Blue Point had been given plenty of time after his winning debut over this trip at Nottingham June 9, where he looked notably green despite needing only tender handling to comfortably assert his superiority. Sent off the 3-10 favourite with the vibesstrong, he tanked along in a close-up second initially and assumed the lead before the first two furlongs were up. Pushed out to extend into an unassailable advantage from halfway, the 110,000gns TATFOA foal and 200,000gns TATOCT yearling was eased inside the last furlong but still had 11 lengths to spare over the filly Shamsaya (Ire) (Shamardal), who had last been seen finishing fourth in the Listed Empress S. The winner is a half-brother to the G2 Railway S. winner Formosina (Ire) (Footstepsinthesand {GB}), GSW-Ire & GSP-Eng, $185,830, out of a half-sister to the G3 Horris Hill S. and threetimes G3 Ballycorus S.-winning sire Tumbleweed Ridge (GB) and to the dam of the G2 Queen Mary S. winner Gilded (Ire) (Redback {GB}). Lifetime Record: 2-2-0-0, $10,645.
