Race Tip

ENERGUMENE missed Cheltenham due to a muscle injury but can maintain his unbeaten jumps record. He showed top-class potential when easily winning three chases, the latest being at Grade 1 level, with the transition to a sounder surface unlikely to inconvenience him. He beat stablemate Franco De Port at Leopardstown in February and another Willie Mullins runner Janidil also beat Franco De Port when winning a Fairyhouse Grade 1 this month. Janidil lacks Energumene's flashiness and might ideally prefer middle-distances but should nonetheless give the selection a race. Captain Guinness is high-class and a keen-goer but was well beaten by Energumene in January and fell when a close second to him (when Energumene was travelling strongly) at Leopardstown. His third-placing in the Arkle at Cheltenham was good but he is again vulnerable to top-class novices.
