"...there is plenty more to come and he is the one to beat..."

Timeform on A Wave of The Sea

NOTEBOOK - 13:55 Punchestown

Henry de Bromhead has won this race twice in the last three years with Some Plan and Petit Mouchoir, so likes to use this race for some of his better chasing prospects, and his representative Notebook is of obvious interest on his first start over fences. He showed useful form over hurdles, signing off for the campaign by finishing second to Gardens of Babylon at the Punchestown Festival, and he appeals as the type to make an even better chaser.

A WAVE OF THE SEA - 15:00 Punchestown

The Joseph O'Brien-trained A Wave of The Sea finished an eye-catching second on his hurdles debut at Listowel and should be difficult to beat with the benefit of that experience under his belt. He had shown fairly useful form on the Flat and took to hurdling well at the first attempt, shaping as if he might have won had he been asked for his effort sooner. There is plenty more to come and he is the one to beat.

SIXSHOOTER - 16:05 Punchestown

Sixshooter won both starts in bumpers and appeals as a good prospect over hurdles this season. He stayed on powerfully to score at Leopardstown on his debut, in a race which has worked out nicely, and he showed improved form to strike at the Punchestown Festival, digging deep under pressure to prevail. He looks to have plenty of stamina, so starting off over 2½m looks a good move, and can take this en route to better things.
