Puncture Resistant Tyres 650b

Trying to find some reasonably puncture resistant 650b tyres up to about 1.5″ or 40mm width.

The ground is quite lumpy with some flint, tore a hole in GK SKs so looking for something that can take a bit more punishment.
Would have gone for Smart Sam Pluss but they dont do a narrow ish in 650b, looking at Marathon Pluss but ideally would like something a bit nobblier.

If anyone has any suggestions would be much appreciated.

From my experience with one set of GKSK out of 4-5 different tires/brands over the same route, the GKSK had the weakest sidewall. I had 3 sidewall punctures in them and none in the others. So I would try any other reasonably priced brand.
