Joshua Tree: Form boosted by Danedream

Joshua Tree is pleasing Marco Botti ahead of his run in the Pattison Canadian International at Woodbine on October 16.

The four-year-old was beaten 13 lengths in third by subsequent Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe winner Danedream in the Grosser Preis von Baden at Baden-Baden last time.

Considering the former Aidan O'Brien trained-horse was giving her 12lbs in unsuitable heavy ground Botti was delighted with the run and he's also happy with his horse's current well-being.

"Danedream hasn't stopped improving and I thought the form from Germany was very strong," Botti told skysports.com.

"Considering we gave her weight and he didn't like the ground it was a fantastic run.

"He's very well and working well - he's shining in his coat. The plan is still to go to Canada and I'm looking forward to it."
