The Mick Mulvany-trained Fratas is set to tackle stakes company next weekend before going on a summer break.

The daughter of Fracas was last seen pulling up in the Triumph Hurdle at Cheltenham last month, having won over timber at Fairyhouse in November.

She enjoyed a remarkable campaign on the Flat last season, winning five times. The four-year-old opened her account off a lowly mark of 60 and ended the year rated 88.

Mulvany revealed at the Curragh yesterday that she will be entered in two Listed races in the upcoming week.

“She's seems to be in good enough form and we'll probably run her next weekend, either in the Noblesse Stakes or the Vintage Crop.

“We'll give her an entry in both and then have a look and see. At the moment that's the target and after that we'll probably give her a break as she's been in training for a long time.

“The major target is the Lartigue Hurdle at Listowel.”
