Verdict

The last three renewals have been won by odds-on favourites and though DATOKEPE is unlikely to start such a warm order he looks a nice prospect and can recoup losses sustained in his two latest starts in good class bumpers here and at Fairyhouse. Dessie Hughes' charge has experience over timber having made a reasonable debut at Gowran back in April. Big Robert ran well enough on his debut over timber at Listowel to suggest this three-times Flat winner can make a hurdler while Seafield has shown promise between the flags and in bumpers here and at Naas. Sensational Sema started odds-on for his point-to-point debut at Quakerstown in April and duly obliged so it would be no surprise to see him competitive here.
