Puntal (foaled 1996) is a National Hunt racehorse, who won the Betfred Gold Cup in 2004 and who ran in five consecutive Grand Nationals from 2003 to 2007 with limited success. He was formally trained in France before moving to Martin Pipe in 2002. Puntal is now trained by Martin's son David Pipe.
In the 2006 Grand National Puntal overcame a 484 day absence to finish a very creditable 6th, his best finish in the historic race to date.
He finished in 8th place in the 2007 Grand National, where his high odds of 100/1 fell to 50/1 just before the race started.
After a poor run at the 2009 Cheltenham Festival, his owner decided it was time to retire Puntal from racing.
