Form & Verdict
Fairyhouse bumper winner is now 0-4 hurdling, promising enough Clonmel debut last winter but hasn't progressed, slipping up on downhill stretch after two out when short of room over C&D latest; can't rule out all the same in an ordinary enough mares' maiden.

Form & Verdict
Narrowly beaten in Kilbeggan bumper and has shaped nicely in two maiden hurdle runs over C&D, bad mistake at last on latest when looking to be going as well as any proving very costly; big player if avoiding such an error this time and reopposes both Trendy Lady (second) and Neat Locality (third).
