Verdict

COLOUR BLUE followed a very close third behind Wonderfully over this track and trip with a decent run in a Group 3 at the Curragh. That sort of form would make her very difficult to beat and she gets the vote over Pillow, who attempted to make all over 7f here last time but was caught in the closing stages. Pixie Hollow should do better over further in time and Too Many Diamonds has been racing over longer trips without showing much improvement.
