There's a good card at Punchestown on Thursday

Timeform have identified three horses worth backing at Punchestown on Thursday.

"Much Wants More enjoys a nice swing in the weights with King Leon today and is taken to reverse the form."

Punchestown 14:45 - Whatever It Takes

Whatever It Takes is back down to his last winning mark over hurdles and arrives here on the back of a Flat success, so could well be the answer in what looks an open contest. Omega Springs and Rock On Bach head the list of dangers, but Whatever It Takes looked better than ever when scooting four and a half lengths clear at Dundalk, and he is capable of building on that good work back over hurdles.

Punchestown 15:55 - The Game Changer

The Game Changer enhanced his already-impressive record over fences when landing a Grade 3 at Tipperary 11 days ago, and he gets the nod to continue on his upward curve. The Game Changer was a smart handicap hurdler, and he has looked even better over fences, winning five of his seven starts as a chaser. He sets the standard and should prove difficult to beat.


Punchestown 17:05 - Much Wants More

Much Wants More finished behind King Leon at Clonmel last time but he gave the impression that he should have finished closer as he was set plenty to do, doing well to finish as close as he did in the end. Much Wants More enjoys a nice swing in the weights with King Leon today and is taken to reverse the form.
