Form & Verdict

French import made a fine impact on her Irish debut when beating Saylavee in a 2m2f Listed contest here in November; not at her best in a Leopardstown Grade 3 at Christmas but certainly respected on earlier form.

Won four hurdles and two chases in France, including in Grade 3 company over 2m3f; surprise winner for this rider on Irish debut in 2m2f Listed contest at Punchestown; can uphold form with runner-up Saylavee; helps to give the stable a strong hand.

Won a Listed mares event here last season; runner-up to Hispanic Moon here in November; below her best at Leopardstown last time; stable second string but cannot be ruled out at the weights.

Won Listed mares' novice at Punchestown (2m3f, yielding) in December 2022 and second of four in mares' Grade 3 at Punchestown (2m4f, heavy) last time, behind an easy winner who went on to be third at Cheltenham; she's not obviously well treated and has something to prove at this new trip, but she's with a top Irish trainer (one of three for yard) and is not ruled out.

Useful mare at her best; well below the level of a Punchestown Listed win on her final two starts last season; made an encouraging start to the season with Punchestown second behind Hispanic Moon.

Form & Verdict

Dual winner over hurdles for Willie Mullins, winning two Grade 1s last year; somewhat disappointing when third to stablemate Ashroe Diamond in a Grade 2 at Doncaster last month; no easy task to give away upwards of 9lb in this race but probably still the one to beat.
