Verdict

SENSATIONAL SEMA made a fair comeback after an absence when a close third at Punchestown so with that under his belt he'll be difficult to beat. Reality Dose was returning from a two-year break when a fine third at Thurles a couple of weeks ago and has to be on the short-list but Character Actor may just be a few pounds high and his best form has been over the minimum trip. Jim Bowie pulled up lame when last seen in January and could need the run and Limerick Lane is making his handicap debut over fences.
