Clearly thriving now as she showed when winning third race since August here last week over 2m4f on good to firm ground. 4lb penalty offset by switch to apprentice jockey so big chance as long as rain stays away.

Good second over fences at Downpatrick last time out and also ran well in most recent hurdle start when third over 3m at Listowel. Same mark here so has each-way possibilities especially if forecast showers turn heavy.

Won twice over 2m5½f at Tramore and Downpatrick before back-to-back thirds since over 2m4f. This the longest trip she's faced but should stay and has to be considered a leading contender with recent form so solid.

Slight improvement last twice since going up in trip to 2m4f in maiden hurdles. Now switches to handicap for first time and looked likely to appreciate genuine stamina test so could be open to more progress now and therefore is respected here.

Off the mark at the 29th time of asking at Downpatrick two starts back over this trip before finishing midfield at same venue off today's mark. Appreciates cut in the ground so any rain will help and genuine chance if ground turns soft.

Switch to this yard unlocked her potential with chase wins at Cartmel and in most recent start at Ayr. Lower hurdles mark so could well now carry that improvement over and has to be considered here.

Winner at Wexford (first success) in September but things not gone to plan since as she slipped up next and fell when under pressure last time out. Hopefully feel no ill effects from that but now others are preferred.

Left ordinary form behind when winning at Clonmel over 2m3½f. Midfield next at the same venue but didn't last out 3m latest at Wexford as she was pulled-up a long way out and far from guaranteed she stays here either.

Couldn't build on career best second at Listowel latest after a break with a laboured 25th of 27 finish at Navan. Given more time since but doubts over this trip and particularly after such an effort most recently.

810-9OR: 85

Best of her four starts after an 1104 day absence latest when fourth of 19 at Tipperary over 3m. This trip may suit better so possibilities here as an each-way prospect based on latest effort.

Didn't jump fluently over fences last time but hurdles form in the summer was useful as she won over 2m5½f and ran well next at 3m before a slightly lesser effort. Win came on heavy ground so rain would be a bonus.

Veteran won here in 2016 and also over 3m earlier in career but recent return from a 570 day absence saw him tailed off at Wexford and has to be considered a very risky proposition now.

Third behind Thisonesforollie followed by fourth to Caerleon Kate and was again third latest when 3m may have stretched her to the limits. Better off with both aforementioned duo here but again a place looks likely best outcome.

Never competitive in four maiden hurdles and similar story latest when switched to handicapping. Up in trip again and still relatively young and inexperienced so hoping to see some improvement.

Placed in last two of her three point-to-points but off the track 11 months and doubt that even best form would see her competitive here.

Unplaced in all 14 career starts and behind rivals here when ninth of 12 latest at Clonmel. Of little ability or appeal.

Betting

Forecast

Rain In Spain (9/4), Thisonesforollie (4/1), Toosey (5/1), Court Adjourned (8/1), Gone Galavanting (12/1), Open To The World (12/1), Madaboy Cross (14/1), Caerleon Kate (14/1), Whoyakodding (14/1), Bazarov (16/1), Glamorous Nellie (20/1), Lagenod (22/1), Shantelle (25/1), Balynaclash Warior (25/1), Kilcolman Dj (33/1), Grey Habit (33/1), Presenting Court (33/1), Kilkarney Mai (50/1)

Verdict

RAIN IN SPAIN is an improving mare and a 4lb penalty should be something she can overcome here providing she stays this slightly longer trip which she appear more than likely to do. Thisonesforollie for the all-conquering Elliott-Russell combination is a big danger after a prolonged run of good form with a step up in trip here in her favour. Toosey has improved since switching to this yard over fences so must be respected with possibilities to do the same now over the smaller obstacles.
