611-7OR:
13/2

French bred mare who has shown promise on both starts so far and now races for the first time with her tongue tied. Kept on wel to be second on latest start at LImerick in December and has fair claims.

Won mares maiden point-to-point on debut in January and fell in another race between the flags when shaping well last time. Rules debut now, wears a first time tongue-tie, and market should prove a decent guide to her chance.

711-7OR:
40/1

Four runs in bumpers, three times running poorly but was third of 14 at Naas in December. On balance much more is needed as she makes her hurdles bow.

Seven-year-old Mahler mare makes a belated racecourse debut. Dam of little account so it would be a surprise if she figures first time out.

711-7OR:
10/1

One of the stable's lesser lights but placed in four of six starts so far. Fair third penultimate start at Thurles but disappointed in testing ground at Tramore in December when last seen. Shouldn't be far away but needs to raise her game to win.

611-7OR:
80/1

Modest form in two point-to-point prior to Rules debut last time at Punchestown where showed a little ability in finishing distant sixth of 12. May come on for that but looks one for handicaps down the line.

711-7OR:
14/1

Showed little in first two Rules appearances but has done better in fair contests last two starts without reaching a place. This looks easier so may not be at all far away.

Flemensfirst mare out of a useful hurdles/chase winner. Has one of the better pedigrees in this race but yard just 1-36 here over the last five years. Worth a market check though.

Not disgraced ond ebut in Punchestwon bumper on New Year's Eve, then 6th of 19 in Gowran bumper last month. Hurdles debut now and wouldn't need to be a worldbeater to make her presence felt.

Placed just once from eight starts but stayed on into fourth last time over 2m3f at Clonmel so extra trip here could suit. Yard going through a quiet spell though.

Nicely bred Walk In The Park mare cost £200,000 at Aintree Sales last April. Runner-up to decent sort last time over 2m, and similar form may well be enough to score here if she sees out this longer trip.

Wears first-time hood. Just two starts so far and led for much of way before tiring rapidly in Thurles bumper last month, finishing well beaten. This looks a tough assignment.

511-6OR:
9/4

Some promise in bumpers and also in two hurdles starts to date, finishing third at both Navan and Punchestown for former yard. Debut here for new connections and should be thereabouts.

Betting

Forecast

Rhythm Divine (9/4), Little Light (11/4), Late Again (5/1), Denham Hana (13/2), Miss Chevious Girl (10/1), Golden Glory (14/1), Peterstown (14/1), Dualla Time (20/1), Eddies Pride (33/1), Flying Vacation (33/1), Dylan Rock (40/1), Glencullen Hero (50/1), Purple Polly (50/1), Myladyrose (80/1)

Verdict

A modest race to start but a good chance for Joseph O'Brien's LITTLE LIGHT to get off the mark after shwoing enough in her last two starts to suggest this race is within her capabilities. Stable companions Rhythm Divine and Peterstown both have place prospects, while Miss Chevious Girl represents a top yard always to be feared. Denham Hana, Golden Glory and Late Again are potential improvers.
