Smart hurdler at best, 12l runner-up to stablemate Concertista in the Mares' Novices' Hurdle in 2020; later spent time with Paul Nicholls and Fergal O'Brien; started chasing career in Cork Grade 2 in November, a race won by Concertista; sets a high standard now following 8l second to Jeremys Flame at Naas.

Career best when fourth in the Irish National last time; fair to assume the improvement came from the step up in trip that day so she's probably vulnerable back at 2m5f.

Useful mare in bumpers early in her career and won a maiden hurdle at Galway in October 2020; made a pleasing return to form in a handicap hurdle at Cork in December, made most of the running and finished a clear second; not a bad effort at Navan last time; appeals as a mare who could take well to chasing, but this a tough introduction.

130-rated mare whose chance is principally based on her 4l second to Concertista in a Grade 2 contest at Limerick in December; also performed with credit when fourth in a Thurles Grade 2; run may have come too soon, and opposition was very demanding in any case, when a remote fourth behind Stattler at Naas ten days ago.

Fair hurdler at her best, though found wanting when raised in class after her Punchestown maiden win two seasons ago; started off promisingly over hurdles when 25l second behind the top-class Energumene at Gowran in November 2020; interesting not only for that but for her background in point-to-points, a four-time winner and twice second from six starts.
