Well held by re-opposing Mutasarref when runner-up in a four-runner contest at Naas last time; hard to see him reversing that form on the same terms here and probably needs a career best.

Off the mark at the 14th attempt from a mark of 56 on her penultimate start; blew her handicap mark when finishing ninth (beaten roughly 3l) at Galway festival in Listed company; it would be a big surprise if she wasn't flattered by that.
