Form & Verdict

Very progressive after joining Joseph O'Brien last year and this race, off a mark of 71, was one of her three handicap victories; followed up at the Galway festival and creditable placed efforts afterwards in a premier handicap at the Curragh and a Listed contest at Galway; best with an ease but handles good; not a great record fresh and first run for eight months.

Form & Verdict

Debut winner over 1m at the Curragh in September and not disgraced in a Listed race back there on final start at two; hasn't made much impression in conditions/stakes company this term including when stepped up to to this sort of trip at Navan (beaten 11l) last month; nonetheless, looks a big player here with headgear now fitted for handicap bow.

Form & Verdict

C&D winner at this meeting a year ago and gained second Flat win at Tipperary last month; also won over hurdles during the winter; plenty to like but up in grade a good bit and likely to find a couple of these rivals too classy.

Form & Verdict

Debut winner at Gowran in 2019 and Listed-placed at the same venue the following year when she was campaigned at a high level; showed very little on the Flat or over hurdles last year and same story on most recent outing on the level back at Gowran; now with fourth trainer; trying a longer trip and by some way the outsider of the quartet.
