Trainer Lucy Wadham is keeping her fingers crossed Baby Shine enjoys better luck than on her previous visit to Ireland as she heads to Clonmel for Thursday's European Breeders Fund TA Morris Memorial Mares Chase.

The eight-year-old was in the process of running a huge race when tipping up at the final fence in the Dawn Run Mares Novice Chase at Limerick in March, but bounced back with a couple of placed efforts at Cheltenham and Haydock.

She makes her first appearance since May in tomorrow’s Grade Three contest, but Wadham is hoping for a bold show.

"There is a bit of trepidation after what happened at Limerick, but she's in good form and hopefully she can stay on her feet this time," said the trainer.

"We were hoping to give her a prep run, but we didn't have time for that in the end, so she's having her first run of the season. We're happy with her, though.

"I gather it's going to be a pretty horrible day tomorrow and the ground could come up fairly testing, but we'll see.

"I'd prefer it if it wasn't quite so wet, but she has form on all ground, so we can't really use that as an excuse."

Baby Shine is joined on the trip from Britain by the Nicky Henderson-trained Une Artiste, who is no stranger to racing on Irish soil.

The six-year-old won a Grade Three at Fairyhouse in April and also ran at Punchestown and Thurles last season.

Anthony Bromley, representative for owner Simon Munir, said: "She went to Ireland a few times last year and it worked well.

"There are lots of good races for mares there, particularly chasers."

Robert Tyner saddles the JP McManus-owned Byerley Babe, who beat Une Artiste a nose at Thurles in January.

She finished a creditable fourth on her recent return to action in a hurdle race at Wexford.

Tyner said: "She made a mistake at the third last (at Wexford) and was probably a bit unlucky, but she should come on for the run.

"She's a little bit wrong at the weights with Nicky Henderson's mare after beating her a nose at Thurles earlier in the year, so we'll see what happens.

"She should be OK with the ground."

The David Budds-trained Kates Benefit, Robert Murphy's Mrs Mac Veale and Definite Ruby from Gordon Elliott's yard also feature in a 13-strong field.
