Verdict
FRANCIN is slowly getting the hang of things after a long time off the track and comes here on the back of a useful performance last time out at Leopardstown: If showing more improvement he looks to have an excellent chance of breaking his maiden tag. If he fails to improve, then The Very Man could take advantage given his consistent profile and experience. His latest effort was solid enough and a reproduction of that form should see him go close. Pure Genius is well respected and is another who should run a fair race if continuing his progression.
