Form & Verdict

Picked up plenty of black-type over fences before making the breakthrough when too good for Dolcita at Naas in January; good second behind Ballyshannon Rose in a Grade 2 Mares Novice Chase here on most recent start; solid claims.

Gained sixth win over fences when beating Hurricane Georgie by just over a length at Limerick and meets that rival on the same terms; won Naas Grade 3 and Listed contest for mares at Huntingdon last season and not disgraced, although outclassed, when sixth in the Mares Chase at Cheltenham; her new mark leaves her only 1lb wrong at these weights with Easy Game and she's in a good place at the moment.

A 9yo who is in her third season of chasing but has improved this winter and a clearcut win over Zambella at Huntingdon in January (2m4f, good to soft; also acts well on soft) showed her in a good light; the likely good pace will suit and she has a better chance than most.

Form & Verdict

Smart hurdler at best, 12l runner-up to stablemate Concertista in the Mares' Novices' Hurdle in 2020; form took a nosedive for Paul Nicholls and Fergal O'Brien; started chasing career in Cork Grade 2 in November on her return to this yard before chasing home Jeremys Flame in a mares' beginners chase at Naas; built on that effort to run out a convincing winner at Fairyhouse last time and arrives here in top form.

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.

Best form on soft; three chase wins at about 2m5f in 2022 but at a lesser level and she was again no real match for Jeremys Flame, who has improved since, at Thurles last February; looks to be flying too high in this company.
