Fifth in the Mares' Chase at Cheltenham (2m4f, soft; Riviere D'Etel 5l back in sixth) and subsequently runner-up at Fairyhouse (2m5f, heavy); this trip should suit and she's an obvious contender.

Paid the price for a pace battle in the Mares' Chase at Cheltenham and doesn't look well treated on this season's form but a repeat of her career best over C&D last season would put in her in the mix.

Chase wins on heavy and yielding; versatile trip-wise and it's hard to fault her second in this race last March (soft) when she looked to have the race won, only to get outstayed by the rallying winner (who is unbeaten over fences); failed to do herself justice on second outing this winter but on song either side of that and looks sure to be in the thick of it.

Won Grade 2 novice chases at Limerick and Thurles last season before a fine second in the Grade 2 Mares' Chase at Cheltenham; ended the season with two defeats, one inflicted by stablemate Instit; avenged that on seasonal debut at Clonmel before being trounced by Riviere D'Etel; on these terms, it should be close now between the pair if she is restored to form.

Outclassed in a Grade 2 last time (fell midrace) but she's only 1-16 over fences and her sole win came off a 4lb lower mark; goes on this ground but others appeal more on her return from a lengthy break.
