Days: 191

Ashroe Diamond hasn't run since the Galway festival in July.

Without the benefit of a recent run, it's hard to know whether she'll be fully tuned up for this.

She is in top hands however and could be better than most of these rivals, but she's hard to recommend against race fit horses today.

Weight: 11-8
OR: N/A
Days: 50

This mare has top class form to her name, most recently finishing second to American Mike, who's largely favourite for the Champion Bumper at Cheltenham.

Her trainer expected her to finish much closer to him that day so that's surely a sign she does show a bit at home.

Prior to her second to American Mike, she was third in a listed bumper won by The Model Kingdom with Harmonya Maker (runs here) in second.

That bumper is working out well and she could have a big say in this.

Days: 92

This regally bred mare by Walk In The Park mare is a half sister to Altior no less.

She won her first and only start showing a good attitude to grind out the win.

Bellatior and the second (Kilbarry Chloe) pulled 14L clear of the rest so looked to be a class apart on the day.

The form hasn't worked out particularly well at all, but she represents good promise for a trainer who has a good record in bumpers.

She has a pedigree to die for and will certainly have learned a lot from her win last time out.

Will be there or thereabouts at the finish.

Another Willie Mullins trained mare here, by Walk In The Park represents a good pedigree and top connections.

The way she won on debut at Thurles was mightily impressive and will certainly have gone into a few notebooks.

The form of the race hasn't looked to good to date, but she was clearly in a league of her own that day and could be a nice horse going forward.

Age: 6

OR: N/A
Days: 39

One of the more exposed horses in the field, but she has ran to a fair enough level to date.

She looks solid, but in the context of this race could quite easily be outclassed.

On the other hand, lots of her rivals are unexposed and have won their only bumper thus far, whereas Flemencello has shown a hint of ability on more than one occasion - she could be in with a chance of grabbing some place money here at what's likely to be big odds.

Age: 5

Days: 37

Represents a very good form line with The Model Kingdom in a listed bumper with Battling Bessie behind.

That bumper is working out very well and Harmonya Maker won as she liked on her latest start, showing she has more than built on stacks of promise.

She looked a bit special that day and could well be the one who serves it up to Pink In The Park - rock solid chance and likely underestimated in the betting relative to Pink In The Park.

Should place - could well win.

Age: 5
Weight: 11-11
OR: N/A
Days: 128

Hi Stranger has had four runs to date - which is largely more than her rivals.

She looks to be more exposed than most and on the level of form she's shown, she would need to be pretty good to have a say in this.

She was second in a competitive listed bumper last time out though, which represents some ability.

Whether she's top class is a question mark.

OR: N/A
Days: 70

Dead-heated in a bumper last time out and looks to be more than up against it here.

Kilbunny Pontic did win a P2P over 3m on soft ground so looks to have lots of stamina.

She looks to be facing unexposed, pacier rivals in this race.

She must improve on her runs to date, the form doesn't look especially great either.

Likely a big priced outsider today, she will most likely run to her odds and finish down the field.

Hard to recommend.

Days: 20

A Fame And Glory mare boasting an unbeaten record - like lots of her rivals, she has run once and won once.

She's entitled to take her chance but her form leaves a lot to be desired.

She did assert close to home, offering value for the winning margin, and she may well improve again but will need to do so to get involved.

Days: 57

Won in the style of a nice horse at Fairyhouse on debut - she was eased down close home and was well on top at the finish.

She's 1/1 and entitled to come on for that debut effort.

Liberty Dance was certainly one of the more impressive debut winners - but would need to be very good to win this.

She could be anything - but whether she's good enough to trouble these - I'm not sure.

OR: N/A
Days: 193

She is 1/1 in her career - like a lot of her rivals here. She won a bumper at Perth, with the second winning since.

This was in July though, so whether she's at peak fitness for a hot Grade 2 such as this is a very good question.

She is nicely bred though, and will likely be one of the horses at backable e/w odds, it wouldn't be obscene to think she could run into a place, but would need to be very good to win.

Will need to improve to get involved.

A 16-1 winner of a Limerick bumper after two unplaced efforts prior.

Her winning form doesn't look to be all that special in hindsight, but she was quite impressive on the day.

Steadily improving but will need to find bundles to trouble her market rivals here.

W P Mullins
Age: 5
Weight: 11-8
OR: N/A
Days: 167

An odds-on winner on debut in Ballinrobe for trainer Willie Mullins. She travelled smoothly that day and dispatched her rivals with ease.

She is off a long lay off though (167 days) and does fall into the "could be anything" category; like most of her rivals she is unexposed.

Assuming she's fit and ready to race, she might well run a good race but she would need to improve to trouble her rivals.

W P Mullins
Age: 5
Weight: 11-8
OR: N/A
Days: 135

Likely a short priced favourite for this - Pink In The Park is a winner of her only start to date.

She was deeply impressive in a big field bumper at Listowel with a few of the horses running well enough subsequently.

She definitely went into lots of notebooks that day is one of the more fancied horses in the Champion Bumper betting at Cheltenham.

She hasn't run since the back end of September though so the lay off must be a concern at such short odds - but Willie Mullins is a master with a horse of this profile.

She's regally bred and is the one to beat.

Another one of these unbeaten Willie Mullins horses off a long lay off.

She won her only start at Tramore when 6-4 second favourite.

She was on top at the finish but didn't ooze class.

The form of that race hasn't worked out particularly well and there are plenty of other horses in this field that - on the evidence we have - look to have a better chance.

She should have improved with the time off the track though - but will need to be a very good horse and absolutely A1 to get involved today.

Miss M O'Sullivan
T:
 
Mrs John Harrington
Age: 4
Weight: 10-6
OR: N/A

An unraced 4yo by Australia trained by Jessie Harrington.

She does receive bags of weight and for a well bred filly to receive an entry in a Grade 2 on debut it's only a good sign.

She might well be a nice horse, but we have absolutely no form on the book to go on.

A watching brief for top connections.
