Timeform's SmartPlays team pick out the best bets from Punchestown on New Year's Eve.

"Up For Review looked potentially smart when making a winning start over hurdles at Fairyhouse last month and, open to improvement, he may prove hard to beat here."

Young Palm - 12:35 Punchestown

Young Palm posted his best effort over fences when third at Doncaster last time, and with this shorter trip likely to suit, is taken to land the spoils. Naas winner Rolling Rocket looks the chief danger with Sir Abbot next best.

Noble Emperor - 13:05 Punchestown

Noble Emperor was easy to back and failed to complete on his latest outing over fences, but he remains relatively low-mileage, and, in a tricky event gets the nod back over smaller obstacles. Texas Jack and Embracing Change may well give him most to think about.

Up For Review - 14:05 Punchestown

Up For Review
looked potentially smart when making a winning start over hurdles at Fairyhouse last month and, open to improvement, he may prove hard to beat here. Nambour made a good impression last time and should be suited by this step up in trip.
