Two from nine over hurdles but has suffered a couple of crushing defeats over the larger obstacles recently which may have left a mark. Behind a couple of these in the ratings.
Ran well at Tramore before a sound effort back over hurdles at Kilbeggan last month over 2m2f on good ground. Interesting jockey booking.
French import, odds-on winner on debut for new connections at Tipperary in May, doing well to get up close home with front pair clear. Further consolidated her profile when landing a novice hurdle over C&D at the festival last month. Leading player.
Consistent mare but has proven expensive to follow for favourite backers being turned over three times last winter when market leader. Best watched on return to action here.
Highest rated in the field and comes here on a hat-trick of wins following a couple of accomplished wins in the summer. Sets the standard in this contest.
€78,000 purchase as a foal being a sister to top class bumper/hurdle winner Darlan. Well held in two maiden hurdle starts to date and opposable here.

Calie Du Mesnil (6/4), Pleasure Dome (13/8), Awayinthewest (5/1), Chambord Du Lys (8/1), Osco Mosco (33/1), Be That As It May (100/1)
