Form & Verdict

Has some solid form to her name having finished roughly 4l behind Marine Nationale (form boosted since) in the Grade 1 Royal Bond here in December before finishing 9l behind stablemate and ante post Supreme favourite Facile Vega in another Grade 1 at Leopardstown last month; gets a class drop against her own sex and that makes her the one to beat; shapes like this step up in trip will suit.

Form & Verdict

Won a mares' Listed bumper at Navan prior to finishing runner-up in what looked a decent maiden hurdle at Leopardstown last month; further will suit and she's a player again here up in class but the yard's form is a slight concern.

Dual bumper winner, including in Listed company at Navan last year; some fine runs over hurdles, including second in Grade 3 at Fairyhouse last January; made mistakes on seasonal debut, ending up a remote eighth; has come good on her last two starts; feasible she can sustain upward curve.

Form & Verdict

Cost 260,000GNS following her point win last season and made a winning Rules debut in a bumper at Naas when narrowly landing the odds; improved on that effort when bolting up in a maiden hurdle at Naas last time; more required but will improve for this extra distance.

Fetched 260,000gns after hacking up in an Irish point; only scraped home in a bumper but comfortably beat her 24 rivals in a maiden hurdle at Naas before finishing close up behind Jetara at Fairyhouse (2m2f, soft); moved as well as the front two for much of that latter race, returning to a left-handed track can help and she brings each-way hopes.

6 yo Filly

OR:

Form & Verdict

Progressive mare who has taken her form to a new level over hurdles this term and made it 2-3 over timber with a Listed win in a mares' novice hurdle last month; more to come at this trip but conceding weight to a few of these won't be easy.

Smart flat handicapper with three wins from only five starts, notably making all at Gowran last month; promising enough hurdles debut at Leopardstown last Christmas but took a heavy fall in a Grade 3 at Fairyhouse afterwards, hopefully that hasn't affected her confidence; major player.
