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. Saturday's Observations features multiple Group 1 winner Angel Bleu (Fr).

Marc Chan's 2021 G1 Prix Jean-Luc Lagardere and G1 Criterium International hero ANGEL BLEU (FR) (Dark Angel {Ire}) makes his seasonal comeback in this Listed Spreadex Sports Lady Wulfruna S., a fast-track qualifier for the Apr. 7 All-Weather Championship Finals at Newcastle. “This is not a prep for the All-Weather Championships finals, but it is a prep for the rest of the year,” insisted trainer Ralph Beckett. Last seen running fifth in July's G1 Sussex S. at Goodwood, the 4-year-old bay encounters seven rivals including 2021 G2 Coventry S. victor Berkshire Shadow (GB) (Dark Angel {Ire}), representing Andrew Balding; 2021 G2 Superlative S. third Dhabab (Ire) (No Nay Never), from the John and Thady Gosden stable; and last year's winner Tinker Toy (GB) (War Front), a Roger Varian trainee.
