Notnowcato mare; dam unplaced bumper, sister to bumper and useful 2m4f-2m7f hurdle/chase winner Nataani, half-sister to 2m4f-3m1f hurdle/smart chase winner Patsy Hall; stoutly bred and likely best watched on debut although jockey booking says she deserves a look.

Won Grade 2 novice hurdle at Navan last February; every chance when running out at the last in the Albert Bartlett at Cheltenham; made a low-key chasing debut at Naas when only third behind Grangeclare West; more professional when scoring at this venue, before again finding Grangeclare West too good in Grade 1 Leopardstown event; ideal opportunity here.
