Tongue-tie applied for this chasing debut but showed very little in three outings over hurdles and is hard to enthuse over in this decent company.
Talented mare who won her last five starts over hurdles in 2016 , including in listed and Grade 3 company. Clearly has had issues since then and not seen for over two years. Returns here over longer trip but has to be very much respected.
Decent hurdler. Made promising chase debut when runner-up in Grade 3 at Cork in December, then occupied same position at Limerick three weeks later when beaten favourite. Must be on her game to score here.
2-11 over hurdles and has also won twice on the Flat. Makes chasing bow here on balance probably has something to find in this company.
Outclassed when pulled up in Grade 2 hurdle at Ascot last time, but had previously shown fair form, although at a lower level than some of today's rivals. Makes chase debut this afternoon.
Won on Flat and over hurdles, and runner-up on last two chase outings, including in Grade 2 at Thurles last time when ultimately well held. Yard in fine form so has to be respected getting weight from her elders.
