Yeats mare, decent hurdler, was sent off favourite on chase bow at Sligo (2m1½f, good) last month, made rather too many errors however and finished 6L fourth of nine. Competitive if sharpening the jumping.
Just a Tramore maiden hurdle win to show from eight starts over timber, though did finish close second in Listed Mares novice contest at Punchestown in April. Back from summer break, one to note going chasing.
Mare was just average over hurdles, falling on occasion, and didn't show a great deal in three summer chase starts for previous trainer, often jumping slowly. Unseated rider at Tramore in August. Starts for new trainer here.
Low-rated hurdler, was soon in trouble on chasing bow at Sligo last month over 2m1½f on good-ground. Unlikely to find the improvement needed here, on balance.
Second of five in a Gowran Park Listed contest recently over hurdles, following four-in-a-row in a number of British raids since joining this handler. Set for chase bow here.
She hasn't looked a total natural in three chase starts, a sentiment rubber-stamped by a fall at Gowran Park latest. Needs to iron out her fencing.
Multiple point-to-point winner, pulled up sole start under rules in a maiden Hunters Chase at Cork in April. Off since point-to-point run in May. Betting should reveal more.
