DESERT WINGS improved dropping down to 7f at Warwick last time when finding only one too good. He gets the nod ahead of Godolphin's other runner, Takaathur, but Zuhd may give him something to think about. The last-named finished fourth over a mile here on his racecourse debut and makes more appeal than the others with experience. Puteri Kash is related to a winner and could prove best of the newcomers.
