@SearleJamie: The owners of Tintinara will pay the Sires' Stakes late entry fee of $17,250 if she produces the goods at Ascot Park tomorrow.

She has drawn the ace in a strong line up for the $25,000 Caduceus Club of Southland Fillies' Classic at the Northern Southland Trotting Club meeting. Woodend Beach trainer Robert Dunn said yesterday Tintinara was a quality filly with a bright future.

Tintinara finished third in the $25,000 Leonard Memorial at Addington on March 2 at her only start. She led, but was outfinished in the run home by the Mark Purdon and Natalie Rasmussen-trained pairing of Supersonic Miss (winner) and Fight For Glory.

''She did a bit of work early,'' Dunn said of Tintinara, a daughter of Falcon Seelster and Arden's Fame.

''She's a very fast filly.''

Fight For Glory is a rival again tomorrow. She did well in Leonard Memorial because she was three lengths off leader Tintinara turning for home and got within a neck of Supersonic Miss. The leaders' final 800m was clocked in 56.5.

By Art Major, Fight For Glory won her two other starts with front running tactics in a heat of the Sires' Stakes (February 15) and Sales Series Graduette (March 14) at Addington.

Joanne's A Delight, also starting in the Classic, finished second in the Graduette after racing without cover. She was two and a-half lengths from Fight For Glory, who ran her last 800m in 57.5.
