Dubawi | Darley

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. Friday's Observations features a full-sister to Group 1 winner and young sire Too Darn Hot (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}).

Lord Lloyd Webber's untried DARMOISELLE (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) is a daughter of MG1SW distaffer Dar Re Mi (GB) (Singspiel {Ire}) and thus a homebred full-sister to MG1SW sire Too Darn Hot (GB), MG1SP G2 Middleton S. victrix Lah Ti Dar (GB) and stakes-winning G1 Prix de l'Opera third So Mi Dar (GB). She is set to load alongside Qatar Racing's John and Thady Gosden-conditioned stablemate Emotion (GB) (Frankel {GB}), who is kin to dual Group 1-placed stayer Morgan Le Faye (GB) (Shamardal) out of G1 Prix du Cadran victrix Molly Malone (Fr) (Lomitas {GB}). Harry and Roger Charlton also multitask and send out Time Lock (GB) (Frankel {GB}), who is a granddaughter of G1 Criterium de Saint-Cloud winner Passage of Time (GB) (Dansili {GB}) produced by a full-sister to MG1SP sire Time Test (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}); and Merry Fox Stud's homebred Golden Sheen (GB) (Frankel {GB}), who is the first foal out of a full-sister to G1 Grosser Preis von Berlin victor Second Step (Ire) (Dalakhani {Ire}). Of those with prior experience, Sir Michael Stoute trainee Crystal Estrella (GB) (Iffraaj {GB}) is a contender of note coming back off a debut seventh at Newmarket in October. Her stakes-placed sibling Crystal Hope (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}) backed up a debut seventh in the October of her juvenile campaign with a 'TDN Rising Star' performance in the 2018 edition of this on seasonal return. Crystal Estrella and Crystal Hope are out of a half-sister to ultra-consistent G1 Prince of Wales's S.-winning sire Crystal Ocean (GB) (Sea The Stars {Ire}). Other Newmarket nominees set to venture south include Chris Wright's homebred Tequilamockingbird (GB) (New Approach {Ire}), who is out of a half-sister to G1 Prix du Moulin-winning matriarch Grey Lilas (Ire) (Danehill), from the Charlie Fellowes stable; and Roger Varian incumbent Oblong Song (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}), who is a twice-raced half-sister to G1 Sun Chariot S. victrix Spinning Queen (GB) (Spinning World). With the aforementioned Emotion slated to sport the number one silks, Qatar Racing's second colours will be carried by the Ralph Beckett-trained New Year Honours (GB) (Nathaniel {Ire}), who is out of a half-sister to G1 1000 Guineas demotee Jacqueline Quest (Ire) (Rock of Gibraltar {Ire}), herself the dam of three black-type performers headed by GI Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf hero Line of Duty (Ire) (Galileo {Ire}).
