Castle Genie didn't take to fast ground at Wexford and was well beaten and Claragh Native, who finished in front of him, has the better chance as he won't mind the conditions. Silver Canyon has yet to reach a place over fences and may not quite have the experience for this, a remark that also applies to Boxer Beat, who has had just two starts over fences and is still a maiden after 42 career starts. THE LADY GRANUAILE has conditions to suit as she did at Limerick last time where she gained her first success over fences. She looks well treated here and can complete a quick double as the consistent Edmundo is by no means certain to enjoy the fast going.
