Real mixed bag in point-to-points, winning once and placing multiple times from 18 attempts. Also well capable of throwing in the towel. Needs to be on a going day.
Point-to-point form has appeared to drop off in a couple of contests since finishing second of seven at Clonmel in January beaten 2¾L in a maiden hunter chase over 2m4½f. Chance on that run.
Showed a degree of ability over hurdles last year and she comes here on the back of a hat-trick of point-to-point wins over the last month. Big player on first outing in this sphere.
Winner of a maiden point-to-point at Ballyarthur on St Patrick's Day, well beaten in better company since however and must take a step forward going under rules for the first time.
Uncompetitive in trio of bumpers in 2016/18 and remains without a win after 15 attempts in point-to-points. Poor in that sphere of late and opposed for now.
Well held in pair of maiden hurdles in the autumn at Listowel and Clonmel, she's since landed back-to-back wins in the point-to-point sphere during February and should arrive here in decent heart.
Nothing of note in rules record (bumper/hurdles) so far, was runner-up in a point-to-point on debut for this yard before finishing fourth of 10 at Downpatrick last month. Unlikely to play a part in the finish.
13-race maiden over hurdles and pulled up on sole start over regulation fences at Wexford in October; she comes here after two limited efforts in point-to-points and is opposed.
Hints of ability in bumper/hurdles career so far and landed mares' maiden point-to-point last month on penultimate outing. Entitled to have designs on a share of prize money here.
