Form & Verdict

Won twice over hurdles in France including a mares' Listed race at Auteuil last season; promising yard debut here in December when runner-up to Lossiemouth and was a bit too keen early on her return from 240 days off; stuck to her task well though and it's possible that she can get closer to her stablemate this time.

Unlucky not to have her unbeaten record intact; won the Triumph at Cheltenham last season before landing the Champion Four Year Old Hurdle at this meeting and even better form this campaign, bolting up in the International Hurdle on Cheltenham Trials Day before a facile success when stepped up in trip for the Mares' Hurdle with all four of these rivals in behind; wouldn't be out of place in a Champion Hurdle and return to quicker ground here is fine; no reason to oppose her.

Should be unbeaten (met trouble when second to Gala Marceau at last year's Dublin Racing Festival) and last season's Triumph winner (on soft) looked a mare of the highest class when easing nearly 10l clear of Love Envoi in a 2m1f Grade 2 back here (good to soft) on her reappearance in January; the trip is an unknown but she'll be very hard to beat if her stamina holds.

Top juvenile hurdler last season, notably winning the Triumph over C&D (soft) and the Punchestown equivalent (good to yielding); should be unbeaten, as she looked unlucky in sole defeat; respected on reappearance and first crack at open company.
