Verdict

DESERTMORE STREAM had been threatening to win a race for some time before gaining an impressive maiden success at Clonmel and a mark of 118 doesn't look excessive for his handicap debut. He can get the better of Black Spot On, who has been making rapid progress and followed his maiden victory at Down Royal with a battling success on the Flat at Leopardstown. Hurler And Farmer makes a quick reappearance after scoring at Wexford and a 6lb rise doesn't look too much of a problem while the ex-French Blue Hell was aimed high in a Grade 2 on his debut for Tony Mullins and should find this more to his liking.
