CONSTANTINE was a tad disappointing when only beating one home on his debut at Nottingham but that experience will stand him in good stead against his unraced rivals and Richard Hughes prefers him to stablemate Ice Slice. The latter, Aspirant, Homestretch and Rock Of Dreams are all worth noting for future reference while Loving Your Work cost 44,000gns and makes more appeal than Frankie's mount Silver Starlet.
