Verdict

ELIMAY was left to pick up the pieces when Sinoria had a fatal fall at the second last on her chasing bow at Cork. However, she was going best at the time and would have won anyway so it was an impressive performance. She holds Agusta Gold on that run though the latter will be much better suited by this longer trip. Tintangle was well beaten and looks held but the selection's stable companion Cut The Mustard looked a fine chasing prospect when scoring easily at Limerick. Caravation made most and came home in good style at Naas and should be winning again soon, though she takes on much better class.
