Winning point-to-pointer SINORIA won a Listed race over hurdles at Punchestown in February and looked a high-class recruit to fences when slamming a decent field in a mares' beginner' event at Thurles. She's taking on much better opposition but looks one to follow. Tintangle, a very useful hurdler, has jumped well in both starts over fences which she has won with ease while Elimay sauntered home in a Listed contest over hurdles at Killarney in May and looks another quality recruit to the bigger obstacles. Agusta Gold wasn't far behind Tintangle at Fairyhouse and is 4lb better off.
