AIDAN O'BRIEN runs Black Rock Desert in the Group Three Gladness Stakes at the Curragh tomorrow. Black Rock Desert is at 11-1 for the 2,000 Guineas with Ladbrokes.

Blue Cloud remains on course for the 1,000 Guineas after a narrow victory in the Prix Imprudence over seven furlongs at Maisons-Laffitte yesterday. The Andre Fabre-trained, Oliver Peslier-ridden filly, the odds-on favourite, beat Ronda with Rangoon Ruby a close third.

Meanwhile, Criquette Head has confirmed the 1,000 Guineas favourite Moiava remains on course for Newmarket.

In the Prix Djebel, Berkoutthi, 11-1, also ridden by Peslier, gained a neck victory over the Fabre-trained 2,000 Guineas entry Restless War. No decision on Restless War's possible participation at Newmarket will be made until nearer the time.
