Has been a reliable mare in previous seasons ans looked set for a fine campaign when a long-priced Grade 2 winner at this venue last November; has lost form alarmingly and is now tried with blinkers for the first time.

Can lead; has had a fallow spell since winning a Grade 2 novice at Punchestown in November (2m6f, yielding) and little in her latest two handicap starts (in October and January) suggests she has anything in hand off her current mark.

Form & Verdict

Veteran; one time a high-class hurdler, he had good chase form this season but ran poorly on handicap debut before falling at Tramore when 3s in four-runner race; looks vulnerable at this stage.
