Verdict

Due Diligence made a winning debut for Todd Pletcher at Saratoga before a very good run on firm going in a Group 3 at Belmont in October. He's still in the 2000 Guineas and is an obvious one to keep an eye on. Magnolia Beach has experience of the track having run both races, including a victory over a mile, here last season. Prince Of All made a promising debut at the Curragh and showed that the experience wasn't lost on his when coming here last month and gaining an emphatic victory. He's in the Irish 2000 Guineas and is well regarded. Colour Blue had just one success from seven starts but ran well in all of her races and should get into the frame. Jim Bolger had PLAMAS fit and ready to go on her debut in very testing ground at Gowran last week. She gained a decisive victory and with today's better ground sure to suit she looks the one to be on.
