Punchestown bumper winner TIMING'SEVERYTHING made a good start over hurdles when narrowly beaten at Tipperary with the rest nowhere. John Kiely's charge is the one to beat on that evidence. Silken Thomas finished closer when runner-up at Punchestown earlier in the month while better is expected from End of Line having only his third start over timber. Conn Job and Baily Moon are others likely to show some improvement and make most appeal of the remainder.
