Verdict

DIAMOND BRIG disappointed in 3 starts last season but he bounced back to make a winning debut for this yard at Uttoxeter on return in November and is open to further improvement for this stable. Dragonfruit switches back to chasing having made a winning debut in this sphere at Carlisle and rates the main danger, with Grand Turina best of the others.
