Form & Verdict

Jumped left when winning here and at Kilbeggan on nice ground in midsummer; not recover from bad mistake at Galway and turned over at 3-10 when caught on the line by Popova at Listowel; weighted to reverse form with that rival but heavy ground is a worry along with going back right-handed.

Managed to overcome a tendency to jump left to win at Limerick and Kilbeggan; jumped terribly at Galway but was still there with a chance when losing all chance two out; should be much better suited going left-handed here and a major contender.

Form & Verdict

Hasn't run over hurdles since finishing seventh in Fred Winter over two years ago; smart novice over fences, Grade 2/3 winner and twice runner-up at Grade 1 level; ran well on reappearance last season and wasn't out of things when falling in Mares' Chase at Cheltenham; first time out record is encouraging, not sure to stay but good opportunity all the same.

Form & Verdict

Handicapper felt latest Listed third at Gowran (2m, soft/heavy) flattered her and he's probably right as she was ridden to pick up pieces; bumper and maiden winner is likeable, though, albeit this trip on testing ground may be too far.
