Likeable mare who stayed on well to lead near finish at Limerick on Saturday and extra three furlongs should not be an issue. Big chance under 5lb penalty if recovered from her recent exertions.
Campaigned over two miles for most starts and won at that trip in Wexford beginners chase in April. Seemed to have lost some confidence with poor jumping in last two chases and ran last time over hurdles. First-time cheekpieces tried.
Won two hunter chases back in 2017 but was absent for a long time prior to reappearing between the flags in May and when second under Rules at Wexford last time. Not helped by 1lb rise but should be there or thereabouts.
Won C&D in May off 7lb lower mark and went close at Tramore following start. Found little under pressure last time at Wexford when made favourite so needs to raise his game to score on that evidence.
Came away in good style to beat Mega Mindy by over 6 lengths at Wexford last month, and the winner (who reopposes here) has franked the form by winning since. 4lb worse of with the runner-up so it might be closer this time.
Eased 4lb since last chase start having failed to place in five attempts to date over the larger obstacles. On a three-year losing streak and hard to see him breaking the sequence on this occasion.
Landed 2m6f Tramore hunter chase penultimate start and may have found 3m1f beyond him when comfortably held at Wexford last time. Drop in trip makes sense but needs to find more to play a leading role.
Trainer and jockey among winners at Sligo yesterday but hard to see this gelding following suit having failed to score in 13 previous attempts over fences. Gets plenty of weight but it's not easy to look elsewhere.
