Probably too high in the ratings since a wide-margin Tramore win last summer; just denied in a Fairyhouse handicap hurdle (much lower mark) in October before well held in a competitive Cheltenham handicap chase; always at the back in a recent handicap hurdle at Ballinrobe.

Low-key return after a four-month absence at Thurles last week; in good form earlier in the season and all her best form has come on this sort of ground; while she's on a tough mark, this isn't a strong contest and she should be involved if she bounces back from last week's run.
