Sir Michael Stoute's juveniles are rarely fully tuned up for their debuts and there was a lot to like about the first appearance of Darshini at Sandown.
The Sir Percy colt went off at 14-1 and knew a bit about the job, staying on nicely in the closing stages to finish behind the more experienced and very well-regarded Mustadeem.
With this under his belt, expect him to be off the mark the next time he runs and he would appear to be a nice middle-distance prospect to watch.
Pointers From The Gallops
TULLIUS moved stealthily in his winding-up gallop for the Coral-Eclipse Stakes and looks a live outsider for Sandown's midsummer feature on Saturday.
Andrew Balding has done well with the talented Tullius, who will be seeking a second victory at the Esher track this year.
He formed part of a two-pronged Kingsclere attack on the Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot and fared better than stablemate Side Glance in finishing an honourable fourth to Toronado.
HAVANA BEAT is amongst Balding's good staying prospects and is an intended runner in the Coral Marathon.
He needs to raise his game, but has been in very good form at home.
WHIPLASH WILLIE was taken out of the Queen Alexandra Stakes because of unsuitable ground and wages war with Havana Beat at Sandown.
He has been doing everything right on the main all-weather and is worth following through the wetter autumn weeks.
BORN IN BOMBAY stormed home at Royal Ascot in the popular silks of American George Strawbridge and has done well in the interim.
He has the scope to mature into a serious horse and could return to the track at the July meeting next week.
