Expert Eye | Racingfotos.com

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. Wednesday's Insights features a half-brother to Breeders' Cup winner Expert Eye (GB) (Acclamation {GB}).

4.20 Kempton, Novice, £6,300, 2yo, 7f (AWT)
DUTY OF CARE (GB) (Kingman {GB}) debuts for Khalid Abdullah and Sir Michael Stoute, who combined to capture the 2018 GI Breeders' Cup Mile with his half-brother Expert Eye (GB) (Acclamation {GB}). The March-foaled bay, whose family also features the dual Classic winner Special Duty (GB) (Hennessy), gets a seven-pound allowance from Shadwell's Chelmsford winner Maraakiz (Ire) (Muhaarar {GB}), a William Haggas-trained son of the South African Group 1 winner Entisaar (Aus) (More Than Ready).
4.55 Kempton, Novice, £6,300, 2yo, 7f (AWT)
HIGHLAND AVENUE (IRE) (Dubawi {Ire}) is another notable newcomer in this second division of the novice races on the card, being the first foal out of the G1 Cheveley Park S. heroine Lumiere (GB) (Shamardal). Charlie Appleby has charge of Godolphin's January-foaled grey and early indications are that he is expected to score first time as his dam and second dam did to such impressive effect.
