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.
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.
Has failed to finish in two career point-to-point starts. Well out of her depth here in this contest.
