From your list I've only ridden the Idol and I liked it, pretty stable. Would serve your purpose.
Don't know the Ride Baretta, but the '13 Farah which would fit as well http://www.snowboardingforum.com/wom...-153-13-a.html

What makes you think that? A 144 is pretty small for what you aim to ride (carving n speed).
If you look at the weight ranges of e.g. the Baretta, you'd fit in a 151 or even 154 tho I wouldn't recommend to go from a 144 directly on a 154, could be bit of a big step, but... the bigger you go, the more edge you have to work with for carving and more stable at speed.
