Reappeared this time last year to win twice within eight days including this event; not at that level all three subsequent outings (tailed off over 2m6f final occasion) but clearly runs well fresh and conditions to suit so respected.

Three-time winner on good ground, her first two victories achieved early last season in quick succession after a break; failed to sustain progress but confirmed ability to go well fresh when winning at Down Royal last month; possibly best over shorter trips.

Won Clonmel bumper last term and off the mark at fourth attempt over timber last month in 2m Tipperary mares' maiden despite less than fluent round of jumping; much stiffer task here and will have to be a lot slicker in her jumping to be competitive.

Placed in similar race to this over C&D (good to soft) in April and might have bettered that performance when close second at Downpatrick (2m2f, good to yielding) last month; her form isn't anything to get too excited about but she ought to play a significant role under Brian Hughes.

Lightly-raced mare completed hat-trick of wins in 2020 including 2m4f hurdles at Tipperary and Listowel and after an interrupted couple of years put up fine effort to defy top-weight in 2m6f Killarney handicap last August, none too fluent but rallying well to just hold on (good-to-yielding); well treated by the race conditions here and despite marked drop in trip looks the one to beat.
