Impressive distance winner earlier this month when landing a Ballinrobe maiden hurdle by 18L. Up in to Listed company and needs to improve again.
Second of 16 in the Listed Punchestown novice hurdle at the festival last month 1L behind Dark Shadow. More needed here but capable of hitting the frame.
Three-time winner over hurdles finished fourth of 25 at the Punchestown festival last month. Big ask and others readily preferred.
Failed to build on a win at Tramore when no impression and looking one paced two out in a Wexford handicap hurdle earlier this month. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.
Definite promise in this contest 12-months ago and can be expected to improve for a run at Punchestown last month.
Solid and consistent without winning in a number of Listed and Graded contests including a game fifth of 24 in the County Hurdle at the Cheltenham festival in March. Best form gives her a big shout here.
Took her form forward a step when taking a Clonmel maiden hurdle on first start for new yard, the front two nicely clear before disappointing when stepped up to this level last month at Punchestown. May struggle in this company.
Beaten when falling at the Cheltenham festival and when unseating at the Punchestown jamboree last month in two Grade 1 contests. Big drop in class and market should be informative.
