Verdict

Timikar showed promise on his introduction at Leopardstown in November and was always likely to make a better three-year-old but HUDSON'S BAY was thought good enough to make his debut in a Dundalk Listed race and he really caught the eye with a promising display behind subsequent Dubai Grade 2 winner Lines Of Battle. Jim Bolger's Teofilo colt looks the one to be on though Aidan O'Brien's Ruler Of The World, a half-brother to Duke Of Marmalade amongst other winners, is likely to prove a big threat on his debut. Park Place may prove best of the remainder.
