Form & Verdict

Classy customer and consistent with it; placed at the last two Cheltenham Festivals; a notable achievement to defy top weight over a trip short of her best (2m) back at Cheltenham last week and she was runner-up in this 12 months ago; every chance of going one better.

Has 8-28 strike-rate over fences that includes a win off 10lb higher in this race 12 months ago; looked as good as ever when collecting 2m7f Listed prize in December but seems badly to have lost her way this year.

Multiple wins in Listed mares' chases, the latest at Newbury (2m7f, soft) in December; she's well treated on that form now back in a handicap but has been a long way below her best the last twice; needs to bounce back.

C&D winner who has been placed in the last two runnings of this, on good to soft and soft; however, she has ground to make up on Allegorie De Vassy on the latter running and was seemingly disheartened by a fall in January when pulled up at Exeter since.

Form & Verdict

Placed in a Grade 1 novice hurdle at Aintree (3m, good to soft) last April; these terms are unfavourable judged on her chasing exploits to date and she didn't have to improve to win at Warwick (2m4f, soft) last time.

Made mincemeat of modest marks in early days over fences and had a purple spell with seven wins from the autumn of 2020 to December 2021, her final win coming at Hereford (3m1f, good; has won on heavy); just two handicap runs in defeat since, both of which make this look quite an ask.

Dual chase winner, latterly in a Kilbeggan handicap last summer (2m4f, good); that was her last effort of any real note though, and she may struggle to contain a couple of these.

Form & Verdict

Smart hurdler who is every bit as good over fences, getting off the mark in a 2m6f Listed race at Thurles (good) before predictably struggling against male opposition in a Grade 1 at Fairyhouse (2m4f); sound jumper with very strong claims in this company.
