Timeform pick out three bets from Punchestown on Wednesday.


Rock On Barney - Punchestown 15:30

Rock On Barney produced a career-best when second on his penultimate outing at Cork and again ran well when filling the same position back there last time. That form leaves him 2 lb clear of the field on Timeform ratings here and, with the possibility of more to come over this longer trip, Rock On Barney is fancied to see off the attentions of She'llbeallright and can belatedly open his account under Rules.

Freeway Space - Punchestown 16:00

Freeway Space ran as well as ever when second on her most recent outing at Thurles, keeping on well under pressure in the closing stages and simply finding a useful prospect too good on the day. She would appear to hold obvious claims if reproducing that level of form in what doesn't appear the strongest race of its kind here and can get off the mark over hurdles with a defeat of the lightly-raced Just Janice.

Perfect Man - Punchestown 16:35

Perfect Man showed improved form when making a successful handicap debut at Thurles two weeks ago, travelling smoothly into contention as the field jumped four-out and finding plenty to forge clear of a similarly unexposed sort in the closing stages. He remains potentially very well-treated from just 7 lb higher in the weights and shades the vote from the thriving Returntovendor in a competitive race.
