Like A Diamond was placed on the Polytrack at Dundalk in September and has joined a new yard since. He's rated much higher than Jullundar and should go close. Memphis Magic has found one too good in both starts at this track though he was well beaten on both occasions and preference goes to BOUCLIER. Luca Cumani's colt could only manage second when sent off favourite for his debut at Lingfield but normal progress should see him make amends in this. Doldrums cost 300,000 dollars as a yearling and makes a belated racecourse debut.
