Has appeared vulnerable in Graded company when last seen in November, but this will be more to her liking. Can be expected to go well for a yard with a 36% win and place strike rate at this meeting in the last four years.
Distance winner, successful in tow of her last three starts. Yard boast an impressive 78% win and place strike rate at this meeting in the last four years from just nine runners.
Course winner that has also won over this trip. Unbeaten in three career start including landing a Punchestown maiden last month. Can be expected to run another big race given her current path of progression.
Will have disappointed connections since landing a Limerick handicap hurdle in October with a number of heavy defeats since including a couple of reversals when last seen in February. Hard to fancy and plenty to prove.
Not much to shout about in four hurdle starts to date, including a 53L defeat at Downpatrick last month and unlikely to be troubling the judge in this contest.
Daughter of Dylan Thomas out of a Saffron Walden mare. No impression when well beaten on racecourse debut in a Punchestown maiden hurdle earlier this month. Difficult to place any faith in.
Below par efforts in France and on initial starts here on the Flat were firmly put behind her with an encouraging run on debut in a Listowel maiden hurdle earlier this month over a similar trip. Worth a check in the market.
Nothing of note or encouragement for connections in three lackluster maiden hurdle efforts since January. Form doesn't warrant support here.
Basement 47-rated handicapper on the Flat and will qualify as a big outsider making hurdling debut in this company. Looks a tall order.
