Form & Verdict

Three wins in point-to-points in her younger days; ordinary form in beginners' chases; slotted into handicap company effectively when second to the progressive Money Heist over 2m at Naas a month ago; build on that when C&D winner of a conditions race last time; could prove hard to beat

Has really got her act together over fences in recent starts, going close at Naas before a beginners' success at Punchestown and hit the crossbar having been given too much to do back at that venue latest; clearly thriving and cheekpieces may eke out more.

Close relation Stage Star keeps taking higher rank at this track; this mare made her debut only last November, winning a maiden hurdle (2m4f, heavy); sent chasing this season, unseating three out on second attempt but showing improved form when third of nine against classy rivals at Down Royal (2m3f, soft) latest; brings considerable potential to this handicap chase debut, as well as a fair chance on form.

Form & Verdict

Went up 9lb for winning by 12l at Clonmel in October; fifth placings after that, Limerick run much better than her previous Fairyhouse display; handed another a 4lb rise for finishing second here last time; that could make things difficult.
