Form & Verdict
Out of a sister to the classy Yorkhill; plenty of debut promise at Thurles in February, staying on under considerate enough handling over 2m to finish third to an odds-on stablemate, shaping as though longer would suit; likely the one to beat now getting a greater stamina test.

Runner-up in Kilbeggan maiden hurdle last summer but well held twice since in bumpers, tailed off on Gowran comeback last month on heavy ground after forcing early pace; likely wants better ground.

Second in a 2m2f maiden hurdle here last year over a furlong shorter; also placed in a bumper at this venue, but needs to show major improvement from a recent 2m3f maiden hurdle run here.
