Verdict

PURE GENIUS has shown enough on his two hurdles appearances to suggest he will make a capable hurdler in time and given the lack of strong opposition he is the selection especially if he is allowed to dominate from the front. Ennemi Public ran well enough on his latest start at the end of January and a repeat of that effort should see him go close for leading stable. Lynwood Gold was doing her best work in the closing stages in a recent race at Fairyhouse. That came on the back of a fair break and he should be more ready here.
  1. Pure Genius
