Bumper winner at this track in May and shaped well on seasonal reappearance before making winning debut over hurdles at Clonmel (2m4f) in October. This trip should be her optimum and is one of the leading contenders.
An above-average bumper horse, finishing second in an Aintree Grade 2 and confirmed promise with comfortable victory on hurdles debut at Cork (2m4f) last month. Remains an exciting prospect and is on the shortlist.
Made a promising hurdles debut when finding one too good in February but returned over obstacles with a clear-cut 7L success at Galway (2m, soft) at the end of October. Improving sort who could be anything. Considered.
Frustrating sort who keeps finding one to good and continued her run of placed efforts when 2L second at Thurles (2m7f) last month. Vulnerable to more classier prospects in the field.
Modest handicap hurdler who has been mixing it chasing recently to no effect, including heavy defeat here (2m6f) last time out. Has it all to do on paper and makes limited appeal.
