The first race of the 2023 Racing League season sees the Nursery Handicap over 5f and now sent into this sphere Desert Master can get off the mark for his career.
A horse that has showed plenty of good form this term without winning but now put into handicaps has a big chance to get off the mark.
Making his debut in April at Ripon finishing a close second behind the talented Ziggy's Phoenix, he then went to Nottingham on heavy ground and again had to settle for second.
Sent back to Ripon on rapid ground that he did not take to, he put up his only bad run of the season to date.
Getting back to slightly easier ground at Chester when finishing a narrow second to another smart type in Liv My Life for Richard Hannon, he was last seen over the same C&D when once again bumping into two smart types and settling for third.
Now handicapping off a mark of 74 on ground he handles better than most, he is worth sticking with.
