Chased home handicap snip Truffles at Galway before showing herself to be pretty well treated too when winning by some 8L over 1m½f at the same venue. 12lb higher here but apprentice eases the burden and leading player again.
Winner of her first three starts of this campaign before 3L eighth last time out off 5lb higher mark. Upped to 7f for first time here which looks likely to suit so could very easily be back in the thick of things.
1m maiden winner at Listowel was second on handicap debut at Naas last time over 6f behind re-opposing Soffia. 4lb better off with that rival here and extra 1f sure to suit so should go well with the champion jockey up.
Killarney maiden winner on debut where she turned over an odds-on Joseph O'Brien three year old. Third in that race gone well since so form could be useful and hugely unexposed here going straight into a handicap.
Not won since debut over a year ago but become pretty consistent this term. Fourth placed finishes last twice at Leopardstown in small fields fair runs but handicapper still seems to have a tight enough grip.
Curragh maiden winner last August has gone close in two handicaps at the same venue the last twice beaten a short-head and a neck respectively. Clearly capable off this sort of mark and looks a leading contender once more.
A winner at Roscommon and Bellewstown this season she ran another good race latest when third of 13 to the potentially well handicapped Espere at Galway. Meets similar rivals here but clearly improving with racing.
Easy winner of a Listowel handicap but was given a 9lb penalty for it and struggled twice since. Handicapper quick to ease his grip but others appeal as better treated here.
Twice at the mercy of handicap good-thing Truffles at Galway last month but won this race 12 months ago at 8/1. 10lb lower this year so potentially very well in but not showed a great deal in 2018.
Not won since landing a double in Autumn 2016. Well beaten behind Truffles at Galway last month after a short break. May strip fitter now but this perennial slow-starter isn't easy to fancy.
Behind a couple of these rivals lately with fourth of seven to My Silver Nails last time out and last of 10 to Soffia the time before. Hard to envisage her turning the tables on either rival and 1lb out of the handicap here.
