Charles Hills continues to identify strong opportunities for his US-bred colt, Shaishee, to get off the mark only for the Indian Charlie colt to continually find one to good. He did not seem to improve last time at Warwick when easily swept aside by Majesty over 7f but should be more effective returned to 1m. The only contender between him and the all-important first success is DESERT REVOLUTION who posted a debut full of promise when runner-up at Wolverhampton. He was arguably unlucky that day after encountering traffic problems and seems sure to improve. At the likely prices, he's taken to go one better. The remaining trio look limited with Bollin Bob a token choice for third spot.
