Dutch Art Dealer was sent off favourite for an Ascot maiden on debut but failed to quicken with the first two after travelling strong at halfway. He'll know more today but the second has let the form down since and QATAR PRINCESS produced an equally promising first run over today's course and distance last week. Providing this doesn't come too quickly, Olly Stevens' filly could open her account today though Newbury third Sandy Cove appears to be heading in the right direction and a market move for either Midnight Rambler or Mocacha would be significant.
