Blue For You was very green at Leopardstown and, with his yard hitting form, massive improvement is expected here from the New Approach colt. Bred to stay, Trusted Ally was keeping on at Limerick but will prove do better over a mile. Lust has already raced over that longer trip but couldn’t justify favouritism at Navan. WEMBLEY can get the Festival off to a winning start for Ballydoyle as his second at the Curragh was a significant step forward for the son of Galileo, who is a brother to four useful winners.
