Winner on the Flat; fairly consistent over hurdles this winter and had a tough ask in a maiden hurdle at Thurles last time; this looks far more winnable and should be capable of getting into the shake-up.

Knocking on the door with three consecutive seconds this term before pulling up on testing ground at Limerick over Christmas; freshened up since then and could deliver another bold bid but difficult to know if she has any secrets from the handicapper.

In good form towards the end of last year hitting the crossbar thrice but she's lost her way since and was tailed off at Cork earlier this month (a course she goes well at); would prefer some rain to arrive.
