Placed in the Rockfel at Newmarket when last seen on track in 2012, Desert Blossom would have been better served by faster ground on her return. The going was soft at Ascot when DANEHILL REVIVAL ran well in Listed company. She was partnered by Ryan Moore when winning easily at Pontefract on her debut and he's back on board for this. Musicora looks likely to handle the prevailing ground better than Askaud, though Crowley's Law won nicely at Haydock recently and makes more appeal than both if taking to the surface.
