Form & Verdict

Narrow winner of each of her last two starts; however, shoved up 7lb for the latest win and she's 4lb wrong here so effectively has an 11lb rise to cope with; that might be a stretch, particularly with her best form coming on softer ground.

Not beaten far at Down Royal in November but well below form twice since; return to hurdles may help and could be well treated from his lower hurdle mark having improved since he was last seen in this sphere.

J: Robert Dunne

T: Ross O’Sullivan

Generally reliable but he was ending a losing run when winning at Killarney (2m1f, yielding to soft) in October; has nothing to fear from the conditions but balance of form suggests he'll be up against it from 2lb out of the weights.

Heavy ground course winner over the extended 2m here in November and bounced back from a lesser run when winning at Limerick since; 2m on this sort of ground might be sharp enough for her though.

4-19 over hurdles; fair fourth at Cork on latest, previously a moderate seventh at Limerick in December when bidding to repeat last season's success in a 2m4f mares' handicap hurdle; best run in 2023 when fourth behind the progressive Buddy One over 2m6f at Galway in October; lacks chasing experience.

Form & Verdict

Won back-to-back handicap hurdles at Perth in the summer; however, pulled up a long way out back over timber latest and probably in need of a career best; off 167 days.

Form & Verdict

Maiden hurdle winner last season and some big runs in defeat subsequently, including a 7l defeat in the mares' novice hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival; however, well below that sort of level in three runs this term and can struggle with her jumping; first-time cheekpieces need to spark a revival.

Created a good impression in winning a Thurles mares' maiden hurdle last season but career has not progressed as might have been expected; has done most of her racing in good company; not without a chance if the addition of a tongue-tie does the trick in her first handicap.

Created a good impression in a Thurles mares maiden hurdle last season but never really kicked on from there; jumping left a bit to be desired and eventually tailed off in a Grade 3 at Leopardstown two weeks ago; likely to do better here but others have an edge.

Career best came on soft ground over 2m6f but has run with credit over this trip including when beaten roughly 6l in a competitive contest at Navan last month; while 2lb lower here, he might want a bit more cut in the ground, particularly over this distance.
