Irish Racing Yearbook Handicap Steeplechase (Rated 0-116) of £10,500.00 4-y-o plus

2m. 2f. 1st - £7,245.00 2nd - £1,785.00 3rd - £840.00 4th - £525.00 10 Declared Heavy Fine but cold


Formscan By Gary Carson - SENSATIONAL SEMA has been sent off favourite on his last two outings and might get the job done here now. He ran well when third to Mr Goodenough at Punchestown last time and a repeat of that should see him go close. It looked a moderate enough contest in which Limerick Lane was third in at Naas over hurdles last time. It remains to be seen what kind of mark 111 is for him back over fences and the market may prove the best guide to his chances. Jim Bowie has won over hurdles here before and looks interesting on his return to action. He has slipped a few pounds having been pulled up when last seen at Fairyhouse in January but a third placed effort at Navan previously would give him a big chance. Reality Dose and Rakamasi have both run fair enough races recently in moderate contests and could be considered for minor placings.
