Verdict

Big Jemmy would have to be considered if getting a run from his reserve spot after a fine comeback at Tramore last month. SAOIRSE DUN had shown virtually nothing before landing a novices' handicap at Naas earlier this month and though a massive 11lb higher he's the type to go on improving and looks capable of winning off higher marks. Sensational Sema was fancied to land a 2m4f handicap at Punchestown last time but probably found the trip just too short and this should be more to his liking. Jolily won a handicap over 3m here last December and his 7lb rise in the weights is wiped out by Martin Burke's claim so he has to be on the short-list along with the very useful hunter Annacarton, who has run well here on his two latest starts.
