Cabarete came out best when meeting LADY CLITICO, Glance Of Doon, Dresden Green and Impressive Duke here at the start of the month but Charlie Swan's filly, a winner over 1m4f on the Flat, started favourite that day and may have the greater scope for improvement - she can reverse the form and take this. A hurdling career wouldn't have been envisaged for Tarabiyn given his breeding but he showed little on the Flat in two starts for John Oxx last year and Willie Mullins may need more time to work his magic.
