This isn't the strongest of bumpers and Princess Leya, who was well supported on her debut at Gowran a month ago and ran well for a long way, should be good enough to reach the frame without beating BEHANA. The latter put a moderate debut behind to finish runner-up behind Shesafoxylady at Punchestown and the winner has already given the form a major boost. Hell Cat Maggie, who wasn't too far behind in fifth on her debut in that Punchestown event, should get closer while Crofton Trail has shown some promise in bumpers but ran poorly over hurdles at Listowel in September.
