Form & Verdict

Unbeaten in three Irish starts and added to her growing reputation with a commanding defeat of Malina Girl in a Limerick Grade 2 on her chasing debut; jumped impeccably that day apart from the last two fences when out on her own; has the potential to be a top-class chaser and hard to look beyond her here.

High-class mare althoug a touch of an underachiever at the same time; two Listed wins this season at Clonmel (Instit second) and Naas; no real impression in the mares chase at Cheltenham last time; likely to go close in a race lacking much strength in depth.

Chase wins on heavy and yielding; versatile trip-wise and it's hard to fault her second in this race last March (soft) when she looked to have the race won, only to get outstayed by the rallying winner (who is unbeaten over fences); failed to do herself justice on second outing this winter but on song either side of that and looks sure to be in the thick of it.

Won Grade 2 novice chases at Limerick and Thurles last season before a fine second in the Grade 2 Mares' Chase at Cheltenham; ended the season with two defeats, one inflicted by stablemate Instit; avenged that on seasonal debut at Clonmel before being trounced by Riviere D'Etel; on these terms, it should be close now between the pair if she is restored to form.

Consistent in handicap company last season and stepped up well to Listed level when third to Party Central at Punchestown in the spring; mixed form so far over fences, well behind Telmesomethinggirl here and no match for Journey With Me at Naas last month; should run her race.

Most progressive staying chaser whose best run came when winning valuable 3m4f Cheltenham premier handicap in November on soft; fell at same venue subsequently but encouraging enough Exeter second last month; trip on the short side for hurdles return but 31lb lower hurdles mark can't be sniffed at with added bonus of rider's claim.

Won the Ulster National (3m4f, soft) last April and ran away with a Grade 3 handicap at Cheltenham (3m3f, soft) in November; also travelling strongly when she fell three out at Cheltenham in December; the problem is her performance in the Classic Chase at Warwick (topweight but favourite) four weeks ago when she made a shortlived effort before four out, before tailing off; big shout if she bounces back.
