When is the John Durkan 2023? Punchestown date, start time, runners and betting


The John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase is the second Grade 1 of the season over fences in Ireland.

Galopin Des Champs claimed last year’s renewal en route to victory in the Cheltenham Gold Cup and Willie Mullins’ stable star is set to kick off his campaign over the intermediate trip at Punchestown once again.

It looks far from a penalty kick, however, as Galopin Des Champs was beaten by Fastorslow in April’s season-ending Punchestown Gold Cup and Martin Brassil’s emerging force is likely to take his place in the line-up.

You can run the rule over our antepost John Durkan odds on the Paddy Power website and Paddy Power app, otherwise all the key details about this year’s renewal can be found below.

John Durkan 2023 betting

John Durkan Memorial Punchestown Chase odds are on paddypower.com and prices for the leading contenders can be seen on our snazzy widgets below.

Galopin Des Champs is the favourite with Paddy Power for the John Durkan as last season’s Cheltenham Gold Cup winner prepares to make his seasonal reappearance.

Fastorslow is next in our early betting as the Punchestown Gold Cup winner bids to confirm the form of that victory.

Blue Lord is also prominent in our antepost market as the Grade 1 scorer bids to bounce back from sub-par displays at the spring festivals.

*Odds quoted on the widget are Future Racing / Antepost prices which means that if your selection does not run in the race for whatever reason – you will lose your stake under traditional Antepost rules
