Often placed, but her record of only one win from 24 outings is off-putting at this stage; on the positive side she had plenty of horses behind when eighth in a 26-runner contest at Navan last Saturday

Ran well up to the point of her fall at the last in a Naas maiden won by the progressive Routine Excellence; had finished last of ten in her first handicap, but underlined her transformation when winning in good style at Punchestown; 10lb higher now, but this race looks weak and the jockey-booking is significant

Some early bumper promise for Willie Mullins but hasn't quite built on that as hoped, albeit she ran creditably enough in defeat behind Sir Gerhard in a Leopardstown maiden hurdle last month; quick turnaround if coming here after failing to figure at Fairyhouse on Saturday.

Runner-up in a Punchestown bumper on 2019 debut for Willie Mullins but hasn't come close to matching that form since; eighth of 18 in a maiden hurdle at Leopardstown last month was a respectable run on yard debut and she may come on for that first run in 240 days.
