Timeform on Punches Cross

All Those Years - 14:05 Galway

All Those Years was an impressive winner of a bumper on debut at this course in August and created a good first impression over hurdles when finishing runner-up at Listowel. It looked like a strong maiden hurdle he contested at Listowel, with half the field successful in bumpers, but he shaped well to get within half a length of the winner, drawing six lengths clear of the third. This looks a good opportunity for him to get off the mark in this sphere.

Aa Bee See - 14:35 Galway

Aa Bee See capitalised on a reduced mark on his return from a four-month break at Roscommon last week, winning very readily in the style of one capable of following up. He has been hit with a 12lb rise for that success but is clearly in excellent heart and is difficult to oppose on the back of such an authoritative victory.

Punches Cross - 16:50 Galway

Punches Cross shaped well when wearing blinkers for the first time at Listowel last month, finishing fourth but leaving the impression he could have been closer with a clear run. That wasn't the first time he's given a hint he's well handicapped, and the return of Mark Walsh in the saddle is a positive (both wins achieved under the rider).
