Has done well over fences this year and is now rated 130, whereas she gets in here off 106 as a hurdler; mixed messages as to what she achieved in a mares' hurdle at Wexford last time but could go well.

Much-improved mare over fences this season, winning three times; out of her depth last time in a Grade 2 event at Gowran in September and in rear in a valuable Cork handicap last time; now rated 130 over fences, but needs to surpass her 106 hurdles mark considerably.

J: Phillip Enright

T: John F Gleeson

Tailed off over hurdles last time but he's better over fences, as seen when runner-up at Tipperary last month; no chase wins since 2021 but workable mark on last season's peak form and respected; best form on yielding or quicker.

Form & Verdict

Good form at a modest level over hurdles lately, winning two of his last three races; not hugely disadvantaged by being 2lb out of the handicap and he has the merit of being a dual course winner.
