced defeat at the hands of Fastorslow in the Punchestown Festival. However, the talented horse will strive to achieve the remarkable feat once again at the beginning of the upcoming month.

The eight-year-old horse trained by Willie Mullins once again showcased its dominance at Prestbury Park, displaying an impressive burst of speed as it galloped up the hill to secure a victory. With Paul Townend in the saddle, the horse triumphed over Gerri Colombe by a notable margin of three and a half lengths.

Turley expressed optimism about a potential comeback to Punchestown, stating that it seems to be the plan and that things are looking positive for the horse. Hopefully, everything goes well, and he gets the opportunity to compete.

Recalling the gelding's triumphant second victory in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, she shared with Racing TV: "We're absolutely captivated by it, constantly replaying the moment at home. It's simply irresistible." The greater your viewing experience, the greater your enjoyment.
