What kind of genetics will my platy fry have?

Hello, I have 3 platy fish in my 20 gallon tank and I recently noticed that 2 of the 3 are pregnant. I of course don't plan to keep all of the fry, I'm giving them to lovely homes, but I can't help but be curious as to what the genetics could Possibly be. Im aware that the genetics cant be accurately determined for sure unless you know the complete lineage of the fish that have bred, but assuming theyre purebloods (theyre absolutely not) I'm curious as to what I'll end up with. (Keep in mind I do have a nursery tank set up, both mommas are so so very gravid)

As of right now, I have a golden mickey mouse high fin, a red wagtail high fin, and a neon blue wagtail high fin.

I got these fish about a month ago, so I'm not even sure if my blue platy is the dad, but assuming he is (right now, he definetly will be in the future) what are the possible outcomes of fry? I really want to know if it's possible to get a neon wagtail that also has the iconic mickey mouse stamp. I also am aware that tank quality has a factor, so ive tested ph and every other test i have, and they seem to be in the range where the fry colour will develop nicely and prefferably quickly. I will try to get some clear photos of my 3 adults and reply with them if asked! Thanks!
