Cooper looking forward to Punchestown Festival this week
TRALEE jockey Bryan Cooper will bid to cap a memorable season for himself at Punchestown this week when the current national hunt season comes to an end on Saturday
The champion jockey and trainer for the season will be crowned at the end of the season, along with the champion conditional jockey, which looks nailed on for Newcastlewest's Mark Enright, who has had a tremendous year.
Speaking to Bryan Cooper on Sunday evening, he said ''nothing has been finalised as yet, particularly the handicaps, and many other races.
"I hope to ride a few of my Cheltenham horses, Lyreen Legend, Beneficient, and hopefully First Lieutenant, along with Art of Logistics, Captain Arcaeus, and Sea Food, and as of now they would all have each way chances in their respective races.
"It should be a great week at Punchestown, hugely competitive racing, and riding a winner there would be a big bonus and a great end to the season."
