T: Henry De Bromhead

Lightly raced pace-setting 6yo with untapped potential, having only her third start when second in the mares' novice hurdle at last year's Festival; built on a promising chasing debut when routing a thin field at Cork (2m1f, soft) in November; beaten at odds-on in Grade 2 mares' event over the same C&D next time but she's been freshened up since and would be dangerous if getting into a rhythm in front.

Runner-up in the mares novice hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival last season; needed the run at Galway on her chase debut and showed the benefit of that when a most impressive winner from the front in a C&D beginners chase last month (Sayce Gold a distant third); jumps really well and improvement is still likely; should take some beating here.

Grade 2 winner over hurdles and as novice chaser (good and soft); had looked as if his best days were behind him but another wind surgery seems to have done the trick and he was springheeled when winning the Grand Annual at Cheltenham (2m, heavy); speedy type who should be just as effective on this sharp track and a 7lb higher mark is chickenfeed on old form.
