Fair effort on bumper debut but well held in a maiden hurdle prior to that and probably best watched at present.
Struggled in four outings so far including twice in bumpers since joining this yard. Others hold stronger claims on her return to hurdling.
13 race maiden under all codes but ran well when third in a novice hurdle at Limerick (good) last month. Of interest if repeating that effort.
Beaten 9L into fourth when contesting a 2m4f handicap hurdle at Wexford (good) last time out. Interesting to see how she fares on this occasion.
Fair sixth over an extended 2m3f at Kilbeggan (good) in April last year. Absent since and worth a check in the market on debut for this yard.
Well beaten in three starts to date including when beaten 35L at Punchestown (good) in June. Returning from a short break.
Point-to-point winner on good ground in June. Fair form in two starts over hurdles so far but likely more needed if she's to take this contest.
14 race maiden but beaten just ¾L when finishing third of four over 2m4f on good ground here last month. Cheekpieces worn for the first time that day are retained.
Unraced daughter of Arcadio sold for €1,500 as a foal in November 2014. Half-sister to a number of winners and market support would be interesting on debut.
Good effort despite finishing 11th at Roscommon (2m, good) on debut but failed to back that up at Ballinrobe (good) subsequently. Others hold stronger claims.
Placed twice on the Flat but held in that sphere the last twice. Interesting to see how she fares now switched to hurdles.
Finished runner-up in bumpers twice last month. Forecast underfoot conditions are in her favour and she looks likely to play a leading role on hurdling debut.
