Formscan By Alan Magee - KATES BENEFIT sets the standard here with two bumper wins last term and a third placing behind Marasonnien in a Naas maiden hurdle sandwiched in-between. Her fitness must be taken on trust following a near 11 months lay-off but that looks a chance worth taking. Jeunopse has plenty of jumping experience and the Carberrys’ mare has generally been a model of consistency. She kept on nicely in the straight to again make the frame in a similar event over course and distance last time and will not lack for stamina. Point-to-point winner Shershewill has also indicated a modest mares maiden should be within her capability, and is worth trying again over this extra half mile. Queen Of The Hill was just half a length behind subsequent impressive bumper winner Byerley Babe when the pair made the frame in the Thurles mares maiden hurdle won by Annie Power.
