Form & Verdict
Listed winner at Thurles in February and made a fine return to action when readily accounting for today's rival Time To Rocco in a Listowel mares novice in September; 15lb worse off with that rival today but sets a very good standard here and is the one to beat.

Won big pot over hurdles at last year's Galway festival and made winning start over fences at same track; not competitive in good company next few chase starts but creditable third in Wexford handicap in July and not done with when departing two out at Killarney; trip fine but would prefer better grouund.
