The five-year old was last seen in action when pulling up behind stablemate Black Hercules in a Grade Three at Cork in December.

Steve Massey, spokesman for owners Supreme Racing Club, said: "Ask Vic has been a little star for us.

"She didn't handle the heavy ground at Cork but before that she was beaten less than a length by Martello Tower, who has since gone on to win the Albert Bartlett at the Cheltenham Festival.

"She needs a few to come out of the race but I am sure she will get a run.

"It will be a tough race, but she'll be on a nice weight and goes well fresh.

"The faster ground will suit her a lot better."
