WELL OF WISDOM (GB) (c, 2, Oasis Dream (GB)">Oasis Dream {GB}–Alessandria {GB}, by Sunday Silence), from the family of G1 Middle Park S.-winning sire Lycius (Mr. Prospector) and MGISP sire Akabir (Riverman), chased the leaders in sixth after an alert getaway in this debut. Gaining ground when nudged along after halfway, the 5-1 chance went fourth entering the final furlong and quickened smartly under rousting on the climb to the line to edge out fellow Godolphin nominee Electrical Storm (GB) (Dubawi {Ire}) by a half length in the dying strides. “William [Buick] told me he was just rolling around a little bit early doors, but he came home strong and at the end of the day his pedigree suggests he wants a bit further,” explained Charlie Appleby. “Stepping up to six [furlongs] will be the most logical way forward and he will want another run before we look at Royal Ascot. The [June 18 G2] Coventry would be the obvious race there.” He becomes the fifth scorer produced by a winning daughter of MG1SP G3 Prix de Cabourg victress Tereshkova (Mr. Prospector) and the homebred bay is a half-brother to last month's G1 Ranvet S. and G1 H E Tancred S. hero Avilius (GB) (Pivotal {GB}), MGSW G1 Prix du Jockey Club and G1 Grand Prix de Paris placegetter Saint Baudolino (Ire) (Pivotal {GB}), MGSP Listed Prix de Suresnes victor Army Bulletin (Ire) (Invincible Spirit {Ire}) and a yearling colt by Dubawi (Ire). Lifetime Record: 1-1-0-0, $6,749.
