Verdict

Mahmood Al Zarooni has entered three in this normally informative conditions stakes but Mikael Barzalona has gone for DESERT BLOSSOM ahead of Chesham Stakes third Lovely Pass and Newmarket winner Music Chart and we'll follow suit. Impressive when beating more experienced stablemate Valley Of Queens on debut at HQ, the Shamardal filly is the type to improve further. The Richard Hannon pair Fleeting Smile and Mystical Moment have arguably shown the best form so far and there shouldn't be much to choose between them here while Nice Story and Winsili won their maidens at the first time of asking and are well worth a try at this higher level.
