Verdict

Amber Knight is 9lb higher than when successful at Down Royal in February and may just need this after a long break. Happy New Year was beaten a very long way at Punchestown last week and hasn't won a race in 20 starts. SENSATIONAL SEMA came in for support at Punchestown at the end of last month and though not quite managing to get there the fact that Ruby Walsh has been booked again suggests he's expected to gain compensation and he's handed the vote. Ponmeword has dropped to a very fair mark nowadays but the fact that he's been placed just once in 20 starts has to be a major negative.
