Form & Verdict

Lightly raced novice hurdler last season, readily winning Clonmel mares' maiden and highly tried next three outings, showing decent level of form when fourth in 2m4f Grade 1 mares' novice at Fairyhouse; appeared a tad onepaced back at 2m in weaker Listed mares' novice at Punchestown final start; potentially smart chasing recruit although may eventually want further.

Second to Maskada in last season's Grand Annual before landing valuable handicaps at Fairyhouse and this meeting; resumed with victory over Fil Dor at Naas; backed that up with Grade 1 victory over Gentleman De Mee at Leopardstown; 6l in front of Captain Guinness when second in Dublin Chase; lost out to Limerick Lace in mares' race at Cheltenham.

Beaten favourite in Mares' Novice Hurdle in 2022 but found only one too good in the Grand Annual over fences here last March; stiff task in sole 2m4f run, a Grade 1 hurdle in April 2022, but the trip experiment hasn't been repeated, and although she's made progress over fences of late, following a Grade 1 win (soft; has won on good to yielding) with a second to crack two-miler El Fabiolo, her stamina for this is a bigger issue than her talent.

Form & Verdict

135-rated hurdler won Grade 3 mares' novice at Fairyhouse last year; very restricted campaign since however, absent since a pair of creditable efforts chasing last winter at Naas, not too fluent on second occasion; returns from further 10 months' absence and interesting to see what the market makes of her chances relative to same owner's Dinoblue.

Form & Verdict

Point-to-point winner and progressed well over hurdles late summer with 2m4f wins at Downpatrick and Perth; just denied on last month's chasing debut at Fairyhouse (2m) under positive ride, minor late errors not helping her cause; that experience should stand to her here but this looks a much better race.

Dual hurdle winner who is 0-6 as a chaser but has finished runner-up on three of those occasions; pulled up in June latest and left Gordon Elliott for £26,000 in September; stays 2m4f and acts on soft but probably requires a career best.

Form & Verdict

Won Kilbeggan maiden hurdle in April and has been mixing hurdling and chasing of late, best effort yet over fences when second to an odds-on shot at Thurles; well below best at same venue back hurdling on latest on softer ground; likely has it to do here.
