Form & Verdict

Got to a decent level as a hurdler; jumping was a problem initially over fences before winning on third start over C&D (ordinary form); hooded but was still free when third of 5 at Thurles last month; up against it but still young and may improve.

Made all to beat a below par Allegorie De Vassy in a Fairyhouse Listed last year; broadly consistent since then, second to Ardera Ru at Fairyhouse and in a Listed at Perth last week; should get into the money.

Fifth in the Mares' Chase at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft; Riviere D'Etel 5l back in sixth) and subsequently runner-up at Fairyhouse (2m5f, heavy); this trip should suit and she's an obvious contender.

Paid the price for a pace battle in the Mares' Chase at Cheltenham and doesn't look well treated on this season's form but a repeat of her career best over C&D last season would put in her in the mix.

Form & Verdict

Grade 3 winner over hurdles here last term; impressed in Grade 2 victories at Limerick and Thurles, albeit jumping was a bit ropey on the latter occasion; jumped well in Mares' Chase at Cheltenham and just outpointed by a smart mare after the last; 8lb penalty but will be very hard to beat.

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.

Allegorie De Vassy

T: W P Mullins

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.

Form & Verdict

Bumper and maiden hurdle winner but much better chaser; off the mark on third chase start at Down Royal (2m) and then won competitive novice handicap over 2m4f at Naas; chased home useful gelding Journey With Me, and was clear of remainder, in Grade 3 at Naas last time; every chance on the book with Allegorie De Vassy but probably needs that one to significantly under-perform.

Acts well on heavy; won three of her four starts this term, including last month's 2m4f Grade 2 mares' chase at Cheltenham, and the exception was her second of 20 to Coko Beach in the 3m Troytown at Navan (not her best jumping, crowded); 7yos can no longer be ruled out straightaway, following Noble Yeats's triumph in 2022, but a stronger indication of stamina from her would be preferable.
