Darley stallion Charming Thought (GB) (Oasis Dream {GB}), who operated out of Dalham Hall Stud for a fee of £5,000 this year, became the latest European freshman sire off the mark when the Tick Tock Partnership's Alicestar (GB) claimed a debut score going a shade over six furlongs in Wednesday's Southwold Novice Auction S. at Great Yarmouth.

ALICESTAR (GB) (f, 2, Charming Thought {GB}–Atheera {Ire}, by Shamardal) found cover in fifth from the outset of this unveiling.

She is the latest of four winning foals produced by a winning granddaughter of G1 Irish 1000 Guineas heroine Mehthaaf (Nureyev), herself a half-sister to G1 July Cup-winning sire Elnadim (Danzig).
