Verdict

Ephorus continues to go well despite climbing the weights and produced another fine effort when runner-up to Ghareer at Leopardstown on Sunday. He's been raised another 2lb for that run and may be in the handicapper's grip, a remark that also applies to Lucky Spring, who has struggled since scoring at Navan in December. The Buck is better over further so SENSATIONAL SEMA is given a tentative vote on his handicap debut as he has been noted making late headway on his last two starts in maiden company. Both he and Whatever Jacksays are point-to-point winners and the latter looks a threat as he has also shown ability in maidens and looks on a fair enough mark.
