Form & Verdict
A line through the runner-up here (6f, good) 12 days ago gives her a bit to find with Desert Haven and First Gentleman, though not a lot and that was her debut; seemed to be getting the hang of things late on; should improve.

Form & Verdict
Very closely matched with Desert Haven, whom he was a length behind here on his April debut (6f, heavy) and a short-head in front of at Cork a month ago (soft to heavy); shouldn't mind this quicker ground and cheekpieces are now fitted, so could find something.

Clear prospects on his best form but there are several negatives attached to his profile too; beaten favourite on four occasions since a promising debut at the Curragh in May; appears to have lost form, though run was too bad to be true in 6f Curragh maiden in which Nouvel Espoir was third.
