Timeform on Blue Sari

Timeform pick out their three best bets from Punchestown on Saturday...

Moon Over Germany - 13:25 Punchestown

Moon Over Germany should improve for this drop back in trip after struggling to get home over 1m4f at Tipperary last month. He shaped as though still in good form on that occasion however, and will be hard to beat if stripping fitter for the run. He has form on testing ground so the conditions will not be a worry, while the booking of Mark Walsh is another positive.

Blue Sari - 14:35 Punchestown

Picked up by J.P. McManus after storming clear at Gowran on debut, Blue Sari went close to making it back-to-back victories in the Cheltenham Champion Bumper before going lame late on. He rates as a most exciting prospect on hurdles debut following an eight-month break and there is plenty to like about his chances.

Treacysenniscorthy - 15:10 Punchestown

Treacysenniscorthy gave the impression that all wasn't 100% with him when third at Tipperary last month, but he travelled as well as any in the race and could be worth another chance. He sprung a large surprise over fences when defying odds of 50/1 to score at Listowel before being reverted back to hurdles and merits consideration here, particularly with claimer Kevin Brouder taking 5 lb off his back.
