MAGNOLIA BEACH attracted strong support on his debut over 7f here last month and though unable to catch Pit Stop he was staying on very strongly at the finish and the extra furlong looks certain to suit. Princess Glamour really caught the eye at Leopardstown as she was reluctant at the start and took an age to warm up but then came with a late run. She looks a threat while Princess Pearlita made a promising debut at Killarney and though starting favourite at Listowel she didn't enjoy the heavy ground and was beaten 7l into second.
