Form & Verdict

Cork bumper winner on testing ground last year got off the mark over hurdles at Thurles in January over 2m; was out of her depth but still a poor run at Cheltenham in March; has won off a break, so has a solid chance; tongue-tie added; seems yard's first-string.

Four-time chase winner is rated much higher in that sphere, though was poor on latest run in that discipline; below form on last hurdle start at Listowel; others preferred.

Won a C&D maiden hurdle at this meeting last year at 50/1 on testing ground; well beaten on return in a Punchestown handicap last time and has to improve plenty from that.

Off the track for a year after winning a Wexford maiden hurdle in 2022; went closest in a 2m6f handicap hurdle at Navan in November before scoping dirty at Limerick a month later; progressive if her latest run can be ignored and looks a player from 1lb out of the handicap.

Off for a year after winning her maiden hurdle; fine effort when narrowly beaten in a 2m6f handicap hurdle at Navan last month; probably best at around that trip but respected back at this trip in mares company.

Form & Verdict

Won a Tramore maiden hurdle in soft before a fine run against an improved rival in a Listowel handicap; raced too keenly in first-time blinkers when pulled-up in a Punchestown handicap last time; no headgear today, so a better run is likely.

Placed a few times in bumpers before showing improved form to win a Tramore maiden hurdle (ran keen) in heavy ground last time raised to this trip; should have more to offer and go well; probably stable's favoured runner.

Won a claiming chase on second run in France back in January; the ground was heavy so should have no problem with these conditions; appears to be her powerful yard's second-string, though.

Verdict

Though well below her best in the Mares’ Novice Hurdle at Cheltenham when last seen, BELLE THE LIONESS goes well fresh and can get back to winning ways on return, stepping up in trip. The improving Faux Fur can give her most to do. [Tyrone Molloy]
