Not disgraced on debut in a Tipperary maiden hurdle in May before switching to bumper company and winning at the second time of asking at Roscommon in July. Fell next time out at Galway. Chance if bouncing back from that experience.
Makes debut over hurdles; won over 2m2f in a bumper at Downpatrick on good going before disappointing when odds-on last time at Perth on soft; deserves another chance and market likely to provide a good guide.
Won once and placed twice on the Flat over the summer and comes here in good order for her hurdle debut; No reason why she should not take to hurdling and looks to have an excellent chance.
Flat form is very patchy and her two outings over hurdles hardly inspire confidence; did finsih second on hurdles debut but she never got into the race and finishing 11th of 13th last time out at Downpatrick tells a truer story.
Showed little signs of ability in three bumper outings before showing even less on her hurdles debut at Ballinrobe last week. Very difficult to make a case for this mare.
Ran as well as could be expected in a poor race over course and distance last time out and while this is not much better, she may be once again be racing for place prize money.
Ran better than expected on hurdle debut on this course (2m4f) earlier this month finishing a fair third, holding every chance turning for home. If building on that then she can run a big race.
Never a factor on debut at Bellewstown last month and on second start at Galway earlier this month; likely to be a similar story here.
Failed to build on promising bumper debut at Naas in February when tailed off when next seen out in March at Limerick; hard to assess on hurdling debut.
