There was plenty to like about how Blixt got the job done here last time and she now has the assistance of Ruby Walsh for the first time in her career. However, SHARLANDA (nap) appears to be in a very good place at present and this step up in trip should be right up her street. Pat's Pearl and Thanks For Tea can fight it out for the each-way money.

Plenty to like about how she knuckled down to win on stable debut at Gowran over hurdles and not disgraced when third to Cable at Limerick over fences; was able to win over that C&D next time in emphatic style, seeing off Flaviana by 16l, with connections reporting her in foal to Ol' Man River; 11lb lower over hurdles than fences and must have a major chance.

Three parts sister to Hurricane Fly had proved a little frustrating to follow, beaten in all four bumper starts at 3-1 or shorter, but created a nice impression when winning on hurdles debut here last month (2m3f, good); shaped as if stamina would be fine for this; high on the shortlist.

Started on 88 for this team and now finds herself at 104 after two successes in the past year; doing plenty of racing across the Irish Sea but performed with credit at Cork latest when dropping back to 2m4f from an extended 3m; current mark makes life tough but improvement possible.

Not managed to score over hurdles since July 2015 but performing with credit in this sphere, finishing second to Cap D'Aubois at Tipperary over 3m two starts ago; ultimately appears to be more competitive over fences though, having an 8lb higher rating, and producing a fine effort to finish 7.5l adrift of Riviera Sun in the Galway Blazers last week; respected.

Ended a run of four seconds (two of which came here) when gaining a deserved success at Bangor in first-time cheekpieces last week, scoring decisively; continues to rise in the weights and Doyle's 5lb should help; enjoys this place but may prove to be in deeper waters than she's used to.

0-13 but looked to have ability last year, hitting the frame in four bumpers (including two here) and pair of maiden hurdles; lost her way a little after a decent second to Grade 3-winning hurdler at Clonmel in November, latest effort at Limerick was dismal; must return to old form.

Strike rate of 1-14 over hurdles not appealing and has been running better on the AW of late than any other sphere; failed to complete on three of her last five efforts over obstacles and only beat one and two rivals home in the other pair of starts; best watched until showing some form.

Latest start, her handicap debut at Ballinrobe, was the most encouraging of her career; has never finished closer than 23l adrift of the winner in seven starts however, and has been beaten a total of 307l; 11lb out of the handicap here and impossible to fancy.
