The Sportsman's Verdict
DESERT RETREAT hasn't exactly followed in the hoofprints of his brother, Grade 1-winner Summerville Boy, but did enjoy success in a point-to-point two outings ago at Penshurst. Alan Hill's gelding is taken to get the better of Kit Barry, who shaped at Cheltenham earlier in the month as though he would benefit from a stiffer test of stamina than he encounters on this occasion, and This Breac.
