Lightly-raced filly; landed a 1m5f Leopardstown maiden before running well in a handicap at this venue; good run on seasonal bow when third at Gowran 23 days ago (1m6f, good) and is sure to relish the step up in trip; can go well.

Took a strong handicap in good style at Leopardstown (soft to heavy) in February 2021; no impact in December in his next two hurdle races but his fading sixth of 24 at Leopardstown (on yielding; same race he won last term) on latest outing was rather more positive; needs a big career best but all five of his handicap hurdles have been at 3m and trying 2m5f is interesting.

Eight-time winner and very good on his day; winner over hurdles at last year's Punchestown festival as well as finishing fourth in the Ebor behind Sonnyboyliston; is capable of having a say but has a 236-day absence to overcome and this is competitive.
