Observations: June 13, 2019


Al Kazeem | Racing Post

Observations on the European Racing Scene turns the spotlight on the best European races of the day, highlighting well-pedigreed horses early in their careers, horses of note returning to action and young runners that achieved notable results in the sales ring. Today’s Observations features a half-sister to Al Kazeem debuting.

2.00 Newbury, Cond, £7,400, 2yo, 6 1/2fT
Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed Al Maktoum’s GOLD SOUK (IRE) (Casamento {Ire}) is a homebred half to MGSW & MG1SP G1 Epsom Derby runner-up Dee Ex Bee (GB) (Farhh {GB}). Debuting for the same Mark Johnston stable, his opponents include Wren (GB) (Raven’s Pass), a Roger Charlton-trained daughter of G1 Cheveley Park S. heroine Magical Romance (Ire) (Barathea {Ire}).

2.10 Nottingham, Mdn, £6,500, 3yo/up, 8f 75yT
Khalid Abdullah’s FRONTMAN (GB) (Kingman {GB}), a John Gosden trainee, is a half-brother to G1 Nassau S. heroine Winsili (GB) (Dansili {GB}) and faces six rivals in this belated debut. They include Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s Maydanny (Ire) (Dubawi {Ire}), who is a son of MG1SW Attraction (GB) (Efisio {GB}), returning off a debut second at Beverley for the William Haggas stable last month.

2.30 Newbury, Cond, £8,550, 3yo, f, 8fT
George Scott trainee NARAK (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) is a homebred half-sister to Saturday’s G3 Pinnacle S. victress Klassique (GB) (Galileo {Ire}) out of Chachamaidee (Ire) (Footstepsinthesand {GB}), who posted a career high when handed the G1 Matron S. in the stewards’ room. She goes postward against a cast of 10, including John Deer’s Kingslady (GB) (Kingman {GB}), who is a homebred half-sister to MG1SW sire Al Kazeem (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}), debuting for Eve Johnson Houghton.

2.50 Great Yarmouth, Mdn, £5,800, unraced 2yo, f, 6f 3yT
Godolphin nominee SUMMER ROMANCE (IRE) (Kingman {GB}) bettered a 300,000gns price tag at last year’s Tattersalls October Book 1 Sale by securing the second-highest price–€800,000–at last month’s Arqana Breeze-Up. The Charlie Appleby debutante is a half-sister to G1 Moyglare Stud S. and G1 Coronation S. victress Rizeena (Ire) (Iffraaj {GB}) and is the likely favourite in this four-runner affair. Danger lurks in the shape of Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s €230,000 Goffs November foal Huboor (Ire) (More Than Ready), a Mark Johnston trainee.
