Bloomfield, winner of the Noblesse Stakes at Cork last month, steps up two furlongs in trip as she bids for a second Listed race success in a contest named after the filly who provided the great Paddy Mullins with Classic success in the 2003 Irish St Leger.
Billy Lee's mount will be renewing rivalry with Glamorous Approach, who finished second to her at Cork, and trainer Willie McCreery said: "Bloomfield won the Noblesse in good style and, while she has further to travel this time, the ground will be less testing than it was at Cork and that should suit. She's in good form."
Detailed, an improved performer last season when she won four times, achieved Listed success in the Martin Molony Stakes at Limerick in October.
Trainer Joseph O'Brien, who is also represented by High Language, said: "Detailed is in good form. She's run well over the trip [fourth in the Park Hill Stakes last season] and we're hoping for a good run on her first start of the year.
"High Language is tackling the trip for the first time and we'll be happy if she could pick up some black type."
Naughty Or Nice, winner of her first two starts last year before finishing in rear in the Ribblesdale Stakes – when her saddle slipped – and the Irish Oaks, represents John Oxx, who said: "She won the Listed Yeats Stakes at Navan last year but she's been off the track since the Irish Oaks and, while she's in good form, she might need the race."
