Form & Verdict

Proven Graded performer, finishing second at both Punchestown and Cheltenham last season; last month's comeback run at Limerick some way below her best, but should come on for that and the one to beat albeit over a trip slightly short of her best.

Second to Marie's Rock in Grade 1 event at Cheltenham last year and third to Honeysuckle last month; was getting 9lb and had the advantage of race-fitness when relegation Brandy Love to third here in February; did well to uphold that form at Cheltenham; place chance again.

Second to Marie's Rock in this 12 months ago; warmed up for this year's renewal with a win in a 2m4f Punchestown Grade 3 (yielding) three weeks ago, but Brandy Love was just under 5l behind in third and meets her on 9lb better terms now; this likeable mare looks sure to give her running but this looks a stronger race than last year.

Got off the mark at third time of asking over hurdles with a commanding maiden win at Cork in April (2m3f, heavy) but following month faded tamely on better ground at Killarney when facing considerably stiffer task; front-runner could still have more to offer and not to be ruled out.
