The County Kildare handler can see both her representatives running well, although Cailin Annamh would be the better-fancied of the pair.
The five-year-old has won four of her last five starts and now goes for her first Grade Three success while Takeyourcapoff has had a spin on the Flat at Down Royal after being brought down over hurdles at Killarney.
"We don't want to see too much more rain for either of them," she said. "Cailin Annamh showed she can handle a cut in the ground at Gowran and we'd be hoping for the best with her.
"As for Takeyourcapoff, I'd love to get her placed to pick up a little bit of black-type. Of course you don't know what this weather is going to do, but tomorrow could be Cailin Annamh's sign-off run until the spring."
Dot Love puts Shadow Eile back over hurdles after disappointing in her last two runs over fences. The eight-year-old has smart form over the smaller obstacles, as she showed when fourth to Quevega in the OLBG Mares' Hurdle at the Cheltenham Festival.
Colin Bowe's consistent mare Little King Robin and Diyala, third on her hurdles debut for Gordon Elliott, also figure in a field of seven.
