Jockeys plans for Ballydoyle will be difficult to fathom this year. They won this last season with Samuel Morse and today's entries, Boris Grigoriev and RAPHAEL SANTI, will be forward enough to do themselves justice. Both are by Coolmore's first-season sire Excellent Art and the latter gets the vote by virtue of having the speedier pedigree. Dermot Weld's Modigliani filly Danziger is the first foal of a dam from a speedy family while Kevin Manning chooses Dayrina of Jim Bolger's pair though she's bred to be better over slightly further.
