The Willie Mullins-trained newcomer RELEGATE is the obvious starting point and she will not need to be anything special to make a winning debut. That said, Melior is a half-sister to Altior and she showed enough on her debut to suggest with the run under her belt, she could cause a few problems here. Iamastartoo should also be bang there.

Wexford runner-up on debut has run to a similar standard in two starts in the interim, finishing a good third here in October before settling for fourth best at Naas on her recent start; needs delivering late with one strong effort and overall profile entitles her to take high rank here.

Won a 4yo mares' maiden point at Boulta by 2l on debut, a race working out well with both the second and third winning next time out; looks a nice sort to wage war with and no surprise if she gives them plenty to think about.

Not a bad effort on debut but failed to impress on second start (stable debut) when down the field at Fairyhouse behind Biddy The Boss; has ability and a bit early to overlook, but needs to have stepped up another notch.

Half-sister to Altior stayed on nicely under pressure to be a creditable fifth in open company on debut at Thurles; likely to have learned plenty and with the match practice under her belt now, she could be one to have on your side.

Promise on Ballinrobe debut on good ground but folded tamely when down the field at Galway on second start; only a 6-1 shot for the latter and may well have needed it after a break, but testing conditions raise some concerns; tongue-tie now added.

Slow to grace the track (just before she turned seven) but a good third at Wexford (third start) on her first run after a break; again pretty solid when fifth in a Clonmel maiden hurdle in the interim and with little miles on the clock, potential to step up again and now tried in a hood.

Failed to build on a promising third for Willie Mullins on debut at Downpatrick in two subsequent starts; has since transferred to Margaret Mullins (stable going well) and remains a threat here with the second highest RPR posted amongst those with experience.
