In depth


Darling Miss completed a hat-trick over hurdles in the UK during the summer and has been a bit unfortunate to come up against useful opponents over fences. Agusta Gold, placed in Listed and Grade 3 company over hurdles in the spring, will have found 2m on the short side when reappearing over fences at Fairyhouse. She can reverse the form with runner-up Inishbel while Belle West arrives in good form having won over timber at Sligo and made a promising start over fences when not beaten far on the same track. SINORIA looks a bright prospect for chasing having won a point-to-point and a maiden hurdle before landing a Listed contest over timber at Punchestown. She was well beaten at Cheltenham but has the class to make a successful debut over fences
