Verdict

This looks a very tight handicap though we should get a good run from Little Arrows, whose defeat by Edith Cowan here last week should be boosted by the winner in the previous race. Pepparpot is up 6lb for a battling success under a fine ride from Katherine O'Brien at Gowran and there should be more to come from Mags Mullins' charge. House Limit, who was 4l back in third, has been in fine form on faster ground subsequently and would be a threat to all if the going remains on the quick side. TRULY GENIUS has yet to win a race on Turf but his two most recent starts, both when runner-up to Knight's Templar, give him every chance here and he gets the vote to end that losing streak.
