Dundalk winner last year; belatedly gained a first turf win (on 17th attempt) when scoring in emphatic style at Fairyhouse under a positive ride from Killian Leonard; 9lb rise does not seem unreasonable.

Reverts to the Flat after a third placing in a handicap hurdle at Listowel; only Flat win was as a juvenile, but she ran well when getting into the money in two visits to this track last season.

1-15 on the Flat but stayed well; beaten between 8l and 21l in three Irish maidens won by smart novices (hooded the last twice) and it could well be that today's quicker ground will benefit, as was the case on the Flat; an interesting handicap debutante; races prominently.

Turf/AW winner for the Charltons; regressive at Dundalk; now down 18lb from her career-high mark but plenty to prove at this stage.

Much better record on AW (5-35) than on turf (1-23), though this going should suit him; his seventh of 22 at Navan a fortnight ago was not a bad effort.

Form & Verdict

Disqualified for two runs with a banned substance in November 2022; emerged from 464-day absence when no show at Dundalk in March for new yard; another change of stable did the trick when she won a 1m5f handicap at Navan five weeks ago; up 7lb and has plenty of weight now.
