WATCHING BRIEF

NEAREST THE PIN was turned over at short odds at Punchestown on Wednesday, but he remains a decent prospect.

Toppled by a fair sort in Days Hotel, he was much less suited to the heavy going than the winner, and he beat the rest well, having jumped soundly.

A reserve at Wexford tomorrow, Tony Martin's lightly-raced six-year-old should continue to progress over fences, while he also still has the option of reverting to hurdles off a favourable mark. It won't be long before he wins again.
