Verdict

Templemore Dream has to concede weight all round after her victory at Wexford where she just got up on very heavy ground over the minimum trip. She may find GENEVA BARRACKS has just too much pace for her as Martin Brassil's charge, a fortunate winner at Down Royal in March, looked to be travelling well for much of the race on his return to hurdling here last month but found a big weight against him. Synopsis hasn't shown much over hurdles but won on the Flat on heavy going last month and looks a threat but Alcander, who showed some potential over timber last season, has been running moderately on the level.
