0-6 but not beaten far in maiden hurdles on her last couple of starts; 237-day absence to defy here though and this is tougher.

Looked nothing out of the ordinary before convincingly beating Cheltenham runner-up Pink Legend in a 3m Listed event at Perth last week; almost certainly wants further but not to be underestimated after that performance.

Galvin

J: Davy Russell

Got the better of A Plus Tard when staying on strongly at Leopardstown in December but that rival reversed the form emphatically in the Gold Cup at Cheltenham; he's a thorough stayer and will be seen to best effect if they go a good pace here, which could happen with Allaho likely to go off in front.

Smart 2m chaser who won Grade 3 events at Naas in November (beating Andy Dufresne) and February; finished third in the Tingle Creek and the Ladbrokes Dublin Chase in between, beaten almost 18l behind Chacun Pour Soi on the latter occasion; failed to stay 2m4f in the Melling Chase at Aintree.

Won Ayr bumper 12 months ago on sole start for Stuart Crawford; narrow winner of a maiden hurdle at Thurles in November, narrowly denied in Naas Grade 3 event last month; coped as well as could have been expected when third behind Jonbon in Aintree Grade 1; however, finished 19l behind El Fabiolo, an inferior stablemate of Dysart Dynamo and Sir Gerhard.

Talented mare is 3-5 over hurdles, notably 2m4f mares' Listed success here in December and following month in valuable 2m2f Leopardstown mares' handicap, coming late in strongly-run affair; below best however in Grade 2 Ryanair Mares' Novices' at Cheltenham, bit too keen and challenge petering out approaching the last on softer ground; major chance on overall form though.

Acts on soft; extraordinary last-to-first win in the 3m2f Kim Muir at Cheltenham last March suggested stamina reserves which have not yet been exploited (she's been campaigned at 2m4f/2m5f since) but the jumping problems she exhibited that day, including with a marked tendency to jump out to her right, are far from resolved; cheekpieces enlisted.

Won bumper on sole start for Stuart Crawford, then followed up (narrowly) in maiden hurdle at Thurles seven months later; went very close in Naas Grade 3 on return from another break and looks open to further progress; however, others have better form as things stand.
