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

"He doesn't have to find too much to take this, especially when you consider that there's more to come."

Timeform on Discordantly

Josies Orders - Punchestown 13:45

Enda Bolger is the undisputed king of the cross country scene, and Josies Orders is one of his greatest allies. Indeed, he produced a career best to win a cross country event at Cheltenham in November, before building on that to finish third in a similar event at Cheltenham a month later. Josies Orders is one of the big contenders for the cross country race at the Festival next month, and he's fancied to win this today.

Discordantly - Punchestown 14:50

Discordantly posted two solid efforts to finish third in maiden company at Cork and Navan last month, and the latter of those runs was a career best. He's progressing with each outing, and it's interesting that he stays in maiden company here, considering he gave the firm impression that he would be well suited to handicap company last time out. He doesn't have to find too much to take this, especially when you consider that there's more to come. As such, he's taken to win this.

Impact Factor - Punchestown 15:50

Impact Factor has caught the eye on a couple of occasions in his six starts over fences to date, and while he's still a maiden in this sphere, he's been progressing really well, and produced an excellent effort to finish second in a particularly warm contest at Gowran Park last month. This race is far calmer, and looks a good opportunity for Impact Factor to open his account.
