Thank you question.
My name is ***** ***** I will do my best to help you
Her chances of success, based on all that you have told me, are very very small.
It appears that your mother was mentally capable at the time she made the Will, had a good reason your sister and even made those reasons clear.
i suspect your sister is hoping that she will be offered something to simply go away to save the estate the cost of actually fighting the claim
Please ask if you need further details
