Sir Michael Stoute told the assembled racing media after Desert Crown’s Dante win: “I was cautious because Desert Crown had the hold up and he’s only just up for a race now. I was very pleased. He was impressive in his maiden and we got behind schedule.
“We had to do what we did and he didn’t let me down, he surprised me actually. That was very encouraging.
“Others in the race will improve too but you would expect some improvement from him because it’s only his second start.
“It was a very pleasing performance because this was only race two for him and we just got him ready.”
