Never counted on debut at Leopardstown over Christmas but did catch the eye when making late inroads in 2m maiden won by better-fancied stablemate Deep Cave; can be expected to come on for that and this longer trip could suit.

Classy mare on the level, career highlight when winning Group 1 Prix du Cadran in very testing conditions in 2020; not far off that form when winning Group 3 Sagaro Stakes last April on quick ground but well below best all four subsequent outings at the top level; very interesting now switched to hurdles and if avoiding serious jumping errors could take some beating (holds an Albert Bartlett entry).

High-class Flat stayer with Group 1 honours on the board and the recent rain is a blessing; however, has left it late to go hurdling and will need to jump with greater conviction than at Punchestown (2m4f, soft) where joined on the line by Ladybank; drop to 2m is a further cause for concern.

Just 2-9 over hurdles but is unexposed as a stayer; returned to form at Musselburgh (good to soft) four weeks ago, proving suited by the step up to 3m and scoring by 6l; may have more to offer at this trip and holds major claims even with 3lb penalty.

Bolted up on bumper debut at Gowran (heavy) last season for Barry Fitzgerald; just okay efforts both attempts hurdling for current yard, at Galway and when well beaten third in ordinary enough 2m2f Fairyhouse mares' contest 21 days ago; needs to improve on that to win a maiden, this step up in trip could bring about improvement.

Dual bumper winner (including here) has been nonetheless proved expensive to follow, beaten favourite on both attempts hurdling this season; chasing home a clear-cut winner at Gowran and no match from two out with a 20l all-the-way winner at Fairyhouse; upped in trip here and every chance of those with hurdles experience.
