Winner of a mares' chase on a trip across the Irish sea taking a Carlisle contest over 2m4f in December. Likely to be a warm order here.

Looks held on recent form following a number of gloomy displays and hard to see where the necessary improvement may come from.

Held in Grade 1 company before winning a Grade 2 mares' novice chase at Thurles last month. Takes another drop in class here and can give the favourite the most to think about.

5/2
Showed plenty of promise in the spring including a win in a Listed mares hurdle at Killarney. Ran well on return in November before winning over C&D last month in a 2m beginners chase. Will need to improve but capable of running a big race.

Game but finished 19L behind Dinaria Des Obeaux when finishing third of seven in a Thurles Grade 2 novice chase. Looks opposable.

Betting

Forecast

Benie Des Dieux (1/1), Dinaria Des Obeaux (9/4), Asthuria (5/2), Youcantcallherthat (33/1), Presenting Mahler (66/1), Shangary Molly (100/1)

Verdict

The possible Willie Mullins second string Asthuria likes to get on with things from the front and can take the field along here in the early stages of the contest. The early speed is expected to set the race up for last time out Grade 2 winner Dinaria Des Obeaux and BENIE DES DIEUX to battle it out in the closing stages with preference marginally for the latter.
  1. Benie Des Dieux
  2. Dinaria Des Obeaux
