County Waterford-based John Queally has fond memories of this place having won the Aintree Hurdle three times with Al Eile and nothing has stronger form credentials than his GETAWAY KATIE MAI. Having been stone-cold last at halfway in a Grade 2 at Leopardstown's big February meeting she did remarkably well to finish within touching distance of Relegate, who went on to beat the boys at Cheltenham. Posh Trish commands attention having hammered the selection when they met in points and even defeat at Sandown surpassed her early season form, while Dissavril created a big impression on her British debut in what was a strong bumper by Market Rasen standards.[Alistair Jones]

Not the biggest of mares but has an engine and after scoring comfortably at Ballinrobe she ran second in just about the strongest bumper for mares run in Ireland this season at Leopardstown (Grade 2 on soft), making up considerable ground (was last at halfway) to divide Cheltenham heroine Relegate and Colreevy who finished seventh at the Festival; that form further boosted with the fourth Tintangle winning easily since; cast-iron credentials.

Placed in two 1m4f AQPS Flat races in France; made light of a 294-day absence on debut for Emma Lavelle, charging home from off the pace at Market Rasen to win going away in Listed mares' event; that form needs respecting, with the runner-up previously successful at Newbury and since a close fourth in Listed race at Sandown (just behind Posh Trish); interesting.

Her defeat of Getaway Katie Mai in an Irish point last March looks good now and she won her first two bumpers (one here); took her form to an even higher level when third at Sandown (Listed) last time, the form of which interlinks encouragingly with a few of today's rivals; only real blip came against the boys at Ascot and she's definitely shortlist material.

From the last crop of top jumps sire King's Theatre; point/bumper winner on last two starts in Ireland and fetched £100,000 afterwards; made fine start for new yard in winning a Listed bumper at Huntingdon (2m, good to soft) on Boxing Day and the third has turned out decent over hurdles; needs considering for trainer who won this in 2012.

Sold unraced by Godolphin for 5,000gns; rare bumper runner for the yard when making a winning debut on soft ground at Wetherby (1m4f); stylish enough then, but the form doesn't look anywhere near good enough to suggest she's up to this, with the second beaten further by Zakharova the next time.

Didn't show anything more than minor promise when fourth in modest Southwell bumper for Dan Skelton last June but was then clear in the lead when falling in a maiden point, after which for Patrick Holmes she floored the odds-on favourite (previous winner) in a four-runner bumper on heavy ground at Sedgefield; things looking up all of a sudden, but opposable in this company for another new trainer.
